Painting figures with 3 Brushes and 3 Colors

An Exciting Challenge for Beginner and Amateur Watercolor Artists.

Learn the essential basics of watercolor painting.

In this step by step lesson you will learn:

How to paint a beautiful and interesting rocks.

How to paint the sea using the dry brush method.

How to paint figures.

How to paint a dog.

How to paint a beach surface with reflections.

How to use a touch of white paint to improve your paintings.

How to assess your work, correct your painting and get ideas for a second attempt.


You need a minimum of materials: just 3 brushes and 3 paints. There is a downloadable checklist with online links to dickblick art store.

No drawing is needed. I added a drawing which you can trace directly onto your paper with some carbon paper. But if you want to practice your free hand drawing then please go ahead and do that.

And each stage is laid out in clear and simple steps.

Finally, you get the chance to show me your work and get one piece of feedback from me and then to show me your second attempt and get another piece of feedback. This feedback could also be asking me a question about a problem you had while doing the painting, or some such query, and getting my feedback.

I am an English man living in Japan. I have been traveling around this interesting and wonderful country painting whatever takes my fancy for 18 years. Mostly, I love to paint landscapes and to capture the atmospheric quality of scenes at a particular moment in time.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now. It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. But to be honest, I recommend once you purchase this course that you start as soon as possible. I've made these videos little bite-size lessons that are easy to complete and fun!
How long do I have access to the course?
I can't guarantee lifetime access. But this video should be up for at least 5 years and probably much longer. However, once you've done this video I think you'll be wanting to move onto a new video and to keep developing your work. That's why I made these videos so cheap - so you can keep on doing new videos and improving without it costing too much.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, then contact me in the first 30 days and you'll get a full refund.
