Learn Botanical Watercolour Painting at Home


The class was okay. The teacher was kind and patient with the large class. Maybe less botanical watercolours and more very basic introduction to using water colour.

Painting workshop review by Matilda Hillam


Reply from this teacher:

Thanks for your feedback, the class is designed based on the majority of the students are complete beginners. The reason to include the essentials basic techniques are from my past experiences that students won’t be able to achieve “painting” without the basic fundamentals.
This class is focused on basic techniques through botanical elements as described in listing, however I’m sorry to hear that if it didn’t suit your need :)
