About This Class

Painting water need no longer be problematic. I'l show you some simple ways of painting still and moving water, waves, waterfalls and more with my easy to follow video tutorials.

Gain the confidence to tackle any water feature whether it be a fountain, a natural pond or lake, a waterfall or waves on a beach.

I have broken the process down to make it as simple and easy easy as possible for you to understand and to be able to recreate similar effects.

There are no complete paintings just demonstrations of different movements and situations. Have a go and experiment further to explore and learn more about the subject.

I have only used watercolour paints, so you need to use the white of the paper, it's a good way to help you to learn how to leave some paper without paint.

Here's a bit about me.
