  1. How to paint a Hare's Eye.

    In this video I paint a Hare's eye with a realistic reflection.  A Hare is a wonderful mistical animal and seems to be everyones favourite.  I have painted many over the years.  Unfortunatly they seem to be a rare site in the UK. 

    In this sped-up version of 'How to Paint a Hare''s eye' you will see how I use the colours to produce a reflection in the eye.  So why not sit back, relax with a cup of tea and watch this version of how I painted a Hare's eye in watercolours.

  2. What can the Watercolour School offer you?

    Hello. I thought I would let you know all about my Online Watercolour School and to answer two of the most common questions asked.

    My Online Watercolour School gives you step by step videos on how to paint wildlife, flora and fauna and much more.  It also aims to encourage and inspire you to pick up that paintbrush.

    Question one: I don't have time to commit each week?


    Even though it is called a Watercolour School, there are no assignments and there are no targets for you to complete.  It is like having lots of 1:1 lessons in your own home and you don't have to go anywhere. The School is open 24/7 so you can log in whenever you want.
    The tutorial videos range from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the subject. You choose which step by step video you would like to do and you don't have to complete every one.

    Question two: I can't draw, will this be a problem?

     

    Not at all.  All of the tutorials have a PDF Line drawing already drawn out for you, so all you have to do is trace out the drawing and transfer it to the watercolour paper.  For many years artists have been using this technique to help them draw out their subjects.  As you progress, your drawing skills will naturally improve.
