Learning to paint with watercolor can be hard

Hurry before enrollment ends!


OK, let me rephrase that...

Learning to paint with watercolor doesn't have to be hard.

  • when you know exactly what supplies you need and how to use them.
  • when you know and learn the skills and techniques you need to be successful.
  • when you have step-by-step videos of it all with me instructing and holding your hand all the way.
  • when you have exercises to practice that are designed to reinforce the skills you just learned.
  • when you have 3 step-by-step painting projects. Giving you 3 paintings that you can show off and be proud of. 
  • when you are able to go back and review or refresh those skills and techniques when ever you want.

Have you always wanted to learn how to paint but don't know where to start? Or maybe you are just starting out and need some guidance?

No problem!

I have designed my course specifically for you. You will be walked through all the steps of how to create beautiful watercolor paintings, while also receiving tips and tricks on how you can take it one step at a time.

Here's the problem...

You have always wanted to paint with watercolor but it is intimidating.

You just don’t know where to start let alone what you need to get started.

You paint with watercolor but can’t seem to get the results you want.

You struggle with water to paint ratio or other essential techniques.

Can you imagine...

  • sitting down to paint with confidence and joy. 
  •  having  your watercolors turn out.
  •   Knowing exactly what technique to use for the effect you want.  
  • knowing what colors to use and how to mix them. 
  • How much water you need to get the results you want. 
  • knowing when to glaze versus when to use a wash versus when to charge color etc...  
  • being able to joyfully share your creativity.

 "This watercolor course is done so well - for beginners, intermediate, or someone with experience who wants to learn more. I am in the intermediate phase and learned so much about color and addition techniques. Thank you for offering this class.

Hey there, I'm Krista!

I make learning to paint with watercolor easy for beginners, so they can skip the frustration and experience the joy.

When I bought my first set of watercolors at age 19, I had no clue they would sit in a box for 20 years.

Occasionally, I got them out, only to become frustrated and overwhelmed. I would quickly give up.

Finally, at 39, I took a beginner watercolor class at my local art center. When the class ended, I loved watercolor, but I did not have skills I needed to get better. 

Watercolor had me under its spell. I researched and practiced anything I could find on watercolor.  I was getting better, but it was not consistent.

 Learning bits and pieces here and there was difficult. Finally, sitting down and figuring what was giving me success in my paintings. Focusing on and practicing these techniques is when it all changed.

The joy and happiness I felt when I mastered a technique was like a drug lol. It was that joy that changed my life in ways I could have never imagined.

Now, I am a professional artist for the past 11 years. I have been selling my artwork in galleries since 2010. I have been featured in the International Artist's Magazine and have had my artwork licensed by Rogers Chocolates and the Proxim Group. Not bad for a self-taught artist.
I believe art can change lives; it did mine but that's a story for another time. This is why I am so passionate about helping beginners experience that joy.
