Course Description

  • In this course I will show you how to sketch an impression of the chosen subject which will, with practice, evolve into a style completely your own. I will then show you how to add watercolour in a way that will brighten and invigorate the drawing, resulting in a sketch of which to be proud.

  • I have included downloads of some of the pictures I am going to show you and you will be able to create your own copy alongside me.

  • My intention is to show that with just three colours, one brush and a sketch book you will be able to take these anywhere and achieve a successful impression of any subject you choose.

  • The paintings I have shown are of Cornwall, the Cotswolds and a National Trust house in Wiltshire.

  • I hope that after you have completed this course you will be inspired to continue your artistic endeavours and to continue to challenge yourself.

  • The resources provided for this course consist of a list of materials required; a list of the watercolours required; a recommended list of brushes; drawing showing perspective; a colour wheel and a drawing to show the methodology for copying a drawing in readiness for painting.

  • You are encouraged to forward any questions or queries that you may have with the course.

  • You will be able to continue learning this medium through my other courses, as they become available on Udemy.

  • I now have a course on painting boats; pencil drawing; and watercolour painting all available now.
