Description

REVIEW: 'This is what I was looking for at this stage of my introduction to watercolour, ‘Basic techniques’ how to layer the paint to produce a finished picture. I liked the way Nicola conducts her tutorial in a genuine relaxed manner as she takes you through each stage of the painting as this helped me relax into the project and not feel overwhelmed by what I was being shown. I now feel ready to move on to the next stage of Nicolas courses.'

This delightful and atmospheric painting will help build confidence for both the beginner and the intermediate. In the process of painting this you will learn about colour mixing, colour values, creating a sense of distance and how to use your watercolour pencils for a special effect.

Use both a large and small watercolour paint brush and gradually work through the process at your own pace, as where and when it suits you.

Each lecture ends at a natural break as I wait for the watercolour paint to dry. Listen as I explain every step of the way, and ask questions of myself as I work through the picture, problem solving as I go, an important process to learn.

Most of all become absorbed in the process of painting this watercolour picture.

  • Why choose one of my courses?

    Because, as a self taught artist I understand how a lot of people feel about their creative work, sometimes anxious, sometimes overwhelmed and often that it's not 'good enough'. I will hold your hand as you overcome these fears as I offer a friendly, relaxed and sensitive teaching style.

    I also have years of experience of teaching people of all levels both in person and via the internet.

    Do one of my courses and you will feel as if I am in the room with you every step of the way.

Enjoy your painting, love Nicola

I always like to paint a bit on every part of a picture so that you can get a feel for the whole thing.

In this lecture I decided to put a very weak blue wash in for the sky and do some work on the stone walls.

Deciding on a sky.
19:38

Here I start to add some detail, although I still want it to be a loose painting it will need some detail to make the most of the subject.

I also decided to add a bit more colour in the form of flowers I call Hollyhocks. I have put a picture in the resources for this lecture.


Adding some detail and a bit of colour
16:13

In this lecture I start to show you how to take a fresh look at your work, looking for problems which may need solving, balance and even, dare I say, errors.


Taking stock of the whole picture.
19:33

In this final lecture  I will explain what changes I have made and make a few adjustments.


I hope you have enjoyed painting this charming picture and please do share your finished painting with me and the other students. Don't be shy.


We learn from each other, including me, and it's also encouraging for everyone to see how other people are doing. It isn't a competition remember, it's creative play.


Enjoy your painting, Nicola
