Welcome to Step By Step Watercolours!
Have you always wanted to give watercolours a try but weren't sure where to start?
I designed this new series of online classes for beginners or anyone looking to paint in a looser, abstract style. Don't worry if you've never painted before! My hope with these classes is to eliminate the fear and show you simple, easy to follow techniques that you can master at your own pace while learning at home. Each class includes an illustrated workbook with step-by-step instructions as well as full video tutorials so you can follow along with me as I paint.
I hope you enjoy!

frequently asked questions
What supplies will I need for these classes? Will I have to buy different materials for each one?
My free supplies guide above lists all the materials you will need for every course I offer. Sometimes I will only be using a smaller selection of those supplies for a particular lesson, and those will be listed in the workbook for that course.
I can't find or afford the same supplies as your guide, is that ok?
Yes! My supplies are only recommendations since they are what I like to use, but there are a ton of other great brands of paint and brushes, so please feel free to use whatever you like. The colours don't have to match mine exactly, just use my suggestions as a starting off point. BUT if there is one area where you can splurge, buying some good quality 140lb cold press paper such as Arches or Fabriano will make a world of difference in your work! I promise you'll love it once you give it a try.
Is there a class I can try for free before I buy?
Yes! Please take a look at my free beginner's course above. This will give you an idea how I lay out my workbooks and demonstrate through video tutorials.
I'm a complete beginner and I'm nervous I won't be able to do this.
Don't worry! My style of painting is very loose and abstract so we don't need to get too consumed with making all the little details perfect. It's super important to me that my instructions are clear and easy to understand. I make sure that all the techniques are broken down into simple steps so you can follow along with me. Videos are great for that reason! Just go at your own pace and feel free to pause or repeat any part you like.
*** Although all my classes are tailored for beginners, if you're completely new to painting please check out my free intro course above. These free lessons cover all the basic techniques that you'll want to know before diving into my other floral lessons.
Will you have more lessons in the future? How can I find out when you launch a new course?
Yes! I'm so excited to be adding all kinds of new floral lessons. If you'd like to be the first to know about classes and receive special discounts please feel free to sign up for my mailing list above.
