WHO TEACHES THE WORKSHOP?
Suzanne is a Dutch watercolorist who found her passion a couple of years ago in watercolor painting. It has helped her to relax, let go of her perfectionism and to find a balance between private and work. It gives a lot of joy, peace, satisfaction and especially a clear mind, which many people have quite some trouble with. After having immersed herself in all the ins and outs of this medium, she likes to share her knowledge with others. How beautiful is it to learn a new skill that can help you truly relax and at the same time develop your creativity?! With watercolor painting, you create something tangible which will give you a satisfactory and proud feeling. In the past years, she has taught many people watercoloring, from IT developers to space engineers, lawyers, and bankers. Men and women who thought they couldn’t draw/paint, but watercolor painting is something EVERYBODY can do. It may seem difficult, but everyone can learn it!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You will receive a link to the online workshop space (e.g. Zoom/Google Meet) an hour before the workshop starts and you can just sit down ready with your laptop/tablet and supplies in the comfort of your own home. I will guide you through the basics of watercolor painting live, so yo are going to paint yourself with my guidance and you’re able to ask questions.
When you buy this workshop, you’ll receive an extensive supply list with the supplies you can buy in your own country, which is in the basic: a watercolor brush, watercolor paper and watercolor paints. I realize most art supply shops are closed, so I will also add direct product links to webshops like Amazon or Bol.com (in the Netherlands), so you can directly buy supplies online. You can also work with the supplies you already have at home and practice again after the workshop when you’ve been able to buy recommended supplies.
If you live in The Netherlands, you can buy a custom made Watercolor Starter kit here, that includes all the needed materials and Beginners Watercolor Guide by me!
I’ll make sure you get a link with the recording afterward, so you can follow it again (for a limited time) – for example when you don’t have the right supplies yet at home.
Definitely! Most of the participants of the Watercolor Beginners Crash Course don’t have experience with drawing or painting and this is not needed, because everyone can watercolor! You will be guided through all the basics and you cannot do it ‘wrong’, so you don’t have to be afraid. Just take that step out of your comfort zone and try something new! Like Henri Matisse says: “Creativity takes courage”.
Watercolor is soothing, you can properly empty your head during watercoloring. In addition, you ‘create’ something tangible, which often gives a satisfactory and proud feeling. You also learn to let go of perfectionism with watercolor (‘overwork’ your painting often makes it less beautiful, you will have to ‘let go’ as much as possible and let the water and pigment do their work) and the best thing is that a watercolor painting doesn’t have to be perfect, the end result is often very different than you might think. Also a plus with watercolor: it is very compact, you need little space!
When you order, you can pay by PayPal, Creditcard or iDeal (for Dutch citizens).
