Some of the most common questions:

  • How long do I have access to this class? 

You have 1 year from the date of purchase unless you are subscribed to the "All you can paint" plan, then you have access as long as you are subscribed.

  • I can only invest in one professional art supply, which one should it be?

Watercolor paper is the foundation of your watercolor painting, always consider investing in the best watercolor paper.

I choose 100% cotton watercolor paper but not all cotton papers are the same. 

Different companies use different sizing. 

I choose Hahnemuhle "The Collection" (black/orange cover) as my main watercolor paper because I can paint in layers - yet I can still lift colors. Also, Hahnemuhle uses plant-based sizing, so the paper doesn’t have a smell to it, it’s not an animal product, and I have not had any issues with the paper being spoiled.

I did experience an issue with watercolor papers that use the animal product - gelatin, these papers do get spoiled after some time.

Cellulose papers react differently compared to 100% cotton.

Basically, if you want to paint in layers, and you want to be able to create smooth layers, then you want to choose a 100% cotton watercolor paper-like Hahnemuhle The Collection, Cezanne, Leonardo, or Arches.

  • I am a beginner, is this class too advanced for me?

When I first started painting with watercolors, I chose any subject I was interested in painting. I did not limit myself, that’s because I knew that 'I can paint it’ - it may not look as good at that 'learning stage' but at least I did it, and from then on my confidence kept growing as an artist. You can see some of my first artwork on youtube:

Every hour you put into painting something - becomes an experience. Experience you need to become a good painter. Please, don’t ever limit yourself to the subjects.

I break my classes down into stages, so they are suitable for beginners too.

If you need to start from the very beginning, I recommend a course in my school called "New to watercolors".
