Mike Kowalski Watercolour Wild; learning when to tame it and when to let it be free!

Mike Kowalski is delighted to offer a new exciting watercolour workshop, at Fay Boyd’s Fine Art School. We will begin by asking is watercolour all about control, or is it? To my mind watercolour pigments, more than any other painting medium, have live’s of their own. Each pigment has its own distinct personality.

My classes are filled with insight and a good dose of humour. Painting is much better accomplished in a stress-free and fun environment.

I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember. Growing up in California as one of five boys, if I wasn’t building a wooden pirate ship with my brothers I was probably in the backyard drawing. I started entering art shows as a teen and eventually earned a BFA from Utah State University. Raised in California and eventually calling Marrowstone Island, WA home for many years. Since 2012 I have lived in Melbourne, Australia with my partner Lynn, travelling to the USA often to paint, visit friends and family and most importantly my four children.
