There can be few watercolour painters today in the UK with the influence of Shirley Trevena R.I. Her style is immediately recognisable and mixes her skills as a colourist with vaulting imagination and style. In this DVD Shirley takes us on a journey through her creative process from how to start a picture from scratch to how to decide when a painting is truly finished.
This DVD is full of wisdom, inspiration and a sheer delight to watch. In The DVD Shirley deals with the all important choice oif paper and introduces us to some exciting new colours from the USA that she is currently using.

Trevena keeps her magic close to her heart. She takes her time chatting to us (which is nice), then spends long time in video trying different papers, then small snippets of painting process are shown only, is it because she paints very slowly? I felt here was very little insight into her painting process in this video Yulia Gaidakova (Glasgow, United Kingdom) on 2 Jun 2014
I love this artist's loose style and her choices of colours are fabulous. She has a very nice voice which doesnt grate and she puts things over extremely well. I have picked up several techniques which I can use but watching her create the most beautiful paintings is enough - even my husband likes watching it and he is no artist.
