Description

UPDATED 2022.
This is a fabulous course to REALLY loosen up your painting style.
I have marked this painting process at the intermediate level because I believe that it will help a lot of painters push themselves that bit further, no matter what level you are. However if you are an absolute beginner or not prepared to use a lot of water this may not be for you.

Many people enjoy painting floral subjects and this one will show you colour mixing from a very limited palette, exploring light and shade and how to face a blank piece of paper and go straight in with some paint. It will help build you CONFIDENCE too
This painting procedure is for those who want to try a different way of painting with watercolours. Perhaps you are feeling:
•’stuck in a rut.’
•That your watercolour pictures look dull and lifeless.
•That your watercolour work lacks drama.
•That you want to paint in a more relaxed and wet style.
•That you want to explore what you and your watercolour paints are really capable of.
Work your way through the easy to follow videos as I demonstrate each stage, explain every step stopping naturally as the watercolour paint needs to dry. 
If there is anything that you think is not clear and you do not understand in any way then please ask me and I will do everything I can to make improvements. 

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

Professional Artist, Teacher and Creative Entrepreneur
    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’. 
  Well I will hold your hand as you overcome these fears as I offer a friendly, relaxed and sensitive teaching style. 
    Do one of my courses and you will feel as if I am in the room with you every step of the way. 
    Here’s a bit about me. 
    I originally trained as a graphic artist, and then followed a different career path working in the national media, travel and public relations in both London and Paris. 
            After sometime I returned to my creative roots full time, so to speak, and became a full time artist, teacher and creative entrepreneur. 
            The artist bit means I have worked in a variety of media, but am currently splashing about with watercolours. I love the magic they make when the pigments play with the water. And if you let them do their own thing, it’s even better. 
            I have also painted murals in a child’s bedroom or around a swimming pool, covering everything from fairies to Tuscan views. Painted furniture with decorative effects and designs and given walls specialist paint effects and stencils. All fun stuff for the discerning home owner 
            The teaching bit involved me teaching a ‘Decorative Paint Effects’ section of an interior design certificate course at Kidderminster College, Worcestershire, UK. Here they studied paint effects for walls and furniture, designing and cutting stencils, Period design elements and produced sample boards. 
            Then continuing the theme of teaching I have also tutored on many private workshops in the above subjects plus decoupage, gilding and trompe l’oeil (trick the eye painting). 
            Now, installed in the south of France I continue with all of the above but adding on-line courses to my creative portfolio. Flexibility is the name of the game in today’s world 
            I have exhibited widely in the area. 
            Recently I was invited to plan and teach a creative summer school, offering a variety of artistic subjects, at one of the leading camping venues in the area. So, you never know some of these subjects might pop up as one of my courses on Udemy 
            I have had work featured in a national ‘lifestyle’ magazine and on BBC Radio 4 and Central TV in the UK
