Light in Winter: a profile in Watercolor Artist Magazine

A few months back I was interviewed by Austin K. Williams for Watercolor Artist magazine. It was a real honour for me to have my winter paintings featured in the publication, but the big surprise came when I saw my painting “Shovelling” on the cover. I remember so well the day I painted this. I was just finishing up my drawing (in my cold car) when the caretaker from the church shovelled his way into the scene and I added him in. That’s the wonderful thing about sketching on location, isn’t it? Our memories of the process stay with us for such a long time.

And I’m in great company in this issue of the magazine! Have a look at the profile of Stephanie Bower’s new book, which is part of the same Urban Sketching Handbook series as my book. The magazine is available in stores and online now.

    Shari, so thrilled for you. I discovered your class on Craftsy a while back when I was first starting plein air. You gave me a great kickstart! My painting trips to France and Italy were much better because of your videos.

    Beautiful… cover and paintings of snow. I love how you are able to suggest snow the way you do. ‘Sixth Avenue’ is my absolute favorite ❤
    I know, I don't comment often, but I follow and see your paintings via email and instagram.

    I’m so happy for you Shari and for us, your fans. Your contribution will encourage cold winter sketching. I must admit I quickly scanned to see if the faithful wheelbarrow was included. ☺️
