My name is Olga Peregood. I paint in watercolor, share my discoveries and make video tutorials when I overwhelmed by creative ideas and discoveries in watercolor and I'm already full of requests from my students.
I paint to escape winter, rainy days, I have magical feeling, cozy space, where all problems are washed away. Loose style was so difficult to approach, but once I achieved it, I deserve such freedom. Having this experience every day is like... Imagine you have trump card wherever you go, no matter what happens you have something magic tool in a pocket. There is something magical in a corner of your smile, you feel energized, happy, or peaceful. You bring that sense of freedom, peace, joy into your day.
Even in bad days, knowing you back to painting soon makes such a difference than facing difficulties been naked.

Hi, my name is Olga. I am professional artist and watercolor addict from Ontario, Canada.
Today my passion for watercolor led me to teaching online to share my new art adventures and discoveries among wonderful artists.
In my watercolor painting demonstrations I try to provide a joy, happy energy which comes while I move my brush. I don't teach, I share what works for me. I skip explanations and checklists. People are tired of instructions. We come here to play, to connect and to interact.
I believe my follower find her way by herself. The only thing I can give is to share my enthusiasm.
I titled my Virtual Class "lazywonderbrush" because of my style of painting. I'm a "lazy" artist and learn to adapt during each stage while panting and to use watercolor techniques to gain "wonderful" results with my "brush"!
Lovely Amazing Artist Teacher You are Olga! Practice,Practice and Practice!!!

I have only just started using them as an adult. When I was a child, a wonderful artist befriended me after her son 'caught' me admiring daffodils outside her house. This led to a wonderful relationship and beautiful memories of painting with her in her studio every Saturday morning. I used to paint a lot of fairies and flowers at that point. Sadly, we later moved away and lost contact with her as I grew older.
Just recently I went with my husband to stay with his family in the Lake District, and went along to an art class with my sister-in-law. She re-introduced me to painting with watercolours, using her professional colours. I just LOVED it, and as a result, my son has bought me a starter kit for Christmas. I am SO excited and can't wait to start. I found you on Youtube, and so here I am!
Your Videos Are Magical. The Guided Looseness of Your Style Communicates the Beauty of the Life You Open Yourself to See.

You Inspire Me to Try Your Method of Painting

I like your expression. I trust my hand and my imagination and the freedom you have because you're not replicating, but suggesting and allowing the viewer to fill in some areas with their own imagination. Very inspiring.

You have a lovely, gentle way of teaching. You are very accomplished at leading the learner from the beginning details and following through to the end which many artists do not do in their lessons. Continue to teach and share your painting style...You empower people to continue painting. Your style appeals to me because I have difficulty being a realistic painter which was the basics of my learning to paint and very valuable but you give the viewing artist permission to be free to develop their own style and paint their own vision. Paint on and empower!!!

My collection of art materials is like a treasure. I always search for something new in a market, review different watercolors by different manufactures. Here is my materials list updated.
