Ambassador of the Week: Wendy Soneson

"Salt" I love painting in cafes in the Bay Area. You can find subjects everywhere including simple things like salt.

Meet Wendy Soneson, this week’s top American Watercolor Weekly Ambassador!

“Bridge 27” I have painted the Golden Gate Bridge dozens of times now, and run workshops at Fort Baker for student to paint this famous bridge.


“I have been painting and teaching watercolors for 45 years, the last years in the Bay Area after many years in Boston,” says Wendy. “I was watercolor artist in resident at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston for the John Singer Sargent watercolor show, and have had many shows, most recently at Oakland City Hall in California.”


“Ocean” There are so many ways to paint water, and here I have used several tricks such as scratching, opaque white, and resist. I never get tired of water as a subject.
