Simple elephant paintings with watercolour markers

Learn to do a simple but effective line drawing of an elephant (even if you think you can’t draw)

Turn it into a painting just using water! 

Great for beginners and a quick project for those who are time and or attention poor (it’s not just me is it?)

Class supplies

Simplicity is key! Only very limited supplies are needed - you may already have what you need for this class

  • Watercolour paper (or a sketchbook that can take a light wash)

  • Watercolour markers (I will use tombow dual tips and the Elegant Writer, but any watersoluble pen or marker will do)

  • Pencil for sketching

  • Round brush suitable for watercolour

  • I will also use some water colour paints, but these are optional


  • How many painting projects are included?

    3 full length paintings all in real time, from blank page to finished elephant. Total video time is approximately 120 minutes, but all broken down into manageable pieces.

  • Is it suitable for beginners?

    Yes! All of the videos are fully narrated. I talk a lot (or so I'm told) which means there are lots of tips and guidance at every stage. You can follow me along every step of the way.

  • When do I get access to the class material and for how long?

    The class is self paced. You get immediate (and forever) access to the whole class so you can binge/pace yourself and of course, rewatch at your convenience. You can also speed up or slow down the videos to your liking.
