Painting with watercolors should be fun, shouldn't it?

You’ve tried to start painting. You bought supplies, got them all out on the table, pulled out a fresh sheet of paper...and all you feel is paralyzed.

You’re trying to learn but don’t know if you should be practicing brush strokes or painting flowers to get better.

You're frustrated with yourself because what comes out on paper is not what you had imagined in your mind.

You’ve watched plenty of video tutorials but you’re still lost on how to work your palette and you have more questions than ever. You’re trying to piece together how to watercolor on your own, with no help.

You wish someone would just guide you step-by-step in an order that actually makes sense, and that you had a way you could just ask questions when you need to.

 
 
 

Imagine feeling confident in your ability to paint anything.

Think about how you’ll feel once you’ve built a solid foundation of knowledge, figured out when to use what technique, have a plan for the days you might feel stuck, and are overflowing with ideas that make you excited to paint everyday.

  • You’ll finally have the confidence to share your work and and be proud of the progress that you’ve made.

  • You’ll paint without worrying about other people being “better” than you.

  • You will have a new hobby that brings you joy.

  • You’ll rediscover the creativity that we all have inside of us.

  • You'll be painting original art for yourself, your friends and family, and perhaps even customers!

You’re ready to start watercoloring, but you're asking yourself questions like...

  • How do I learn with no experience?
     
  • Can I learn watercolors if I can’t draw?
     
  • How do I control the flow of the paint?
     
  • How will I develop my own style?
     
  • What if I’m not creative enough?
     
  • What do I start painting first?
 
 
 

I know there can be a lot of questions and confusion if you’re starting to watercolor for the first time.

If you don’t have a plan to follow, it can be easy to start off on the wrong track, get frustrated, feel defeated, and completely give up on watercolors.

Without guidance and support, it can be difficult to make progress and more importantly, develop your creative confidence!

That’s why I created my step by step course, Just Watercolor!

I found getting into watercolors really daunting. Even though I already had a bunch of paints and brushes, I had no idea what to paint or how to start. The lessons and easygoing teaching style made me feel like I was able to dive into the subject without feeling too overwhelmed or confused. The pace was great, not too fast and not too slow - and the lessons were the perfect length of time. Although now I’m wishing it was longer!

I just want to take this opportunity to tell you how very pleased I am with your course. Your step by step approach of starting from the very beginning and working up from there is exactly what I was looking for. I’ve learned far more in a few hours watching your lessons than I did after completing 12 hours of live watercolor classes. Great job! Thanks.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

When does the course begin and end?

The course can be taken at your own pace and begins and ends whenever you want it to! You have immediate access to all the lessons and bonus modules once you enroll.

Do I get lifetime access to the course material?

Yes! You have unlimited lifetime access for the life of the course. Meaning if I were to ever close the course in the distant future, you would be notified far in advance to allow time for you to complete any lessons and download any resources!

What supplies will I need to take the course?

Good quality, basic watercolor supplies are all you need to take the course. I go through the recommended supplies in detail in the Welcome Module (available right after you enroll!)

Is this course different than your Brit+Co course?

Yes! While the Brit+Co course is a great 1-hour long project-based course, this 5 Module foundational course really goes in depth into building a strong foundation in watercolor! It is truly step-by-step!

Can I take the lessons anytime I want?

Yes, all modules are available for viewing anytime you want.

What projects will I paint in the course?

This is a foundational course in watercolors. This means that all lessons are focused on laying the groundwork for you to learn watercolors through mixing colors, stroke exercises, and what I call "application projects". These projects are focused on applying what you've learned to small projects. We will combine everything you learned to paint a simple landscape. Keep in mind that this is not meant to be a subject-based course, but rather a course that is meant to establish your confidence, hone you basic skills and prepare you to have the confidence to continue painting your own projects in YOUR unique style!

What is the time commitment per week?

Each week you can expect the exercises to take anywhere between 2-4 hours (maybe longer if you get lost enjoying your painting time!) However, keep in mind there is no pressure for you to complete and turn in homework. This course is meant to make watercolors enjoyable - so move at your own pace, give yourself grace, and have fun!

Do I have to be able to draw to take the course?

Absolutely not! You can paint beautiful watercolors without being able to draw. In fact, it'd how I do most of my paintings and I'll show you how! If you're still feeling unsure, I go over basic drawing and composition in one of the course bonuses so make sure to watch that lesson before getting started with the course!

What is the refund policy?

You have 14 days to try out the course. If during this time you are unsatisfied with the course in anyway, please let me know and I'll issue you a 100% refund. Read the full refund policy here.

How many lessons are in each Module and in what format?

The number of lessons vary per Module depending on the topic. Each module is meant to cover a specific topic so that you are able to go back and reference the lessons easily (without having to scroll through a long video). Module 1, for example has 7 lessons. All lessons are video with audio consisting on a mix of live overhead and closeup shots as well as some slides. In total, there are over 30 lessons in the course!

 
 
 
 

Hi, I’m Susan and I love creating with watercolors!

I rediscovered watercolors early last year after 10+ years of trading traditional art for digital design and quickly realized that this was something that brought me joy and reignited my creative passion. My friends and family were surprised that I had this hidden talent and encouraged me to share, so I started teaching! I’ve been answering all types of questions through my blog, email, and local workshops, but I knew I could reach so many more people looking to uncover their creativity with watercolors.

I created this course because I believe we are all creative and everyone can find joy watercoloring with the right guidance and support.

I’m excited to see what you create in the course!
