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 community.
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!

Queen Mary 2 Watercolour Workshops a Success!

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!
Here are some pictures of our Art Exhibition on the Queen Mary 2:

"Paisley Bridge" painting by Bev Morgan
Accepted as one of the featured Artists for 2018 Art Map Calendar
The story behind the painting....
 On a Canoe trip down the Saugeen River a few years ago, I quickly photographed our landing at the Paisley Bridge. There were already two canoes landed and a few still paddling behind me.
This inspired my watercolour and batik painting which was done on rice paper.
When I was asked how this was created, my answer was not a simple one. Rice paper does not take watercolours too well, so I used around 12 layers of wax (alternating watercolours and melted wax) till it was covered. Then the painting was crumpled carefully, allowing the wax to fall off. Wherever the wax fell, then a dark wash was applied. All the wax is then taken off, and now I finish the painting with darker washes of paint. Lots of time and effort, but always happy with the results!!
