My name is Nathan Brown. I’ve been a professional artist for over 20 years now. I’ve done a little bit of everything in my creative career, but one thing that has remained constant is my love for traditional watercolor painting. I’ve put together this course to share my passion for this medium, and to show you how easy it is to get started.

This course is designed for anyone who has wanted to give watercolor a try but hasn’t found the motivation, or maybe you’ve dabbled in the medium but were unable to find your footing to progress.

Using my years of experience, and helped by real life artists – I’ve developed a fun, simple process to support whatever your skill level. It will give you confidence and help you tackle subjects you never thought possible!

In the course we’ll cover everything from all of the supplies you’ll need, setting up a work space, the characteristics of watercolor and what to look for, different brush techniques, how to select paint colors, how to avoid overworking and muddy colors, sketching for watercolor, and how to study and practice. We’ll also walk through a final project painting together so that you can clearly see every step in the process. I believe you’ll be amazed at how far you can progress in such a short amount of time.

As a bonus I’ve included several PDF guides, printable aides and even some of my own sketches that you can paint.

By the end of the course you’ll not only have the basic skills and understanding that you need to paint watercolor, but you’ll also have the right mindset and goals to keep progressing and learning beyond the course.

I’m so excited for you to get started with watercolor, and I can’t wait to see your paintings! So I’ll see you in lesson one!
