The point of this course is to encourage you to use your imagination to make your paintings stand out. We will use colors other than what you find in the landscape, and I will show you how to create textures for more interest. If you struggle to paint loosely in watercolor this course is for you. With these easy-to-follow steps you can create watercolors that are unique.
Work at your own pace with unlimited access at anytime.
The course includes
- Painting wet-in-wet
- Learning the importance of good composition
- Using household materials to create textures in your watercolor.
- How to use acrylic ink for special effects.
You will also have the ability to upload a photo of your finished artwork if you would like feedback on your watercolor.
You will have lifetime access to this course! I want you to be able to review the content over and over again until you absorb the techniques used to create your very own successful watercolor. You'll find that each time you review the course you'll remember something new that will help improve your painting skills.
The luminosity of watercolors is what fascinates and draws me to this medium. I like creating textures and continually try to stretch the boundaries of watercolor. I experiment with materials and media to get the results I want.
I studied painting at the Rhodesian School of Art in Zimbabwe and for four years in California with master watercolorist, Jerry Stitt, AWS.
Frequently Asked Questions
Jean explains all the steps very well and gives good, practical tips. i love the end result of her painting and will sign up for more of her classes.
As with the 'Water colour techniques' course, this one too was wonderfully instructive. I particularly appreciated the instructor's 'can do' attitude and approach, which as a novice I found highly motivating, inspiring and encouraging. Of greatest value and learning for me, however, was the subtle and practical demonstration of using one's intuition in deciding 'right' tone, colour, composition, value and texture. I loved (and would chuckle to myself) each time the instructor reflected 'Yes. I like that' or 'Be careful. Dont over do it', etc. These were significant 'intuition points' (some might call them 'choice or decision points') which i found very helpful. The instructor's 'thinking out aloud' provided a valuable learning opportunity apropos guiding and gauging my own judgements about and the development of a painting. Thank you so very much once again!
