Create a beautiful watercolor and ink painting of poinsettias that you could use for your own holiday cards, give as a gift or just enjoy on your wall for the season. This two-hour workshop by Deanna Weinholtz will take you through adding ink to your drawing and completing it with very expressive watercolor. Learn how to splatter watercolor paint, paint an abstract background using wet in wet technique, and to enjoy the process of using watercolors with ink. You may use your own photo of poinsettias or use the line drawing of poinsettias the instructor will supply before the class.

Deanna Weinholtz is a Watermedia Artist from Western New York who is best known for her luminous landscapes and seascapes in watercolor and acrylics. Her creations have been displayed in numerous exhibitions and galleries and have won national and regional awards. Many of her creations are featured in the homes of her collectors.
Deanna's inspiration comes from travels throughout the United States, Canada and Italy. The Kawartha Lakes in Canada is one of her favorite subjects and is frequently featured in her paintings. Observing spectacular sunsets over the water and the Northern Lights occasionally dancing across the sky has inspired a number of her paintings. Deanna uses large brushes, rags and her fingers to create spontaneous, intuitive paintings that are a beautiful mix of representational abstract.
