Course Description

Hello! I am Wendy Framst. Welcome to Watercolours with Confidence.

If you have always thought watercolours were unpredictable and difficult to control then this is the course for you. I take out the mystery and show you very simply how watercolours behave with water on the paper.

I demonstrate through simple exercises how watercolours can be a fun, wholesome and satisfying way of painting.

At your own pace, you will gain confidence by developing an understanding of the medium through very simple to gradually complex projects and activities. Lessons are augmented by your choice of public or private feedback on the assignments you submit.

In this watercolour course packed with over 10 hours of insights, tips and tricks, and valuable content you will be introduced in a step by step methodical way to watercolour materials, colour theory, techniques and methods used in painting with watercolours. This course is perfect to help you explore the medium at your own pace!

You will gain confidence through learning how common mistakes are made. You will learn how to fix them through our troubleshooting section, gaining confidence in using your tools effectively by doing easy activities and fun projects.

You will create projects that will inspire you to start experimenting yourself in no time at all.

You will learn which materials to get as well as some of the optional tools you can collect to make some fun effects. We also touch on how to keep costs low and quality high.

After being introduced to materials, you will be guided through how to paint a smooth wash and a variety of other mark making techniques. After the comprehensive introduction you will be guided through progressively more complex projects.

Each project builds on skills you were introduced to earlier and no steps are cut out.

Some of the later projects are a little larger and more complex, but include guidance about how to build up your skills until you are more comfortable with tackling a larger subject.
