No Excuses Watercolor




No Excuses Watercolor

Whimsical, wonderful, fluid, frustrating, intimidating, hard to control –


WATERCOLOR! Most people love the look of watercolor but are so fearful to give it a try because it is like herding cats! I have found that my approach to watercolor can be almost Zen like once you have given in to its beauty and let it do its own thing. Watercolor does have a mind of its own so the key is to let go of the tight grip of control and just go with it! In many ways it is just like life; the more you push the harder it is and when you allow yourself to move forward with trust things seem to fall into place.

There are many styles of watercolor painting that follow a traditional approach – mine is not one of them! I like to explore and experiment in a fun and fast way so that it is like playing with color. My techniques are loose and fluid and allow you to find your own way and style. I want the paint to express itself and show its personality. This style of painting is about letting go and freeing up!


So if you have always wanted to learn the art of watercolor this is the class for you!  Based on the same techniques as the companion book  by North Light Publishers " No Excuses Watercolor" May 2015 this class is a great way to dive in and get started in an easy and fun approach.

This course covers everything you need to know to get you on your way.  You will get yo know your paints, discover different drawing and sketching techniques and learn a variety of skills through fun exercises to help you find your own style.


Not only will you have NO MORE EXCUSES for not painting in watercolor - you'll fall in love with it!

I already have the book why should I bother taking the ecourse?

The book and the ecourse do cover some of the same exercises but many people need to see the whole process to feel comfortable. All of my courses are shot from my point of view so its like you are sitting right there with me instructing you ever step of the way. I feel that the best combination is to have book as a reference guide as a companion to the ecourse.

Do I need art experience to take this course?

Absolutely not! My approach is an easy one that provides guidance and inspiration whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned pro.

What materials do I need for the course?

Cold press watercolor paper
