Who is this online course for?
This is a six module online course for anyone who wants to reclaim their creativity and a sense of calm. It's perfectly suited to a complete beginner in watercolor, with flowers being a perfect simple and joyful introduction subject to watercolor painting...
I'll guide you through every step of each lesson on video, providing you with drawing templates for the more detailed modules. I'll also show you how to fix mistakes along the way. Just set up and paint along with me... A wonderful kind of meditation for those (like myself) who find a sense of calm more easily through creativity than sitting in the lotus position!

How much do the materials cost to do the course?
In general here are my suggestions regarding supplies:
MATERIALS: If you are a complete beginner I would suggest that you purchase the basic versions of : A set of watercolour tubes, ('Reeves' is a good example) an A4 book of watercolour 300gsm textured paper. And a selection of around 4 brushes.
Already an artist: You may already have some of the supplies on the list. If not you might invest in the level up from basic on all of the items above. I use paint brand Winsor and Newton (both tube paint and pan palette). A brand worth investing in if move to/ are already at the next level in painting in watercolor.
