This is my first online course, and where else do you start but at the beginning? In this self-paced beginners guide to contemporary watercolour we start from square one and build your skills and confidence towards painting botanical specimen from observation. I have essentially broken down my own process into accessible, bite size pieces ready for you to devour.

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.

Composition, but make it fun! In this course we are going to explore ways to create successful compositions using the principles of art as our tools. This is a hands on course where we will be applying these principles to artworks we create, learning as we go. The outcome will be a greater understanding of composition, the role it plays in our artworks and a clearer path to creating successful artworks.
Composition is such a large subject that I've created not one, but two courses! The first course or Compose, Paint Create Part 1 is launching in August and the follow on course, Compose, Paint, Create Part 2, later in 2023.
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.
