This class includes professionally edited video instruction, broken down into manageable chunks. The videos are supported with written content in the classroom. All videos are downloadable and the course comes with lifetime access. Scroll further down for the course curriculum including video duration.

Inside the course, you will ...

  • Learn two different approaches to painting your background.
  • Experiment with techniques for adding contrast and texture including etching, dripping, repetitive mark-making, doodling, finger painting and colour blocking.
  • Quieten down areas that have become too busy and get over the fear of covering things up.
  • Find inspiration in nature and work through creative challenges and blocks.
  • Become more confident in adding imagery to your work by practising on paper.
  • Use wet-in-wet techniques to create gorgeous flowy botanicals with acrylic ink.
  • Bring it all together, adding and subtracting elements until your paintings feel balanced. It's a process that takes practice and a willingness to play and experiment!

I love Laura’s teaching style and the techniques and information she imparts has grown my art practice immensely. Can’t wait for more classes!!
