Course Overview

In this class learn how to capture dogs (they key is in the eyes!) in watercolours. Please along your favourite photos for reference or use Susie’s reference material. In Susie’s classes, students learn tips and tricks for keeping watercolours transparent and beautiful. This method will give you the essential techniques to tackle all sorts of subjects with confidence. You will come away with a feeling of wonder and addiction to this extraordinary watery paint and be confident that you can tackle anything. Students will work from reference photos.

Is this course right for me

While all levels of artist are welcome, some prior experience with watercolours is recommended. Students should have at least attended a beginner watercolour workshop with Jane or Susie.

Student feedback

I am a big fan of Susie Murphie’s style of working with watercolours and she has been a big influence on my own work. Even though I am an experienced artist myself I always learn something from her workshops.
