Online | Portrait Painting Made Easy | Watercolours with Susie Murphie

Course overview

A class for watercolour painters who would love to learn how to paint portraits from photographs, simply.

In Susie’s classes, you will learn how to keep watercolours transparent and beautiful. This method will give you the essential techniques to tackle all sorts of subjects with confidence.

Students will work from reference photos so please bring along your favourite photos or use Susie’s reference material.

Is this course right for me?

While all levels of artists are welcome, some prior experience with watercolours is recommended to get the most out of this class. Students should have at least attended a beginner watercolour workshop.
