Vibrant Orchid







Painting In the Flow Of Watercolor”
“Captivating Cattleya” demonstrates Ann’s
technique for painting on traditional
watercolor paper using: Waterford 140 lb.
cold pressed paper by T. H. Saunders.

Watch Ann demonstrate her sectional, wet-into-wet technique. See how colors are mingled on the surface and blended using the right value and a variety of edges. Observe close up as she uses gravity, water and pigment to create a variety of luminous passages and textures. Her method controls and moves the watercolor to create clean, vibrant color and vividly captures the essence of the subject. Learn how Ann: looks at a subject, chooses what to keep and how she edits unnecessary elements. See how to use enough pigment to achieve deep values and beautiful, glowing darks. Whether a beginner, or a seasoned painter, you will gain many useful ideas from Ann that can help you paint more dynamic watercolors. There is extensive information included about the materials used and how Ann approaches the painting process. Approx. 110 min.

Ann Pember’s explicit guidance by talking through her thought process while taking the
viewer step by step, make this DVD one for beginner or advanced painter. Limited palette, few brushes and easy techniques produce a successful watercolor within a painter’s grasp as well as take some of the apprehension out of the medium. Close-ups followed by distance shots shows us the importance of stepping back regularly to see how the shapes work in the whole picture. It is definitely an encouraging and motivating teaching video to own. I rate this DVD a 5.

HIGHEST QUALITY – by Brenda Beltramo from Tahoe , Nevada

This DVD has tremendous instructional value. Not only do you watch a wonderful artist creating beautiful work, but the filming and production is such high quality you’ll feel like you are in the studio working with her on every step and technique. You’ll be glad you get this one!

WILL THERE BE MORE VIDEO’S? – by Jennifer Nichols

I have the “Orchid” video and just LOVE it! Yours is the best one I have on how to paint
flowers. I love your other flower paintings also and am wondering when and if you’ll be
coming out with another video.
Thanks …. beautiful work!


I want to thank you and Creative Catalyst for producing the “Vibrant Orchid” CD…it is the
absolute best level of quality…the very BEST. The reason I know is because I also just
purchased a video from another artist and it is so out of focus and blurry, not to mention
that the lighting was atrocious and no zooming in close where you could actually see how the watercolor pigment was actually being applied to the paper surface. It is actually worthless. Your work is gorgeous and the style of your presentation is wonderful. I am thrilled with this CD and I hope you and CCP produce another please. Seeing this one
makes me want more, I really feel like I have gained so much knowledge and confidence from this CD, it is so far and above any other I have had before.

Thanks so much,


I just wanted to share with you how fabulous the Ann Pember video that I just completed was. I have purchased so many videos on watercolor that I believe I am an expert. I recently had my teenage daughter sell all my videos on eBay. Most of the videos I purchased were from very well known artists and you would recognize the names. Ann’s video was absolutely perfect and hers is the one I will keep. I loved the way the painting was completed and the camera stayed on every stroke so we could see the complete process. All the written material at the side was perfect along with the view of the palette. This is the most sophisticated video I have seen. I really felt at the completion that I really learned a lot. In the past I have purchased watercolor videos for the same price and they have only been 15 minutes, certainly not 110 minutes. Terrible. I think you did a great job and I hope you produce a lot more videos of Ann’s in the future.
Thank you. SuSan
