Watercolour Classes with Greg Maude

A watercolourist for the past twenty years, Gregory Maude has refined his style of watercolour to the point that his muted shades of colour begin to blend together, forming interesting negative and positive shapes. Greg has been a member of several Ontario art associations and has taught at the Oshawa Art Association and Whitby Arts Inc. He was awarded the “Samac Painter of the Year” award, becoming the fifth member of a select group of artists known as the OAA-Samac Painters. You can see his work at: http://www.facebook.com/gregorymaudefineart
