Hello and thanks for looking at my “Enchanted Castle” watercolors course.
My name is David Walker,I have been a professional artist for over 30 years painting mainly in watercolor.
Over the years I have done many live tutorials all around the U.K. and I now teach to a worldwide audience with Udemy.
This course is inspired by the beautiful Gwrych Castle which is about 2 miles away from where I live in North Wales.Photographs can’t project the actual feel of a place like watercolor paint can and in this course I show you how to use your photo snaps to make a stunning watercolor painting.
The course lasts about one and half hours and it is broken down into managable sections,there is also a sped up time lapse version so you can get an idea of what is coming in the full version and there is a high quality download of each picture for you to use as reference.
I mainly use the “Hake” brush and a flat 15 mm brush and just 7 colors ,if you are not familiar with the Hake brush,there is a full free preview in the preview section where you can see a half hour video all about this fantastic brush.
There is also a free “tools required” video in the preview section which tells you what tools you need to do this course.
The painting is done in real time so I can not go back and re film something if there is a problem,this is what appeals to me as an artist,I have to think on the spot and if there is an accident on the painting I have to sort it out there and then,so if you hear my dog grumbling in the background or the seagulls raiding my bins or me putting my brush into my coffee instead of my water,please bare with me,it is all part of the fun which,watercolor painting should be.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have,see you soon,
