  • What is included in this painting project?

    This is a quick easy project for beginners. Follow along with me, step by step in real time, from blank page to finished rooster. Once you are done with the first rooster there are some ideas for your next one and a little bonus or two!

  • Is it suitable for beginners?

    Absolutely! 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.

  • What if I can't draw?

    No problem. This project includes the (reusable) line drawing and step by step instructions to transfer that drawing onto your watercolour paper. Then it's just like paint by numbers! (Actually - it's even easier than that, I think)

  • 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.
