About This Class

Loosen up your watercolour painting style and learn how to create a spontaneous painting, quickly and easily. Put aside your expectation and go with the flow.

Lots of people ask me to demonstrate how to paint poppies. So here is a painting process to show you how to watercolour paint a field of poppies easily.

Learn how to use the masking fluid as your sketching tool instead of a pencil, paint freely and intuitively, with plenty of water and colour and with a big brush. Learn how to let go of control  as you relax and let the watercolour paint and water work their magic. By working in this way you will develop a style that will be more original and eye catching, bringing freshness and drama to you watercolour paintings 

Follow me as I demonstrate how to work in stages and also how to correct mistakes. It happens to the best of us ! 

What's most important is to enjoy your painting.

Below is my finished painting, your's will be different, make sure you share it.
