Hi! I'm Rebecca Rhodes, watercolor artist and teacher in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.

My goal is to empower, encourage, and equip - to help you learn to paint detailed, realistic subjects in watercolor so you can use these techniques to develop your own unique style!

Before becoming a full-time artist, I enjoyed a 27-year career as a public school Music Educator. In 2015, I retired from teaching to focus on painting and founded this online school in 2017. I love to teach and hope that you find these courses enjoyable and helpful. Always feel free to contact me if you have questions or suggestions.

Where do I post my paintings?

When can I get started?

You an get started right now! Choose a time line that works best for you.

What if I can’t commit to painting and posting an eye a day ? Can I still join the challenge? Is it o.k. to drop in and out?

Yes! Do what you can. It's ok to miss some days. The only "rule" is to have fun!

What if I can't Keep Up?

It's o.k. if you can't create 1 painting a day. Do it daily or every other day, or once a week. Whatever you decide, it will help you to be consistent. It’s about building your skills and forming positive habits, so the more consistent, the better. If you can do it every day, that’s the best. At first, it may seem awkward. It takes time to get in the rhythm, but eventually it will become part of your day. Repetition will build muscle memory and by the end of the challenge, you will be an ace at painting noses!

Where Can I Find Reference Photos?

These are my three favorite sites that offer reference photos in the public domain. I recommend that you read the Terms of Use for each site before downloading photos.

Can I Sell or Exhibit my Painted Images from the Tutorials?

The tutorials are designed to teach you the technique to develop your skills, and should make up a portfolio for your own records. Copyright of the actual course images remain with Rebecca Rhodes, therefore the paintings should not be exhibited, sold, or reproduced as original work by the student without written consent; they can, however, be gifted to friends or family and should be labelled in the title as taken from a Rebecca Rhodes tutorial.

Should you find similar subjects, live or from photographs, you can use the techniques shown in the course to create an original piece for exhibition sale or reproduction. Following these guidelines should avoid any accusation of breach of copyright by the gallery or art exhibition curator.

It is advised that painters always credit Rebecca Rhodes when sharing any work derived from this site. See "Terms of Purchase" for more information.
