Paint your own Christmas Cards
What you'll learn
- Paint Christmas cards in watercolor in a range of styles
- You should be able to paint a little in watercolors and have your own paints and brushes.
I’ve designed 8 different cards that are simple to paint and quick to do. They are all in different watercolor styles and I’ve included ideas for variations on the theme and for further inspiration.
Each card is fun to paint, and you will learn some interesting watercolor techniques as you do them.
So now you can send your own handmade and hand-painted Christmas cards to those special people in your life.
The 8 different styles of card have full written instructions to download, and videos to show you how they have been painted, so you can follow along easily. And it doesn’t matter if you have little painting experience - they are easy to do and very effective.
A great way to personalize Christmas.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone with basic watercolor skills will be able to enjoy making these cards.
I have taught painting for many years, both in adult education classes and also over the internet. Through my online courses I have taught thousands of people to paint since 2005. I have lead a number of painting holidays in the UK and overseas, write regularly for Leisure Painter magazine in the UK, and for a short time I was an instructor with Derwent Pencils. For five years I worked in ceramics, painting large tiled wall murals to commission.
I am originally from England, but now live in southern Spain with my lovely wife and two dogs.
My interest in painting goes back to my childhood, and I have learned throughout my life the skills and ideas that have kept me in employment and which I now hope to pass on to you. I love working in watercolors and gouache, and also in oils and acrylics. Each of these requires a different way of working, but I always aim to keep my paintings lively and fresh. I always want to convey something of the heart to anyone looking at my paintings.
The exercises and painting projects in my courses have all been thoroughly tested over time and proved to work well, and I am constantly amazed at the speed at which students improve. I hope you enjoy learning with me!
