new painting tutorial - five watercolour skies


Learn to paint 5 different watercolour skies

In this lesson we will paint five different watercolour skies...
  • summer sky with puffy clouds
  • stormy sky
  • cirrus sky
  • sunrise
  • night sky with milky way.
I'll teach you lots of tips and tricks and give you some rules to follow so that you skies will look realistic with a lovely sense of depth. 

Skies are a wonderful way to practice painting watercolour - they teach you all about timing (which is so important in painting in watercolours) and about pigment and water control. They're super fun to paint and only take 10 to 15 minutes to complete - so you can paint them again and again, gaining a lot of skills along the way.

Full lesson is 50min long, only NZ$10 and you can find it here.

live online painting class - venice sunset


Watercolour painting lesson via Zoom

Another super lovely painting session with folks across the globe. This time we visited Venice and painted a beautiful sunset scene in neutral tones. We covered painting with one of my favourite triads - monte amiata natural sienna, light red and cobalt blue. And I showed students a trick on how to get that pretty sparkle on the water and boats.

Next Zoom class will be mid February 2021. Maximum 10 students. Sign up to my mailing list to be in the know.
