JOIN THE WAITLIST

Imagine making beautiful, expressive florals with simple techniques and your own inner guidance. Together we will walk through the process of letting go of your perfectionist fear and find your flow to create ethereal intuitive artwork.

 

I Know Perfectionism Feels Less Scary Than Intuition.

When art is conceived from a deeply intuitive place , it translates into that effervescent heart expansion you feel when you look at it… but internal pressure to get the art “just right” is the very thing that brings you out of intuitive flow and into your perfectionism. I created this class, based on my signature watercolor florals, to guide you to release the feeling of overwhelm when you stand in front of your blank paper  and, instead, focus on a simple process that creates expressive, fluid florals, no matter your skill level.

No stress...

just experimenting and creating with ease.

 

This was an excellent class for watercolor beginners, as well as for anybody who wants to recover from perfectionism. The steps are actionable and the results are astonishing. Stephanie redirects attention towards intuition and qualities of watercolor materials. Her lessons unblocked even my fears and that is something.

hey there, friend!

I'm Stephanie Ryan

WATERCOLOR ARTIST

I create art that touches the heart and inspires the creative spirit. My soothing, soulful, intuitive paintings are inspired by nature and the feelings that bind me to it, creating an introspective mood that connects my viewer with my art. I see my work as visual poetry—beautiful colors with touches of light and inspired thoughts.

I can't wait to guide you.

I have been creating art for as long as I can remember and even started writing during a particularly challenging time in my life. Through that experience, I was able to find a new appreciation for life and a profound calling to create art and words that inspire, encourage and comforts others. I have honed my ability to translate beautiful imagery and words into appealing consumer products that can be found at leading retailers and gift stores around the world.

And now I want to guide you to find your own watery, intuitive flow as you create your own art that inspires...

  • Stuck in perfectionism… which means stuck procrastinating.
  • Unsure how to let your intuition lead your art process.
  • Wishing you had simple skills & knowledge so you can just get started.
  • Getting lost in your own negative self-talk about the quality of your art.

INTRODUCING

Intuitive Watercolor Florals

LEARN MY SIGNATURE WATERCOLOR FLORAL TECHNIQUE AND HOW TO TAP INTO THE INTUITIVE FLOW THAT BRINGS IT ALL TO LIFE.

 Imagine being able to create from a place of peace and knowing. Intuitive painting is about connecting to your source and feeling your way through the creative process to create beautiful expressions of your soul. Surrender to the process and let your artwork flow by incorporating simple techniques and allowing the materials to do the work for you. In that space of softening to the process, you will enter a flow state that keeps your practice loose, instinctive, and felt. This is the intention I had as I created my new intuitive art course.

This was just what I was looking for!

Relaxing, enjoyable, no pressure. A particularly great course for an uptight perfectionist watercolorist, like me, to learn to loosen up!

There is so much more to this intuitive style than just the techniques...

 

...and together , inside this courses, we will walk through the entire creative process. Learning to paint, in my philosophy, isn’t just about technical knowledge. It’s also about quieting the mind and feeling your way through. As we let the materials do the work, we learn to let go of our need to control the outcome and surrender to the creative process, allowing our souls to tell their story.

This class is suitable for all levels, so it matters not whether you are a veteran painter or brand new. We will begin with simple basic painting techniques to create a strong foundation for further, more complex, techniques.

 

Inside this watercolor course, you will:

  • Learn the foundational techniques of this style through painting color swatches, circles and stripes.
  • Create simple leaf and flower shapes with the use of brushwork
  • Build interest and beauty within those shapes using color blending and dripping techniques
  • Add depth to your art by overlapping shapes
  • Learn my signature technique of blurring and blending to create ethereal, atmospheric paintings
  • Get comfortable with the techniques and create abstract color swatches, circle and line paintings followed by lots of florals!
  • Explore wet on wet painting techniques
  • Combine all of the techniques to create large scale floral paintings.
  • We will fill up sheets of paper with allover florals and crop the paintings using templates to create abstract floral paintings, cards, and bookmarks.

"I was hesitant at first to take this class, because I wasn't sure that I could produce this type of watercolor, but fell in love with the process after the first few lessons. Stephanie's inspirational teaching has boosted my confidence and I am having so much fun letting go and just painting. I look forward to her next classes."
