She taught class participants how to make this medium less temperamental by introducing them to the principals and elements of design as well as to the art of information drawing and how to make a colour sketch.
She has won over 70 awards for her unusual seascapes, landscapes and travel sketches which are displayed in banks, hotels and corporate institutions as well as countless private homes all over the world. Visit her website at www.islandwatercolors.com for a sample of her beautiful work.An inspiring and caring teacher, Mrs. Bowyer has conducted watercolour workshops and taught private classes in Europe, the USA and The Bahamas. Her beautiful wet-on-wet watercolors of Bahamian scenes are evidence of the artist's deep appreciation of these islands, their emerald seas and vibrant tropical colours.
The students of her recent workshop at Garden of the Groves immersed themselves in the art of learning this fascinating way of painting for three full days. They felt fortunate to have been taught by the best and several pieces were entered in the Garden's Art Show that weekend.
