About the Tutor: Rhonda was introduced to watercolours some 20 years ago and has been on the journey it brings since. She still gets a few surprises with the medium and is constantly on the look out for new subjects. Currently Rhonda is semi-retired and wishes to pass on the love of watercolour to others. She loves bright happy colours and tends to work with transparent colours more. Rhonda is also a happy camper and loves to travel with her husband around Australia. She loves Australia’s seascapes, natural bush and flowers. Rhonda exhibits in a variety of exhibitions all year. All subjects are of interest and finding the light is always on her mind What to Bring: 2 sheets of watercolour paper Saunders Rough 300gsm – Note – it is important to buy good quality Watercolour paper as the poor quality paper will leave students feeling frustrated when learning the techniques.
