Some of the best ways to explore and learn about how watercolour works are to complete a series of studies. These studies can be kept and referred to anytime you want to create an effect or try and redeem something you may not be happy with. Then, there are times you want to have those “happy accidents” and would like to be able to recreate them for a part of your painting. These six practices will help you remember and achieve some wonderful effects with watercolour. Suitable for those who wish to try a new medium and those who want to explore further.
Sonia Mocnik is inspired by her surroundings, from cityscapes to the great outdoors. Vancouver born, she has always enjoyed creating art. She paints with the colours that move her from an urban scene to nature’s blooms. The energy of each captured moment comes back through brushing watercolour onto paper. Sonia is self-taught and has furthered her skills through art instruction with the Federation of Canadian Artists Foundations Program, as well as other art courses in Canada and Mexico.
Plein Air and urban sketching are some of her favourite activities in which she has won awards. She is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and a member of the International Watercolour Society of Canada. Sonia teaches watercolour classes through the West Vancouver Community Centre and other venues. Her work can be found in private collections in Canada and internationally.
