About This Class

Welcome 'How To Create Perfect Washes With Watercolor'

Enhance your creativity and follow Ron as he designs a simple landscape for you to paint.

Whether you've never painted before or are looking to improve your skills, this course will teach you the essential watercolor wash techniques I've learned as a professional landscape artist. 

I've created, exhibited, and sold paintings for 30 years and run an Art School in Nelson BC. In this first course, you'll learn the "No Drips no Slips" English Watercolor Wash Technique. I use this exact technique in my studio and in the field. 

You don't need any previous experience to benefit from this course. I'll teach you the technique with simple, visual instructions. 

  • How to set up a simple drawing 
  • Simple techniques that get you painting fast 
  • Bring light and depth with the true 'English Wash Style'

I've used these exact techniques to create the watercolors below.

First rate explanation and demonstration of a first rate process. Worthwhile class for anyone interested in painting, watercolor or other.
This was my favorite online painting class, ever! So well explained and simplified enough to feel very approachable. It is charming how the instructor gets genuinely excited when his processes come together. The best teachers are passionate, and talented at conveying the techniques, and that is what your have here. I love watercolors and feel like this class has made it feel brand new! Thank you for an excellent class.
I have enjoyed the course. I learn how to mix and use water paint properly. I am now practicing what I have learnt. I would recommend this course to my friends and family whom are interesting and want to learn more about water paint. It is an excellent course.

Doing Drawing is a perfect success plan for the beginner and the experienced artist, designer, digital doodler, watercolorist, and anyone who wants to really learn what you do when you draw.. This is the first of five videos that will bring you to a much higher level of drawing competence and creativity.

Join me for a creative experience that will get some started and others re-booted. You have never approached drawing like this...and you will never draw the same after you start.
