Welcome to Painted Hill Studio, featuring artwork by Renée (Ré) St. Peter, NWWS.
Thank you for your interest in my art. While my main subject is horses, you’ll also find lots of landscapes; portraits of people, pets, rust and whatever else catches my eye. Recently, I’ve been painting on textured canvas. Many pieces are varnished, which eliminates the need for glass.
Most of my work is done in watercolor, but I’m also trying to get more practice in the sketchbook. Check out my blog for sketches, finished paintings, work-in-progress shots, “art shares,” and other bits of interest.
I’m now an instructor at Cloud 9 Art School! Starting in July I’ll be teaching 1-day workshops as well as ongoing classes at this convenient location in Bothell, Washington. The Thursday evening classes will start in September with a “Watercolor Refresh” series aimed at answering the questions you didn’t know you should ask in your beginner watercolor classes! Visit the Cloud 9 website for more info on the school, and visit my Classes page to register.
Spring is in the air, which means Snoqualmie Falls, a local attraction, will be booming! If you visit, be sure to continue your trip another mile east into the little town of Snoqualmie. Check out the historic trains, stop for a post-falls lunch or coffee, and drop by the Sno-Valley Art Gallery. In addition to paintings, jewelry, glasswork and more by Valley artists, this selection of my paintings will be up until May 14…
A Milestone Reached The excitement of achieving Signature status in the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS) has been joined by that of gallery representation! Parklane features the work of 40 local artists working in a wide range of media and styles. I am delighted to be a member of the Parklane Gallery family. Visit Parklane’s website.
