About This Class

I consider these the most valuable  lessons you will learn when painting with watercolours.  See your work transformed.

This course is a MUST for anyone interested in improving their watercolour paintings.

* An absolute beginner? This will give to some basic guidelines to create solid foundations to help you get into good habits right from the start.

* Already painting but think your pictures lack 'something?' This might be just what you're looking for to lift the standard of your work and make your paintings stand out from the rest. It's easy to get in a rut and use the same methods time after time. This course will help you step outside your comfort zone.

This concise course will clearly define FIVE areas that will really change the quality of your work. My experience shows me that If you go through this mental 'check list' every time you work on a painting, you will see some dramatic improvements .

Look over my shoulder as I take you through each of these crucial elements in watercolour painting. Each lecture is a complete video demonstration with full supporting notes and resources where required.

I am here to help you build your confidence and knowledge so you can get as much as you can from this rewarding pass time.

Enjoy your painting, Nicola
