About This Class

In this class I will give you some ideas of how to get you materials and equipment together making it easy to sketch and paint on the go.

This type of 'pen and wash' drawing and painting, is a simple way to get ideas, memories and other little illustrations down in a sketchbook, quickly and in a fun style. This playful approach gives you a 'feel good' factor with no expectations. It is NOT a learn how to draw  and paint course.

If the thought of learning to paint with watercolour paints is overwhelming, this could be a way to break you in gently, to see how you like working with this medium in a relaxed way.

Here I simply give you a 'how to get started' approach.' It is a simple and brief course for you to take what you want to make holiday memories or perhaps illustrating thoughts through a challenging period in life in your journal.

Here's a bit about me.
