Upcoming Events

Come along to our meetups to improve your art in a relaxed and social atmosphere and under the guidance of a professional instructor. Complete beginners to experienced artists all welcome.

Our 2 hour meetups are held in a different location each time, usually outdoors.

Bring your own materials. If you are a complete beginner all you need to start is a set of watercolour paints, brushes, and water container.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to experienced artists. The instructor is there to help everyone.

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Knoxville Watercolor Group on Facebook to share your art and enjoy the art of other locals.
She was absolutely fantastic. Very very helpful and patient, very good teacher! :)
My suggestion would be to give a better address for those of us who do not live here with Knoxville. There was no phone number I could call ahead of time and for reasons, unknown, my navigator did not get me there. I finally found the park that drove around and round and round trying to locate the class. I have just finished three months in the hospital and I was looking forward to this so much. But after being 40 minutes late, because I was lost, I did not get to attend. I would hope that you would reconsider and allow me to attend another class since I pre-paid for this event. And I trust that in the future, a better address will be given. Thank you for your consideration. Charmaine Nichols 865-924-3430

Taken at local park as sun was setting. The light as the sun was setting reminded me of a painting from a tutorial I had previously worked on. It was reminiscent of the French countryside and was something that looked so peaceful.

Newcastle Watercolour Group
Title or Location: Gracie
I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.

I saw a photo of a beautiful cat on Facebook and asked the owner if I could paint it - Matt Raatz agreed and I created this line and wash using ink and Roman Szmal watercolours and Posca pen for fine details.When I showed the painting to Matt he asked to purchase the original and it has since been shipped to Wisconsin.
