I’m Paul Paul Hewson and I love teaching beginners to paint in watercolour. I believe everyone can learn to draw and paint. If you want to learn, then I can show you with a simple step by step approach.

I use a restricted palette of eight colours and four different sized paint brushes. Using a black & white photo for reference, we first draw a tonal sketch. We then redraw the subject as a line drawing on watercolour paper.

I then show you how to mix the colours and apply them using different brush techniques.

You have probably tried learning from books or watching videos, but this way is much better because if you do not understand something you just ask me.
