    Lessons in Layering with Watercolour

    How to create artworks with depth, interest and detail with Natalie Martin

    • Intermediate Level
    • Suitable for ages 10+
    • Self-paced learning
    • Unlimited Lifetime Access
    • Beautifully filmed in HD

    Hi, I’m Natalie Martin, an Australian watercolour artist, based on Wadawarrung country (Surf Coast, Victoria).

    The fluidity and subtlety of watercolour is only enhanced through working with layers, you can create a beautiful luminosity. This is quite unique to watercolour and one of the main reasons I love this medium so much.

    This new intermediate course is my third online course, following on from Welcome to Watercolour and the Magic of Colour Mixing. In it, we’ll dig into basic and more advanced layering techniques, you’ll spend time experimenting with ways to layer pigment, and learn

     how to create different effects (as long as you can muster the patience to let things dry properly as you go!) You’ll gain greater insight into my practice, as we explore how to create artworks with greater complexity, detail and interest. We also take time to delve into common errors and equipment care.

    This course is the perfect next step once you’ve mastered the basics. Layering work brings watercolour to its greatest potential, and I can’t wait to see how you continue to develop your practice and build confidence in painting with this magical medium. 

    What to expect:


    9 videos shot in High Definition with an overall run time of 2 hours and 40 minutes. The beauty of a self paced online course is that you work through this course to pause and practice before proceeding onto the next stages.

    Outcomes:


    • A comprehensive overview of watercolour layering techniques 

    • An understanding of translucency, colour, tone as well as other techniques such as negative space

    • Tips to fix errors and how to look after your equipment

    • How to work from photos

    • A series of botanical watercolour paintings

    Downloadable files included:



    • Materials List

    • 60 page Course E-Book 

    • A set of photos for painting inspiration

    • Reference sheets of Natalie's course work

    Lessons in Layering with
    Watercolour E-Book

    Included in your enrolment is a 60 page e-book (available on Teachable only). Chock full of hot tips, key takeaways and extension projects to further your watercolour fun. This is your companion guide for the course, something to reference when you are practicing and playing at home.

    What you'll need:


    I go into greater detail on materials required in the second video of the course. I have tried to keep the supplies required to a minimum so it's more about the painting than the supplies!

    • Watercolour paints
    • Round brushes - size 10 and 4
    • Watercolour paper
    • Pencil, eraser and ruler
    • A water jar
    • Palette (an old plate will do)
    • Paper towel
    • Painter's masking tape
    • Surface to work on
    • Computer, tablet or phone

    I have put together a painting kit of basic materials you'll need available below.

    Watercolour course

    I thoroughly enjoyed learning from Natalie, the instructions were very clear and Natalie has a wonderful relaxed style of teaching . This course has helped me loosen up and enjoy the process rather than get too involved with detail . I would highly recommend this course .

    This is so wonderful to hear Lesley! Enjoy and happy painting!

    Brilliant!

    This was my first water colour course and I absolutely loved it. I'm new to water colour and there are so many little differences to using acrylics that make a massive difference to the end result. I've learnt patience through working a few pieces at a time (something my hyper focussing mind has struggled with before) and how to effectively layer using different colour values. There are also so many tips packed in here that my water colour flowers have gone from unhappy blobs to something family and friends are wowing at.
    Loved it, thoroughly recommend it and looking forward to the composition one :)

    Kate, your review is a pleasure to read! It makes me so happy that you enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. Happy painting. The new one, Compose, Paint, Create is not far away!

    I loved it

    I enjoyed the online course a lot and can already see difference in my art work. The course was easy to follow and Natalie gave constant reminders to be patient and let the paint dry before going to next step which is what I usually forget when painting. Thanks Natalie

    I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed the course Shubi! Patience is king with your layers, happy painting :)
