Learn to depict iconic seasonal foliage - holly, ivy and mistletoe - in watercolour.

COURSE STARTS 22nd November 2021

Three comprehensive tutorials focusing on how to depict iconic seasonal foliage - ivy, holly and mistletoe - in watercolour.

This course has two tiers: Standard and Masterclass. There are unlimited Standard course places whereas Masterclass places, which includes personal tutor advice and feedback, are limited.*

Each tutorial includes:

  • 45-70 minute video.
  • Notes.
  • Reference photos.
  • Exercise suggestions.
  • Discussion area to post work-in-progress and finished paintings (optional) for peer to peer advice and support.
  • Personal tutor advice and support, given via email or WhatsApp MASTERCLASS STUDENTS ONLY (FULL).

The tutorials are delivered over three weeks, with a further three weeks to revisit tutorials and complete projects. You can work at your own pace over the six weeks, after which the course ends.

*If you have taken part in any of my previous longer courses, be aware that this format is different (ie there are no named folders or feedback for Standard students).

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts on 22nd November 2021 and expires 27 December 2021. Though the three sessions are delivered over the first three weeks, this is a completely self-paced online course, so that you can complete the projects in any order over the six weeks.
How long do I have access to the course?
These courses were set up during the Pandemic as a response to the lack of face-to-face classes. For this reason: The tutorials are released weekly rather than all at once; students are encouraged to post their work for peer encouragement and support (optional); access to the course expires after six weeks.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us after the first session and we will give you a discretionary refund.
