About This Class

Welcome to Watercolour Workout: 14 Days of Drills to Advance Your Skills.

--------->  You may be painting every day, but are you really practicing?

Improvement is not automatic without a plan. I have designed this class to keep you growing and building skill to skill over 14 days.

Your brush is an instrument with a wide range of marks and expression. Whatever kind of art you create, whether it is surface pattern design, illustration, cartoon manga, lettering, or abstract fine art or figurative, the way you handle your brush and the way it makes contact with a surface requires deliberate practice. To get the most out of it, you gotta get focussed.

We’ll start by measuring where you are now, then tackle specific marks and pull them together into drills that are fun, challenging, and designed to improve your painting fast. There is a process to this practice and it works for everyone, even if you want to stay loose.

--------->  PRACTICE MAKES PROGRESS

• If you have ever felt frustrated with your abilities while painting or you feel your marks are broken, sketchy, or look timid - this class is for you.

• If you are confident in what you want but can’t seem to make it right - this class is for you.

• If you want to feel less stress when painting and would rather focus on the joy of it - this class is for you.

This class is filled with drills and advice to build your skills.

In 14 days you will be a better painter.
Heck, you’ll improve after day one, so get yourself a tasty beverage and let’s get started.
