What started as a tiny idea in the middle of the night, as become a project that I am really pleased with and also get so much enjoyment out of.
Having read some of John Ruskin’s diaries which he wrote while living in the Lake District, about students who took part in his correspondence course, I thought it would be a fantastic idea to do something similar but with the powers of the internet. So I set up the ‘Online Watercolour Course’ this is designed for anybody who would like to learn some techniques in watercolour painting, while following in depth step by step projects. There are six project in each course and each one is a landscape scene. Some are of the Lake District, which is ideal to paint in Watercolours and lends itself to this wonderful medium.
The first project is a easy tonal painting of Derwentwater from this we go to Blea Tarn in the Langdales and Windermere. ‘On the rocks’ is the sixth project in the first course and it always amazes me how everyone improves throughout the course and paints a stunning seascape scene.
With each project personal feedback is given and extra handy tips, it is I feel really important to get positive feedback and often paintings are just put in a draw and forgotten, but to see where improvements can be made can make such a difference to confident painting.
If you would like to start the Online course it’s £55 for six projects and is suitable for anyone who would like to learn the magic of watercolour.
