    Hi Shirley,
    Love the vibrant colour, design, line and texture in your work! Especially, your dvd which I borrowed from my local library, on breaking the rules with watercolour with Vivaldi music, which I had not previously noticed as I enjoy Vivald’s ‘Four Seasons’. Very professional camera work in the dvd, and I then, bought your book that matches the dvd.

    I found the painting video very therapeutic and encouraging and great inspiration for my own watercolour and mixed media and am looking forward to seeing more of your work on camera!

  2. I really LOVE Shirley Travena’s artwork. Especially how she allows us new freedom to explore watercolour in our own way, to be guided by our own intuition … not be stuck in rigid old rules … and thus bring us all great JOY.

    A big thank you Shirley and I truly hope you will continue giving us more DVD’s and books showing us more ideas and great tips.

    Warmest wishes from

  4. Hello Shirley and congratulations! I have admired your work for years and have tried to come to one of your workshops but unfortunately left it too late! I have your copies if your books and hope to buy a DVD also. I have worked with oil paints for many years but recently becoming more excited about the challenges of watercolour.

    I’m travelling down from york on Friday 29th in order to see your demonstration on Saturday . I understand I cannot book a ticket but I’m so keen to see you and your work -I think I’ll get to the gallery first thing on Saturday morning !! Looking forward to seeing you. Mandi Grant

    1. Hi Carol. Shirley will be starting her demonstration at 2pm and finishing at 5pm with some breaks. It’s very informal so I can’t say exactly when she will be taking her breaks but whatever time you come I’m sure you won’t have to wait long to see Shirley demonstrate. Mick
