Skill level: Beginner
Suitable for ages 8+
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.
Duration: 2 hours and 40 minutes
Skill level: Intermediate
Suitable for ages 10+
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 new course, The Magic of Colour Mixing follows on from Welcome to Watercolour and is for budding and established artists alike. In it, we’ll go deep into modern colour theory and together, we’ll build up your skills and confidence so you too can create works bursting with life and begin to develop your own language with colour.
"I am familiar with basic watercolor techniques, but I have never seen them explained more clearly than in this course. Although I don't live in Australia, I also love Australian flora, and the final project of the class was a lot of fun!”
"This course was so informative and inspiring and great that you could work with what you have. The simple techniques provided a base of knowledge with which to work and play with. I don't consider myself an artist, yet I learnt enough during this course (which I completed in one sitting) to create my first finished piece. It was encouraging to get a great result in one sitting, and I'm looking forward to adapting and refining my use of watercolour further. Thanks for an incredibly enriching course!”
"I like how this course focused on technique and the importance of brush strokes. The course is laid out nicely, building from one lesson to the next and the video quality is excellent. Natalie stresses the importance of practicing these techniques as a solid foundation to rely on. Working this way helps build my confidence."
