Watercolor Painting Tips


For All Levels of Watercolor Painters

My name is Mary Ann Boysen and I have been sharing watercolor painting tips with my classroom students, and in books, for many years. While I still teach, I also travel extensively which limits the amount of classroom time I have. 

So I decided to expand my web presence with watercolor-painting-tips.com to let my students, and anyone else who might be interested, find answers to questions without having to signup for a class.
