WATERCOLOUR COURSES & WORKSHOPS

Try it for yourself – Learn how to paint – with a little help from me!

My studio is situated in rural Andalusia, Spain. My watercolour lessons are relaxed but informative, professional but fun.  My studio-based courses cater for only one student at a time, meaning you get individual attention and watercolour tuition tailored solely to your needs and skill level.
