After a short break at the end of February we will resume our travels by flying to New Zealand! From March 4th to April 15th we will explore the natural wonders of this incredible country – the wild rivers, mountain ranges and grassy fields of “Middle Earth”. The rest is the same re. weekly contour drawing, colour study and skill practice. You will be emailed the sketch for each class painting the week before – you can print it, copy it, or trace it. To the contour drawing and colour study at the beginning of each class, Barb is adding a “watercolour skill” segment where you will practice a technique together. Zoom classes on Mondays at three times with flexibility between. Beginners welcome.

March 4 – April 15 (no class April 1st Easter Monday)


Zoom classroom link and password will be provided through email.

Barbara Hotson

Barbara Hotson (Honours BA, MA) lives and paints at Applegate Farm near Walters Falls. She has been painting exclusively in Watercolour for twenty years. Endlessly intrigued and challenged by the interaction of water and pigment on paper or watercolour canvas she has resisted the sirens’ call to experiment in other mediums.

She early on gravitated to painting in series and developed a sub- text for each. Her Country Roads Series depicts the landscapes of Southwestern Ontario; the culture and heritage they represent. The Beaches Series celebrates her love the water and the magic of sand and sun.; how the image of a beach brings out the child in all of us. The Gates Series is about the Transitions in our lives; how we don’t get to see what is on the other side until we pass through the gate.

Barb participates in the Autumn Leaves Studio Tour, The Escarpment Tour and teaches at Artbarn School in Toronto. Her work has been described as “magical and luminous” and her students describe her teaching as “opening our eyes to possibilities”. She enjoys doing commissions and working with a client to create something unique and special.
