    Are you a budding artist wanting to take the next step? Join me, Natalie Martin, a professional watercolour artist as I guide you through how to bring artworks together on your own and start to develop your own artistic voice. I am encouraging, gentle and human and nothing brings me more joy than watching my students grow.

    Compose, Paint, Create Part 2 is the follow up course to Compose, Paint, Create Part 1. We’ve already begun to understand the importance of this underrated, fascinating and fundamental bank of knowledge, it’s time to make it official. This course will solidify your understanding of how to create compelling compositions using watercolour botanicals.

    We pick up where we leave off in Part 1 and explore the further five Principles of Art; Contrast, Movement, Rhythm, Pattern and Repetition - rounding out our understanding of these powerful tools. Each has a creative project wrapped around it so we can put the theory straight into practice.

    Before we wrap up, we learn how to analyse our compositions ourselves! Analysis is an incredibly important part of your creative process and progression

    as an artist. It’s what is going to help bring everything all together and get the 10 Principles of Art humming in your work. Understanding how to analyse artwork is not only going to have an impact on your own work, but the way you interpret artwork everywhere - from a gallery to the street art at the end of your block.


    We top things off with how and when to break the rules. We’ve just spent a few hours learning all the rules, and yep! - there are times and places where breaking the rules really works. It’s an interesting fun thing to play with and can be the secret sauce that takes your work to the next level.


    Through my research I found that most courses on composition were either overly simplified or too heavy on the theory therefore difficult to engage with. I created this course so we can not only comprehensively cover composition but also have a little fun with it. I also provide you the information, tools and reference material to put it all straight into practice! 


    Once again we use botanicals as our guiding theme, something to gel it all together. I have a whole different bunch of flowers and foliage to inspire you and create some beautiful compositions. Let’s paint our way to understanding composition! Grab your paint brushes, let’s get started.

    What to expect:


    10 videos shot in High Definition with an overall run time of 3 hours and 45 minutes. The beauty of a self paced online course is that you can work at your own space and pause and practice before proceeding onto the next stages. You are also able to revisit the course time and time again.

    • A comprehensive understanding of composition

    • A solid understanding of watercolour materials

    This class Exceeded my expectations!

    This is the most amazing class on composition! I have not seen anything of this level anywhere else, and I have searched. It gives all the branches of information to hang your paintings of composition on. I now have a logical format to reference to see what worked and what didn’t and why not. Then I have also been introduced to more concepts to try out. I cannot recommend this highly enough! Do not pass this class, give it a watch :) Thank you Natalie for sharing your wealth of knowledge ❤️
