My Story = Your Story
Whether you are new to watercolor or have some experience, know that my journey has been just like yours.
I took classes and workshops, watched videos, read books – anything that might help me improve and understand this tricky medium. Unfortunately, the traditional way of teaching and learning watercolor only gets you so far.
It’s hard to believe, but the most sophisticated watercolor painting is built three things : A handful of basic watercolor painting techniques; a simple approach to composition; and practical, easy-to-understand color ideas. Watercolor Methods lessons integrate all three into comprehensive but easy-to-follow lessons.
Most Watercolor Methods Members are adult learners who find a focused approach that integrates
There is something for everyone – from beginners to advanced.
I'm just starting out in watercolor. Is this program for me as a Beginner?
Absolutely! All lessons are easily followed by watercolorists at all skill levels. The lessons are comprehensive and very well explained in a step-by-step way. Each lesson is focused on a few key things, but all include considerations of technique, composition and color presented in a way to make it easy to understand and integrate.
One of the greatest benefits of starting this program as a beginner is that it will help you avoid developing bad habits that are hard to undo later.
How often do you release new lessons and tutorials?
Watercolor Essentials Members get at least one new full-length, in-depth watercolor painting lesson every month.

What materials, brushes and supplies are needed?
Each lesson has a complete list of materials and supplies needed. There are two introductory videos with each lesson. One is about the project and includes info on the paper being used as well as the downloadable drawing layout and other references.
The second covers the paint and brushes used in the lesson. You may not always have the exact paper, paints, or brushes. That’s fine.
Don’t put off the lesson! Just use what you have available.
