I had an incredible day on Thursday – my first day of filming for my next online course SketchingNow Watercolour.
I have done all the filming for my first three courses myself (or with the help of a few friends for the outdoor videos – thanks Chantal and Esther) and all the editing as well, but I knew that I needed something special for a course on watercolour.
I also wanted SketchingNow Watercolour to be a full video course as the theory sections would need to have lots of little demos. So I have hired an amazing videographer and instead of filming lesson by lesson, I’ve had to prepare multiple lessons together for a few concentrated filming days.
We had an extremely ‘full-on’ Day 1 of filming, three hours to set up all the gear and then 8 hours straight of filming with only a short 15 minute lunch break. As you can see from the photos, we are using some serious gear and multiple cameras! I’ve very excited about the quality of video that I will be able to provide for this next course.
I can’t wait for the course to go live in early 2018. I’ve been wanting to put this together for ages – a course that is dedicated to watercolour for sketching rather than traditional studio painting.
Of course it is not just the video quality that I am concerned with – I also want this course to really help people with their major watercolour sketching struggles.
If you are interested in the course and haven’t already joined the waiting list, I suggest that you do here. I am sending weekly updates and in December will be sending out a few free intro lessons in the lead up to enrollment opening. Waiting List people also get a special earlybird price!
With all my lesson prep happening at the moment, it will be no surprise to you to hear that I am in major ‘deep work’ mode to get everything ready for my next 2 days of filming. Therefore I won’t be posting as many articles here for the next few weeks. But of course, I will post updates when I can!
