About This Class



Here's a fun project for you to relax over the weekend or on days you want to stay indoors with a hot drink and some entertainment.

What will you learn?

In this course, we will look at how to be inspired to doodle houses/homes as a way of relaxing.  Throughout the course you will be encouraged to look out for inspiration to just pick up that pen and start making fearless, bold drawings across your sketchbook. 

I will be working in a line and wash technique using a dip pen, indian ink and vibrant watercolours! If you are new to this medium, I have also included a practise session where you can warm up. 

If you are not keen on this medium, you can also use any medium you like. 

Who is this course for?

This course is great for anyone who loves to doodle, keep a sketchbook and enjoy spending time creating what you love. 

You do not have to rush through the course or finish it the same day. You also do not need to paint along. Sometimes, I could provide you with a dose of inspiration for you to start doodling, which you can do in your own style.

This course is best if you break it up into small projects that you are able to spend about 15-20 minutes at a time. 

Suggested Materials

  • Sketchbook (at least 140 gsm )
  • dip pen/mapping pen/ micro tip/ ball point/ fountain pen
  • Indian ink/ ink to use with dip pen or mapping pen (waterproof)
  • Watercolour paint
  • 1 round pointed brush ( size 8/10 or mop brush size 0)
  • 1 Jar of water
  • Tissue/ Kitchen towel to lift off or mop up extra paint
  • any photographs of houses or building that you wish to doddle.

Suzanne Abraham



Hello, I'm Suzanne. I am an artist and I love to inspire people to paint! My favourite medium is watercolour and ink and I have been painting with it ever since I can remember! I did my post graduation in Fine art and I have a degree in History of drawing and painting, that has given me a strong base. 

My life as a full time mother to 2 very young kids is challenging. However, I have considered it as a blessing in disguise; allowing me to spend some time painting while my children sleep/ rest. I also spend time painting with them and this has given me a lot of confidence to teach drawing and painting to children. I also conduct workshops for adults online and in my local area.

I Hope to inspire more people to paint and discover their hidden talents!
