This is a ‘learn as you paint’  workshop, and by that I mean you will learn how to use watercolour paints as you paint a picture. So you will have a super painting at the end of the process as well as learning a new skill.

I have painted this a number of times with slight changes, for people, it’s atmospheric, it reminds people of their holidays in warmer climates and it could be anywhere. So why not do that your self?

You will learn how to do simple washes and create a plaster and old stone wall effect, create a realistic window with perspective, deal with glass and reflections and get to grips with colour values.

It’s EASY to follow, stop and start as you wish, relax and enjoy working as and when it suits you and at your own pace.

At any time you can post questions for any advice and also for feedback on your finished painting. 

There are also plenty additional notes, professional tips, and  extra tuition notes which you can download to build you own ‘theory folder’. I will also be adding extra lectures over time. 

  • Why choose one of my courses?

    Because, as a self taught artist I understand how a lot of people feel about their creative work, sometimes anxious, sometimes overwhelmed and often that it’s not ‘good enough’. I will hold your hand as you overcome these fears as I offer a friendly, relaxed and sensitive teaching style.

    I also have years of experience of teaching people of all levels both in person and via the internet.

    Do one of my courses and you will feel as if I am in the room with you every step of the way.

Enjoy your painting, love Nicola
