Come behind the scenes...mishaps and all!

Come and paint with me (virtually!) in my 'studio' (aka dining/living area) and take a peek inside my brain (um, scary?!).

You'll learn how (and why!) to...

  • easily pick which supplies to use depending on what you're painting!
     

  • choose a colour palette to suit YOUR vibe
     

  • how to confidently mix colours, and know how to make them lovely and bright (OR moody and earthy, whatever floats your boat!)
     

  • how to plan which techniques and why, so you can paint any leaf or flower (regardless of whether it's covered in the course!)
     

  • how (and why!) you can use fancy/scary sounding stuff like 'masking fluid' and a 'watercolour block'
     

You’ll finish with the skills and confidence to keep on painting without me!!!

Learn all my tips and tricks, the why (not just how) + develop your own unique painting style!

They're not mistakes, they're learning opportunities - right?!

But seriously, they are!!!

So...I’m not editing out the mishaps, the mistakes, and the “oh crap, that’s the wrong colour!” moments - because that’s where the good stuff happens, right?! (GULP!)

 

By showing you everything from planning and set-up, all the way through to finishing off my painting/s, you’ll see exactly what I do and WHY (and by seeing my mistakes, you’ll also learn what NOT to do, ha!)

UMM...I'M MAKING MYSELF REDUNDANT!

​You won't just learn what painting techniques I use... 
you'll learn how and why I do what I do (so you can just do it yourself, without my help!)

Join me as I paint (and talk you through the process!) several pieces from start to finish (actually, BEFORE start: planning and setting up!)

 

You’ll see all the behind the scenes planning before I even put paint on the page!

 

And, I’ll walk you through all the WHY behind the things I do - so you don’t have to guess/piece it together for yourself. 


I'm literally letting you inside my head, which is terrifying but exciting, so you can see how it's done!

 

By the time you finish the course, you can paint any flower you want (whether or not it's covered in the course!) - I'm making myself redundant!
 

You’ll finish with the skills and confidence to paint in a way that feels unique and authentic to you.
And there's even a baking video involved, because what is watercolour painting without a slice of cake and a cup of tea?

PSSST... 
Come and learn all my watercolour secrets!​

Paint any flower ever (without my help!)

After finishing the course you’ll be able to understand how I go from seeing a flower, deciding to paint it, and then actually turning it into a watercolour painting - so you can then do the same.

 

You’ll have the skills and knowledge to keep on painting - in fact, you won't even need me by the end of the course!

Testimonial

"I love flowers and have wanted to learn how to move from foliage to buds and flowers, this course has given me the freedom to paint flowers and moons and leaves and vines, and a stunning wreath. It's moved me from doodling to able to complete something on the page. Oh & I had ZERO idea about warm and cool colours and now, now I can mix vibrant colours!"

- Natasha

FIND YOUR OWN STYLE!
Do you ever feel like you're just emulating other people's art?

Whether it's through step-by-step tutorials (yes, like mine!!!) where you end up with the same/similar finished piece, or maybe you're reverse engineering a painting to work out how it was done?

Don't worry, that was me too!

 

And, it's a great place to start learning - in fact soon after I picked up a brush for the first time, I started learning from a heap of different people/their free tutorials, which was awesome!

 

BUT... it also meant that I was learning to paint in a heap of different styles (again, a great place to start!) - because I was learning how that person paints a certain thing, and just basically following along with their style.


I wanted to develop my own style, and I didn't really know how how?!


But, after 10+ years of painting (GULP!), I can say with confidence I've found my style...AND I know how I did it...

 

So now I'm gonna help you find your own unique painting style too!

YOU DON'T NEED FANCY STUFF!

You can probably relate to this... when I got started with watercolour (over 10 years ago!), I had absolutely no idea what I was doing!
 

Now, let's rewind just a li'l bit (this is relevant I promise!)...I became a mum when I was 15 - my eldest son was born in the school holidays between grade nine and grade 10.
 
As you can imagine, life was hectic!

Between finishing high school, navigating parenthood, trying to maintain friendships and alllll that, I didn't have much time (or money!) for hobbies.

But, that's where watercolour comes in!

I didn't know what supplies I needed (and  that I wasn't supposed to be painting on photocopy paper, oops!).

So, when I got started with watercolour I had no idea what I was doing - I didn't know what supplies I needed (or that I wasn't supposed to be painting on photocopy paper!).

 

In fact, the paints I was using were $2 from the supermarket, aaaand they technically belonged to my toddler!

IMG_7220.JPG

I didn't know what watercolour techniques there even were, so I know didn't what I needed to learn, let alone how to learn it. But, nonetheless, one day I picked up those crappy $2 paints and just had a play/dabbled with painting after my son had gone to bed.


And, it was amazing, it was a really lovely way to relax and unwind and just muck around, even though I had NO idea what I was doing.

 
Eventually upgraded and bought some brushes and paint for myself, and actual watercolour paper (aka not printer paper).


I spent almost every night when I wasn't studying sitting at the table with my laptop set up, watching The New Girl on DVD, just practicing and mucking around.


I'd try to reverse engineer how things were done, but looking at other people’s work, experimenting and seeing what happened! It took me, well, ages!

 

But, over time (with lotssss of trial and error, and some YouTube tutorials/library books to help along the way) I improved, and even (somehow!?) started teaching watercolour to people just like you!

 WHY am I telling you this?!


I got started because I wanted something just for me, to help me unwind and relax - and now I'm helping you do the same!


For me, painting is the closest that I get to feeling relaxed - it helps me quiet my mind a little, and just have some fun (and occasionally create something that I love and want to hang on the wall!). 
 

That's why I do what I do -  because I saw that watercolour painting was an incredible way to relax and unwind and do something just for me.


By sharing my experiences (and mistakes!) I can help you avoid that sense of overwhelm, and you can just jump in and start painting and have some fun, and feel confident and experience the fun, relaxing side of painting!
 
Plus, I'll help you develop your own style so you can look at any flower or leaf and know how to paint it, without watching a step by step tutorial!

Testimonial

"Thanks to Tess, I've discovered how fluid and flexible watercolour painting is as a medium. I can now remedy almost anything with a dab of water or pigment, soak up excess water with my brush and work in layers using the wet-on-wet or wet-on-dry techniques."

- Jane
