An Afternoon Workshop!

Terry Jarvis is one of Australia’s exceptional Watercolour Artists. His passion for his craft and his love for the wonderful medium of Watercolour is revealed through his varied subject matter ranging from magnificent Australian scenes, to paintings of his travels which include The Greek Islands, Tuscany – Italy, Finland, Northern Ireland, Sweden, France, etc.

He is a much sought after Tutor across the Globe in Watercolour. He is a regular Tutor across Australia each year, his Exhibitions are always a great success, and he exhibits in most capital Cities across the Nation.

He is an award winner in his chosen field and his work hangs in collections in Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Japan, the UK, U.S.A., Finland, Northern Ireland, Italy, and many other Countries around the World.

 He has written Feature articles for Australian Artist Magazine, The Artist Magazine – U.K., and is a featured Artist in 2 books, “The New Encyclopedia of Watercolour Techniques”, and “Watercolour Secrets”, both London Publications.

Terry conducts International Painting Tours for many organizations each year and Tutors many tours in Greek Islands/Tuscany/ In the footsteps of Monet tour in France/The U.K. and was part of an exceptional exhibition in Dalian, China, showcasing some of the best work of Australian Watercolour Artists.

Terry Loves the challenges that every Watercolour brings, to catch the light, to capture that special moment in time, to discover that Watercolour is forever your master in all of its nuances, its edges, its flow across a page that delights the heart.

It’s like writing a book, visually, without the words.

Tutoring and sharing the delights of the watercolour  medium is only secondary to creating my own work.

It will always be a privilege to paint with this wonderful medium.
