My Creative Journey
I started my blog "Bev Morgan Art Adventures", in 2011 and when I
reflect back 7 years, I can honestly say that my art has taken me to
places never imagined and met new friends along the way.
When starting an art career, I would recommend connecting with
established artists. Back in November 2006, I stepped out my comfort
zone and joined a group of 6 artists creating a local artist group
"Saugeen Artists". We exhibited and sold our art together as a group.
This provided me with a support network and resources available in a new
I have travelled with other artists to learn and grow as a plein-air painter to Italy, France and Portugal.
Initially, I taught watercolours to friends, and as the years past, the
classes from my Hanover studio expanded to art conventions,
Southampton Art School, campgrounds, and cruise ships. My cruise ships adventures have led me to travels to England, Germany, USA, Costa Rica, Eastern Caribbean and Columbia. Eight of my workshops are now on-line and currently have students from 17 countries enrolled. CLICK HERE TO VISIT COURSES ON-LINE
I have tried a variety of art mediums, through the years, but my art journey always returned back to watercolours and hopes that anyone who views my paintings can experience the excitement and vision that I had creating them. As an artist, teacher and mentor, I will continue to grow, explore, experiment and learn through my own experiences and from my students. When I started this journey, I would not have fathom the direction that my life has taken, just through my ART!
So happy to return from my second excursion teaching watercolours to passengers on the Queen Mary 2! The cruise ship left the Brooklyn Cruise terminal November 26th for an Eastern Caribbean voyage and returned December 8th.
The watercolour classes began with colour theory and information about paints, paper and brushes. Many techniques were introduced each day and the passengers finished some wonderful bookmarks, poppies, negative painting, pelican and northern lights.
The highlight of this cruise was an Art Exhibition of all the great watercolours at the end of the cruise. For beginner artists, I was so pleased with everyone's art work!
