Learn Watercolor: The Heart-Led Way

Beginning Watercolor Techniques, Intuitive Methods

  Enroll in Course

I’ve taught beginner watercolor for fifteen years or more, and I believe in teaching good technique. Armed with the technical understanding of why watercolor does what it does, an artist can then make creative decisions that work with those techniques to create individual and authentic work.

Most watercolor instructors teach beginner techniques, and we all do it in a very factual, linear fashion. I started thinking recently, “What if beginners could learn a heart-led, creative, “zen” approach from the very beginning of their watercolor journey?”

What if heart-led watercolor could be the starting point, instead of introduced as an intermediate transition toward a personal loose style?

I think it can be done!

My goal as a professional artist is not to produce skilled and competent paintings. The word “competent” is boring to me. I want my paintings to show ME. I have learned that I do this best by creating a joyful, playful space to create; one that allows me to attune myself to what is happening on the paper and respond intuitively. It’s an approach that is very immediate, and very fluid, and it’s so much fun. I get to paint for fun, and I don’t think that idea should only be for advanced artists!

We rob beginners of joy when we tell them garbage like, “Watercolor is the hardest medium,” and “You can’t fix mistakes in watercolor.” It’s like we are planning for failure!

So I’ve decided to change the way I teach beginning painters how to paint, and I’d love you to come with me as I develop this new series of lessons designed to help the heart-led beginning painter create a joyful, intuitive learning process. Yes, watercolor techniques will be taught, but our focus will start with the PROCESS, making painting a healing, inspiring place of self-care and acceptance. Join me in learning watercolor the heart-guided way!

Note: Lessons are in development through the month of July, 2019. You'll receive an email when a new lesson releases (on average 2 per week).
