Let me explain...
Master the Essentials
All the techniques a beginner needs to know.
Watercolour painting can be intimidating – how do you control the paint?
This simple information is the critical step most beginners are missing, which means they become frustrated and give up, having never experienced the relaxation and satisfaction of producing beautiful pieces of art.
We’ll Cover More Than Just the Basics
Build on your foundation and learn important concepts with each successive painting.
I’ll guide you through four hot air balloon paintings step-by-step, each adding a new technique to your growing skillset.
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t painted in years – or ever painted at all! Better Beginnings in Watercolour is suitable for beginners of all levels.
All you need to get started is a watercolour palette, water, a few brushes, paper, plus your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone to view the lessons. That’s it!
There are downloadable and printable PDFs provided for each lesson, so you’ll be fully supported on your journey.

🎨What if I can't draw?
No problem! This course includes easy drawing tips for even the most reluctant sketcher, which will get your paintings off to a terrific start.
🎨What do we paint?
We’ll paint 4 serene hot air balloon scenes to teach you the basics of working from reference photos and a range of other techniques. (Hot air balloons make an ideal beginner subject for drawing and painting.)
After that, you’ll know just how easy and enjoyable it is to paint for relaxation and pleasure.
🎨How much does the course cost?
The course costs US$49, plus you’ll need to invest a little in some supplies if you don’t yet have any paints, paper or brushes, which can all be extremely affordable.
🎨How long can I take to complete the course?
As long as you like! If you feel like you didn’t master the first lesson, repeat it again. The beauty of this course is that you can work at your own pace and revisit the lessons again and again until you feel like you’ve mastered the techniques.
