SketchingNow Watercolour : Group Run-Through

June 19, 2019 | Leave your thoughts

I’m excited to announce a Group Run-through of my SketchingNow Watercolour course starting on Wednesday 26 June.

I really love the content in this course and I’m very happy to be going through it again with a group!

Free for existing Watercolour participants

This Group Run-through is available (for free) to anyone who has enrolled in the Watercolour Course at any stage since it’s first release in January 2018.

If that’s you, then just head over to your Watercolour course (via My Courses) and there will be instructions as to how to join in.

Essential concepts for sketching with Watercolour

When I started sketching with watercolour I struggled to control the water in my mixes, I constantly created murky or flat washes and I was always fiddling and overworking. Does this sound familiar?

I realise now, that if I had understood the properties of water and some basics of how pigment suspended in water behaved, I would have reduced a lot of my frustration and disappointment. I would have understood that trying to ‘fix’ a damp wash on the page is rarely a good idea and that magic happens when I apply a juicy mix of pigment and water and leave it alone.

SketchingNow Watercolour contains all the essential concepts which I wish I’d known at the start. And these concepts can be applied to any way of working, not just mine!

This course contains a systematic approach to using watercolour for quick sketching based on 12 years of being an obsessive sketcher. We will look at topics such as:

  • how to increase your control of water – whether using a tight control or working looser and taking risks
  • how to decide when to layer/glaze and when to work wet-in-wet
  • how to create vibrant colours with a limited palette
  • how to be more confident with your use of colour
  • how to apply all these techniques to sketching on location
  • how to develop your own style for watercolour sketching

And much more!
