How does this course work?

In my experience beginner artists often feel uncertain about using colour; which colours to use, how to mix them and how to achieve a natural look. It’s really quite simple once you know how. There are universal laws which once known, support you to create beautiful, full colour work that mirrors the world around you. In this course I show you how with artist quality coloured pencils.

Some drawing experience is recommended as you will be applying colour to line drawings but I do give drawing tips for those of you who have no drawing experience and want to give it a go.

 If you’ve done my line and tone drawing for beginner’s courses you will be ideally equipped to soak up colour theory.;-)


What do I get in this course?

  • Access to my Mindfulness and creativity audio.
  • Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and exercises that show you how to apply colour.
  • Pictures drawn by me for you to copy.
  • Email feedback when you need it. This is the same material I teach in my face to face classes and workshops and I have years of experience with beginners. I understand the uncertainty and doubts you may feel and have provided strategies to keep you on track and motivated because I also know the rewards and the magic!
  • You get access to my private Facebook group where students can chat, upload drawings and become part of an inspiring and supportive online creative community.
  • I am never negative or judgemental; my mission is to extend you and to give you techniques that enable your learning. I’m here to support you and to help you be your very own greatest supporter!
