Some of the comments Kendra has received from students on past workshops were:
"You're one of the best instructor's I've ever had - You're a natural!!"
"Kendra your instruction was right on. You're enthusiastic, inspiring, & know how to share your passion. Thank you!!"

How to Paint Carrot People in Watercolour
I was taught how to paint people by starting with a carrot shape and I've used it ever since. Here I am demonstrating how to paint carrot people in watercolour, passing on what I learned.
Just start with a carrot shape and then add a head and it's up to you if you want to add arms or elbows. At the end I show some paintings where I included "carrot people" in my compositions.
How to Paint Birch Trees in Watercolour
I thought it would be fun to give you a peek into an actual lesson where I taught my students how to paint birch trees in watercolour, step by step. The original class was really long so I skipped ahead to the birch tree part just for you. Let me know in the comments if you have any questions. Thanks for watching!

How to Paint Water Droplets in Watercolour
In this video tutorial I demonstrate how to paint water droplets in watercolour in 3 easy steps.
To paint a water droplet you need three things: 1. A highlight on the side the light is shining on. 2. A shadow inside the droplet on the side the light is shining on. This is counter intuitive but it is caused by the refraction of light through the water. 3. A cast shadow behind the droplet away from the light source.

Kendra has taught watercolour workshops in Elkford, Fernie, Kelowna, Revelstoke, Sparwood, and Sun Peaks, BC.
"When I am teaching watercolours, I tell my students that there is no such thing as mistakes; only techniques that may better be used somewhere else. Sometimes the unexpected can become the best part of a painting. It's important to be able to let go and let the paint blend into the paper as it will. You get beautiful, luminescent results when you let the paint do its thing."
