The essence of the way I like to teach watercolor technique is a blend of spontaneity and control. Anyone who has ever taken one of my online art classes, or just watched a free watercolor tutorial online (check out my youtube channel), knows I am a big believer of not fighting watercolor and letting it do its own thing.

Secret Bag of Tricks

In this new online watercolor class, Watercolor Textures, I have brought together my favorite bag of tricks that I incorporate into my landscape paintings over and over again.

One goal I made for this class, is that you will come away with an arsenal of tricks to use in your own paintings. Rather than learn how to copy a painting from start to finish, I want to share all my little secrets that I use in my watercolor paintings for creating textures. This way you will gain the confidence to do your own watercolor landscapes in your own style.

The Secret for finding time to paint

One of my secrets for making time for my art is making it easy to take it with me on the go. So, not only will I teach all my simple tricks for making your watercolor paintings interesting but I will teach how to make this portable sketchbook and watercolor palette. This way, you can take your art with you when you travel or just fit in a little creative “me” time into your busy life. Isn’t it about time you focus on you?

online art classes in watercolor techniques http://schulmanart.blogspot.com/2015/03/who-else-wants-to-win-free-art-class.htmlThe focus on this class will be on individuality and self-expression. Of course you will learn lots and lots of watercolor techniques but rather than learning how to copy one painting you will learn techniques for skies, grass, leaves, trees, water, sand, waterfalls and more– basically many textural elements that you encounter while landscape painting. This course will give you the confidence to create your own landscape painting (or ANY painting) in your own style.

  • Learn how to make your watercolor landscapes interesting by choosing a focal point
  • Master easy tricks for painting leaves
  • Discover easy techniques for adding more textured looks to a watercolor painting
  • Identify the individual artist inside of you by learning techniques you can incorporate into your own paintings in your own way.
  • Build your landscape skills through lots of inspiring photo references and ideas on how to make the painting individual
  • As an additional bonus training, you will learn how to make a no-sew watercolor sketchbook and cheap portable watercolor palette that fits in your bag so you can paint on the go and practice your landscape painting anytime and anywhere

  1. I am a sculptor (self taught) who has been studying color, composition, different mediums but know always learning, never applying has to stop NOW! I need to actually start painting!
    I'm retired and have built up the supplies so want to be brave! I loved your nude women, cats and cow paintings!

  2. I would like to enjoy being the student for a change. I am of full retirement age now and I still share my knowledge with anyone who wants to learn, but sometimes it is just nice to recall the excitement of stepping in the art room and smelling the paint!

  8. Watercolor painting is my last frontier in art. Of all the art forms I've dabbled in over the years watercolor is the one which has remained elusive. I deeply desire to learn more about it as I love the look and feel of working in this fascinating medium in my art journal.

  9. I am 60 years old and have only just discovered art a couple of years ago. I just wish that I had discovered it when I was younger and had more time to learn.

  14. I would like to take this class because I have always felt that my watercolor work was flat looking. I can obtain texture in acrylic work by simply adding a medium or combing through the paint. But I'm stumped about how to do it with watercolors. Thanks for considering me!

  16. I am new to watercolor and am interested in learning anything I can. I cannot find a teacher in my area, so I'm scouring the Internet for everything I can find. I'm having so much fun just playing with the colors but the difference between acrylics and watercolor is astounding. Need all the help I can get.

  19. I am taking your Watercolor Secrets (and Watercolor Cats) classes and absolutely love them!! You are a fantastic teacher and I am learning so much!! I love your loose style of painting….and that's my goal, to have my painting look like a painting and not a photograph! I would love to "win" your How to Creat Texture class so that I can continue to broaden my knowledge in watercolors. Thank you so much for this generous opportunity!! You have inspired me so much …

  20. I want to take the watercolor course because I am learning to pain. After many years of telling myself that I can't paint, I decided to explore painting anyway. I discovered that people are not born with an artistic gift, one can learn techniques to be a gifted painter. I also discovered that the secret to joy from painting is the process, not just the end product. I love to find a few minutes to wet a paint brush or take out my sketch book and create something.

    Reply
  21. I've been so busy the past several months taking care of others I've gotten away from painting and you have inspired me to try hard to make time again. I love the looseness and playful factor of your work! Pick me! Choose me! Help me!

  22. I want to learn watercolor texture because I like to 'crawl' into my art to create and come out and let everyone know how good it felt!!

  28. I have enjoyed your blog very much. I am working on taking better care of my emotional self. Part of that in an intentional goal to broaden my use of colored pencil, oil pastel, along with the pen and ink calligraphy work that I currently use in my Art Journal.

    I would especially love to learn, how you are able to combine water color on the go with art journaling. Watercolor is something I enjoy, but also find intimidating. Thank you for offering this online course. I hope I win the chance to take your course!

    Warmly, Ronda

  33. You must have been reading my mind when I saw you have used these techniques for stamping. I have just seen some fabulous ideas in Stampington's Art Quilting Studio, a back issue using acrylics/watercolors to paint on muslin making to-die-for ethereal pages for a cloth journal. So, with that in mind, I will be using these secret techniques you are sharing in this course to make cloth journal pages.

  34. Hi Miriam, I have recently resigned after years working as a counsellor in the field of family violence. I hit the "burnout" wall pretty hard and now I'm looking to learn fun, new ways to be creative. I have never really tried watercolours (except for a few cards I tried to make) but I have always wanted to learn. Thank You!

  43. I'm putting myself out there too 🙂 I'm a "senior" and have purchased a set of watercolors. I am on a retirement pension and have to watch the pennies. I've watched a few of your YouTube videos and to take one of your courses would be absolutely thrilling and a big help 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win.

  45. I love getting your emails. I happen to be exploring with watercolors now. I would love to win this class with you….it's perfect timing actually as I'm ready to expand on new techniques. Working in acrylics I thought this would be easy. I am finding that watercolors is completely different and I have enjoyed this experience and feel like I'm learning sooo much more than I anticipated! Such fun!! Thank you for your inspiration and sharing your talents❤️

  46. Thanks for the opportunity to "win" one of your classes. Having taken 2 classes from you already, I KNOW that this one will be a winner! Any tricks I can learn can only benefit me in the long run. I find that when you learn the right way how to do something that your product always comes out 100% better. Please pick me! Thanks for your consideration. BTW two of the Crazy Cats I painted for my hairdresser (her Maine coon cats) came out so well that she was thrilled to receive them as gifts. Yay!

  47. Miriam…I so respect how challenging it is for artists offering their heart and soul in an on-line class. If your demo videos are any indication of what a student can learn from you, it would be such an honor to study under your direction. As far as watercolor is concerned, I'm drawn to the medium; it's so delicate but at the same time, so bold. But as far as my "talent" (giggle, giggle, super snort) is concerned, I'm clueless about how to manage this paint. I tend to use the colors I have in my fancy WC set full strength and I'm afraid to do any mixing at all! I absolutely am in awe of your tulips loving their vibrancy and your sense of movement. I'd love to develop the confidence to take my palette on the run and create eye-catching watercolor wonders!

  48. I love the look of watercolor & I love working with this medium. There are "tricks" for working with any medium, & it's wonderful to have those things pointed out in a class.

  51. I've dappled in WC a little, but lack the skills to take it to the next level. My paintings lack something and would love to learn what that is so I can create works Like the ones that inspire me to keep trying. I've recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, along with adrenal fatigue. ( stage 3 ! ) so I need to listen to my what my body is telling me and mainly rest/ de-stress for a few months. Will need something to pass the time while I'm laid up and WC will work well.

  60. Twenty some years ago, in my fifties, I picked up watercolors and so began my amazing art journey. Without formal education, I explored and found myself crossing a variety of mediums. Recently I have returned to watercolors and I'd love to take your online class to kick-start this chapter!!

  61. I have just recently become obsessed with watercoloring and am dying to learn as many different techniques as I can. I saw the title to the blog post and it made me look twice. Once I saw that it was for a watercolor class I knew I had to throw my name into the hat because it would be a dream come true to learn these techniques so soon. I love doing Nature scenes and would love to be able to realistically paint the textures that Nature provides. Thank you so much for the chance to be able to! I will be anxiously awaiting the announcement of the two lucky winners hoping to see my name as one of them! Fingers crossed tightly!
