In my Oil, Acrylic and Watercolor painting tutorials I record where I find inspiration, preliminary sketches and then move into different forms and ideas. I present my own finished piece of artwork as inspiration.

What I am Working on Now

What I am Working on Now

I want to give the viewer of my Art the feeling of the process and an understanding of how paintings come together. As a teacher, I want to teach to art enthusiasts who want to learn how to paint.

Lesson plans, tutorials and painting tips and techniques are designed to teach to students and novice painters. The basic equipment artists need are outlined as well as various painting techniques artists use to create successful paintings. I have included the principals of art and design in lessons and tutorials to encourage artistic development.

I am developing a new digital art series designed for products called Le Monde. We have a unique culture in Montreal and I am exploring it with my street scene paintings.

  1. hello I am a student reporter from RH king academy, I was wondering if you would allow me to interview you for my school newspaper on a current art movement.

  2. I received a watercolours kit for christmas 2014. What? Me paint pictures? Never in my life……so I signed up for a community wc class to colour-up the winter drearies (and it was less than a block from my home). I now forego housework and other life responsibilities (just those of the tedium/humdrum/boredom type) to paint, think about painting, read about and research painting and art. I “do” watercolours but am jazzed about how they work, all about colour, composition, inspiration along with the howzits and whozits of it all. Today I found you, Elizabeth Reoch, artist and teacher. Thank you for sharing this delightful collection of enriching info-nuggets. I read it all, and am saving the tutorials for as soon as I complete the color mixing chart of all my paint colours. I may not be doing any vacuuming or dusting today. Regards!

    • It makes me happy to know my tutorials gave you the practical information you needed. I try to think of the questions I have been asked by students and put the answers out on the internet. It surprises me how little practical painting advice is available and I wanted to give teachers who are struggling to teach their art classes a resource, as well as for novices like yourself who just want to know which brushes to use and how to mix colours.
      Thanks for the feedback

  3. I have a painting in black case of yrs want to no if is yrs n if its worth anything?

  4. Hi Elizabeth, first of all I really enjoy your paintings… Congrants.

    My name is Marcos Souza Jr. and I am from Sao Paulo, Brazil. I am studying linguistics with focus in Portuguese and English Major. As of now I am required to do a project on the difference between on non-textual verbs. I have chosen to do a paper on the difference between Linear and Pictorial Art Compositions. I have been browsing through you collections of art and I was wondering if could use of your pictorial art compositions. And also, I would like a quote from you as an artist.

    Thank you

  5. Dear Elizabeth,

I am a member of paint club, we had many exhibitions and planairs. I will wait your answer, best regards


  6. This page of info holds so much to be true. I too have been contemplating what art movement are we in today 2016. Searching for the answer I had to reread about other movements just to find how society acts together. I came up short of what the art movement is to be today. Looking at it a little deeper art has evolved to moving, speaking, etc. for example “the black lives matter,” strikes, groups of people protesting against whatever. Nowadays people want to be heard not seen. Everyone has something to say…. There’s not a lot of creativity left… People want to be active and popular with bodies. Painters who create Van Gogh pieces or Picasso pieces etc. are trapped in the “today movement.”

  7. Fantastic site you have here but I was wanting to know
    if you knew of any user discussion forums that
    cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get opinions from other experienced
    individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Appreciate it!
