BEGINNER WATERCOLOR COURSE - Learn to Paint this Window Scene

Have you ever wanted to take up watercolors, but found most classes are too heavy and academic? These classes are similar to a Paint Night but we use watercolors. The classes are Easy, and no basic knowledge of watercolors are needed. You can usually finish your first painting under 2 hours.

This course is simple and easy to follow, plus minimal materials are needed to start painting today. Use any watercolors or brushes you have on hand, but I'll give you my favorite supplies and a PDF list to go by.

The course is broken down into small easy steps and I'll paint along with you. If you have questions as you go along please feel free to send me a private message or ask openly on the discussion board.

  • You will need watercolor paper 5x7" or larger 140lb cold press is recommended.
  • Watercolor Paints - The Winsor Newton Cotman set has all the colors I use all my courses. For this painting please refer to the PDF for exact colors for this scene.

  • Complete this "Looking through the Window" Watercolor Scene step by step.
  • Creative Fun and enjoyment of watercolors. Learn what materials to use for basic watercolor
  • Learn to Sketch, use a light color wash, and add fine details on a seascape watercolor painting.
  • In this course you will learn to paint in trees, water, and a sky with clouds.

What is the target audience?

Here are some recent reviews from  ART STUDENTS:

★★★★★ "EASY TO FOLLOW"

I have been a Bob Ross certified instructor for 26 years and I have taught in various venues. Kelly is very clear in her instructions and she makes it easy to follow what she is doing. The class is simple enough for beginners and yet she gives the student plenty of room for creating a little on their own. The instruction on the supplies was also clear and easy to follow.

~Cherly M.

★★★★★ "ENJOYED"

"I enjoyed doing this this painting. I am new to watercolor. Was able to follow, having to go back occasionally. Will probably do this painting several times just for the practice. I contacted the Kellie Chasse sight because of interest in alcohol oil painting. So will be an active student for awhile to come. Thank you for a great beginning!!"  

~Kathleen F.

★★★★★ "BIG HELP"

"Because everything was explained so simply, and Kellie's painting in real time was a very big help. I intend to take more of her courses in the future."

~Jill B.
