15 minute christmas cards

Quick watercolour Christmas cards

 Christmas is coming! Did I just say that?! I thought it would be fun to paint some super quick Christmas cards. Each one you do will be a little different and there's lots of fun to be had with experimenting with different colours and inks. This way you can create a whole heap of cards and give everyone you love a little original painting for Christmas.

distant trees and forests in pen and watercolour


painting distant trees and forests in pen and watercolour

In this new skills lesson on Patreon we paint a distant conifer forest and a distant orchard. Then we put those skills together in a little autumn scene.

This lesson is a compliment to the "Mixing greens & painting summer trees" lesson we did a few months ago. You don't have to do the previous lesson before this one - they can be done in any order.

autumn in the spanish pyrenees


Autumn in the Pineta Valley, Spanish Pyrenees

Join me sketching outside in the beautiful Pineta Valley. I spotted this huge autumn tree dwarfing a lovely little barn right outside the national park of Ordesa y Monte Perdido. I knew immediately I'd love to share it with you.
