We will use watercolor to create our paintings, using simple techniques to create these beautiful scenes.

Tree on a Snowy Night - we’ll use a large brush to apply the night colors, lift paint with paper towel to create the trees, and splatter paint for the snow.

Landscape with a Bridge & Holiday Wreath - after applying puddles of paint to the paper we'll use straws to blow the paint - mixing it on the paper. When the colors are dry we'll use black and white paint to finish the painting.

April M Rimpo has been involved in art to some degree her whole life. Her father and grandfather both painted so her inclination to draw came naturally. In her early twenties she took classes from a local artist, which led to Rimpo’s first exhibit. At the exhibition she was approached by an art material manufacturer representative, who offered to purchase her painting to use in an ad for their materials. Despite the positive feedback, Rimpo knew she was not ready and has continued to attend local classes plus over 1000 hours of workshops from nationally and internationally known artists. She has been selected in over 50 International and National watercolor and acrylic exhibitions and has received awards in both local and national shows. She has been accepted as a Signature Artist is six watercolor organizations, the International Society of Acrylic painters, and the International Society of Experimental Artists. She has seven paintings published in North Light Books: five paintings in Best of Acrylic and two in Best of Watercolor books. See more of her artwork on her website, www.AMRart.org.
