In the summer of 2007 I took a great watercolour course with Flemming Jorgensen at the Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts (MISSA). I’ve read that his nickname was ‘Maestro’ and it fits as he conducted you in such a way that he brought out the best in you. This tree painting of mine is an example of a technique he taught with random gesso strokes underneath, then the watercolour and more gesso thoughtfully added on top. There was a freedom of stroke with strong personality that his teaching style evoked and I rediscovered much about myself as an artist in those 5 days at MISSA with Flemming.
