I will give you two very important tips that I wish I had known when I first started painting

I will supply you with four little vignettes that you can use to copy in order to practice your brush strokes.

This class is especially suitable for beginners.  It will also be useful for anyone who has not yet used a Hake brush. You will only need some watercolor paper, a Hake brush, a rigger or small round brush and a small selection of watercolor paints. Throughout the class there will be small tasks, top tips and recaps at the end of the lessons.
