"This is ABSOLUTELY the best water color course that I have ever seen!!!!!!! And believe me I have searched! I was one of those "I can't do that" people, BUT NOT ANYMORE! I would easily give this 10 stars if I could!!!" ~ David Martinez

Have you ever tried “painting with water” before?

Do you want to learn how to make fun, colorful, translucent watercolor paintings?

It's simpler than you think!

Watercolor is a FUN way to paint!

It can swirl and drip, blend and bleed, all of this randomness and free flow,

believe it or not,

can make painting effortless and

open up many possibilities for your creativity to flow.

It can push you out of your comfort zone

and it can also pull you in to the moment.

It’s the only medium that can paint a painting with you.

What that means is,

you apply the paint and let the water do the rest.

How cool is that?!

WHO AM I?

Hey there! Broderick here and I paint in watercolor professionally,

from simple character designs, to realism, to fun art, even fine art pieces hanging in Museums in Europe.

  • I’ve been a featured artist for a major art supply chain (Youtube: “urban sketching broderick wong”)

  • Social media loves my quirky watercolor pet portraits (Google: “vancouver is awesome broderick wong”)

  • Placed first in live watercolor painting competitions (2016 Harmony Festival Plein Air Champion ; 2018 Grand Prix Plein Air Masters Division Champion)

  • The Fabriano InAcquarello 2020, an international watercolor painting conference hosted in Italy,

    invited me to do an online painting demonstration as an international artist. (Google: "inarte fabriano 2020 brod wong”)

  • I've led live watercolor painting workshops for people who have never picked up a brush before

WHY LEARN FROM ME?

When I started, I knew absolutely nothing about painting or watercolor.

I was doing only black and white portraiture,

but I knew that if I wanted to challenge myself and grow,

I needed to learn color:

1) I played with watercolor, but it did everything except what I wanted it to

2) I experimented with acrylics, but it dried too quickly

3) Oils, well, it didn't dry fast enough

I got frustrated.

Everything I tried just wasn’t for me.

After 1 year, I gave watercolor another chance, but this time, I approached it differently.

I learned from books and non-instructional YouTube videos that I played over and over again

because I couldn’t find any instructors to guide me.

I had to figure it out on my own.

I ruined many watercolor paintings and didn’t know how to do them differently.

I experienced many happy accidents, but didn’t know how to recreate them successfully.

I persevered and took a handful of workshops and,

over a brief period, I developed a certain fluency in “reading” watercolor.

Watercolor has taught me so much about art, about myself, even about life!

This is why watercolor to me, is for life.

To anyone out there who has tried learning on their own but needs more guidance,

to those who have tried their hand at it and need a fresh way of approaching their workflow,

to those that don't even have any art background and are looking to try something new,

I've been there, and I got you covered.

Fast forward to today, if I could have kick-started a path to success for myself to follow,

to learn watercolor painting quicker without making so many mistakes, what would that look like?

Through my experience in teaching myself and others,

I have peeled away those layers to its core essence,

and it is with this awareness that I present to you:

Watercolor Painting for Beginners

I’m excited to help you learn to create watercolor paintings you could be proud of!

"Only 5 lessons into this course and I love it! Broderick's videos are fun and informative! The videos have already addressed some of the frustrations I have experienced with watercolors in the past. I am feeling more confident in the fact that I can learn to use watercolors and all the different types of materials available. Excited for this course! Thank you Broderick for sharing what you learned from your own journey with watercolors!" ~ Jade Napier

                                                                                           ~o~

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Whether you've never picked up a brush before, or if you’re hoping to understand the medium better,

you'll want to finally learn watercolor the way it's meant to be used.

ARE YOU AN ABSOLUTE BEGINNER?

Are you looking for a new hobby,

or maybe you’ve gathered a collection of watercolor supplies but haven't found the time or courage to paint

or maybe you’re looking for a break from other more career goal oriented courses?

  • Are you concerned about buying more than you need or can afford?

  • Do you learn best through casual conversations instead of formal lectures?

  • Would you appreciate tips, reminders, directing you through exercises every step of the way?

With watercolor, you don't need a lot of materials to start painting.

I recommend a few decent materials that are not crazy expensive nor are they sub-par-quality cheap.

I've also designed Watercolor Painting for Beginners to be sequential,

which means, steps from previous lessons are seamlessly incorporated with the new.

"I've dabbled in watercolours for years, going to night classes etc and really felt a bit flummoxed by the medium. This course broke it all down into bite size chunks that are really fun to do and I'm learning more per half hour than i did in 20 hrs flailing around on my own. Very good teaching." ~ Susan Kuchenberg

ARE YOU AN “ON AND OFF” PAINTER?

You've tried watercolor but find it difficult to control, you may need a refresher on watercolor or maybe you need direction because you seem to choose the wrong and complicated things to paint?

  • Would you appreciate hearing what artists think as they paint?

  • Do you find painting the same thing over and over boring and tiresome?

  • Do you appreciate some background information about watercolor, and a progressive build up of technique and application?

If you've painted before, pay special attention to the first 2 lessons. It will provide more structure to the way you paint, so you avoid guesswork or uncertainty, catapulting your confidence to paint with more intention. No matter what your style is, what you learn is essential.

READY TO GO OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW?

"The course is a lot of fun and I'm learning a ton, enjoying the balance of a lot of hands-on to "lecture." There's a lot of focus on fundamentals which seems exactly what is needed, and the extensive practice is helping. Believe Broderick when he says do not use student-grade paints! Cheap paints held me back with streaks and blobs I could not control until going out and getting some better paints...and a lot of my "sloppiness" suddenly improved." ~ George Rogers

                                                                                          ~o~

THE PROBLEM WITH LEARNING

There are watercolor painting classes out there that use up hours on soul-crushing lectures and theory

before putting brush to paper and when you finally do, it's all about repetitive drills,

forgettable color chart and swatch exercises,

demoralizing activities that are too mediocre or too complex,

random techniques without understanding why,

leaving you with so much playing, experimenting and accidents,

but still not knowing how to properly apply the knowledge in a practical way.

I'm here to show you that learning doesn't have to be mind-numbing.

Seriously. You just need the right guidance.

WATERCOLOR PAINTING FOR BEGINNERS

1) SHORT LASER-FOCUSED LESSONS

My Watercolor Painting For Beginners course does not involve a bowl of fruit, numerous lectures, drills and excruciating repetition.

My live watercolor painting workshops have given me the opportunity to target and isolate very specific challenges about the painting process,

from a learner’s point of view, and then break them down into short laser-focused lessons.

I found that these challenges are multi-layered and overlapping,

making it difficult to know where to begin.

This is why you may feel you’re taking 2 steps forward and 4 steps back.

My Watercolor Painting For Beginners course peels away those layers,

then simplifies them into short focused lessons,

allowing you to learn only what you need to know at that time, to get you to the next level.

Succeeding lessons will have their own short, focused sessions that gradually build on top of the previous.

2) LEARN WITHOUT THE INFORMATION OVERLOAD

● I’ve distilled traditional art theory & practice into their fundamental essence

● I use easy to understand language (aka no artsy fartsy terminologies)

● I thoughtfully produce my material and content: Straight to the point. No extra fluff.

3) SEQUENTIAL LEARNING

The way information is presented, oddly enough, has an enormous impact on what you learn,

how fast you learn and how you apply it. (Sometimes whether you learn at all!)

I designed this course to build new information on top of what you already know. Think Lego.

● New lessons introduce new techniques & reinforce what you learned in previous lessons

● Lessons include carefully designed activities to match the skill level

● Lessons are concise but packed with only relevant information

"Thank you so very much Broderick and also for this really great course. I think the biggest improvement is regarding the confidence. I'm way more at ease when painting now, at least with the style we have practised here. I don't feel stress or anxious and I think I'm more patient. :-)" ~ Dennies Goldau

4) NO SECOND GUESSING!

Knowing differs from understanding.

Random tips and tricks are good for 1-time activities,

but have you tried painting something else after

and felt like it sent you straight back to kindergarten?

I've been there before. (A few times actually. Sigh.)

You need a stronger foundation to fall back on.

Understanding what you’re doing with your watercolor will take you much further.

● Too much control = Overworked, muddy paintings

● Too much spontaneity = One big-happy-accident-type-of-paintings

● Controlled spontaneity = Fresh, glowing, transparent paintings

5) LET GO OF THE FEAR OF STARTING

“I need to tidy up my work space”

“Those plants look like they need a little drink today”

“The cat needs…another bath!”

The fear of uncertainty encourages procrastination.

What if I told you one tip you can do to sidestep your hesitation?

(And no, it doesn’t involve sticking notes with the words “Let It Go” all over the place.)

They say that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.

What if I told you that the shortest distance between

staring at a blank paper and actually painting on it

are only 4 dots, would you give it a try?

Learn my 4 Strengths Method.

This is a complete GAME CHANGER, one that I personally use

to ensure that I paint with more confidence, minimize any rework and overcome any initial hesitation.

That small piece of awareness was so valuable and so well put together! The whole course must be a goldmine!! ~ Lara Marchionni-Jones

6) HAVE FUN WHILE YOU LEARN!

There’s painting for fun, and then there’s painting to learn while having fun.

The course videos are professionally produced to educate and entertain.

This balance ensures a variety of presentations, instruction, humor and pacing!

● Painting for fun = Just playing with paints, there is not much technique to take away.

● Painting to learn = Heavy on theory and drills.

● Painting to learn while having fun equips you with what you need to know, right away, so you can enjoy the watercolor painting process more.

                                                                                          ~o~

HOW ELSE CAN I HELP YOU?

I’m here to help you think like water.

The more you understand, the less uncertainty there is, the more excited you will be to paint.

You will first learn how to control your watercolor.

Then I’ll show you how to use water and let it do what it wants.

This is what I call, Controlled Spontaneity: A give and take between you and the watercolor.

You will learn how to use water, to do different techniques, such as smooth washes, blending, glazing, color mixing, and so much more.

Q1: I don’t have strong drawing skills, should I take a drawing class first?

You don’t need to know how to draw.

Since the focus of the lessons are about painting and not drawing,

I will teach you a quick and easy way to sketch (that even kids can do!)

so you can start painting right away.

Q2: I had done so little watercolour painting before and I quit from frustration. “What makes your course different from others?”

"This course was exactly what I needed! I always wanted to try watercolor for a long time, but all those free tutorials on YouTube just kept me confused. But, in this course, Brod breaks it down into small sizable activities without any fluff, just like how it is said in the description. All in all, I'm really happy with this course and I'm surely looking forward to the wet-on-wet course that's coming up!" ~ Manu

My course is professionally produced:

● All videos are shot in high definition

● Over the head shots showing my entire set up

● Close-up shots for color mixing

● Clear and consistent audio/commentary

● Combination of energetic and relaxed pacing

● Casual conversations instead of formal lectures

● Receive the information in small segments. No over explaining.

● Animation/Visual Cues to let you know where I want you to focus on

● Fun activities with new challenges in each lesson to build up technique and application

You will learn my 4 Strengths Method, a complete GAME CHANGER that will jump start the way you paint, right after the 2nd lesson.

This course includes everything that I teach in my live workshops,

combining 2 of my workshops ($400 total value) plus access to additional,

bonus paint along videos to get more practice after the course.

If you’ve taken different classes before but still have a hard time controlling watercolor,

my Watercolor Painting for Beginners course can help.

This is not your typical, traditional course.

My live watercolor painting workshops have allowed me to refine the lessons into what they are today,

breaking down the watercolor process even more into its most essential concepts.

I did notice a difference - increased confidence. I realize I need to take my time, pay attention, look, plan, especially mixing enough paint, adding colour to the puddle in small increments.. Thinking about the colours & water control was also useful. Each of the steps you covered were so helpful. - Helen O’Neill

Q3: Things are quite busy with work/kids/life. What if I don’t finish the lesson?

These lessons are available anytime you need them, wherever you are in the world.

Learn at your own pace as long as you have a computer and an internet connection.

                                                                                          ~o~

So, are you ready to finally start CREATING your very own beautiful watercolor painting instead of just admiring the work of others?

Then enroll now! I can’t wait to help you create your amazing paintings with color & water.

This is by far the best course I've taken on Udemy. The instructor is engaging, knowledgeable, and the information is both fun and informative. I'm SO impressed and excited I signed up for this course! Thank you!!! <3 ~ Cynthia Hauk

Do you find that your paintings seldom finish off looking good? Or do you abandon your painting halfway because nothing is looking right? Scraping back the paint in frustration only to abandon the painting is annoying. Not to mention a waste of time and money.

The solution in many cases is what you do even before you begin painting. It is all about the preparation and start where the real outcome is usually determined.

Any professional will tell you that there are a thousand ways to paint your picture and ruin it too. But most agree that getting the painting off to a great start is critical Step One

That is why I decided to create this short course with a focus on the start. This course is based on part of my Learn to Impact Master Course. The latter has much more detail should you want to take your learning to the next level.

The Secret to Your Painting Success will give you much information and practical tips that you can try out now with your next painting. Make that step up in your painting before moving onto more complicated techniques.

You will need the following materials:

  1. The primary colors and white (oils or acrylics)
  2. A canvas or painting panel
  3. Brushes - #6 bristle
  4. Medium or white spirits
  5. Paper towel
  6. Pencil and A5 sketchbook
  7. Black marker pen (thick wedge shaped tip)

I look forward to meeting you on the course!

Students: 11487, Price:  Paid

The Complete Environment Painting Super Course will give you a total introduction to digital painting landscapes and environments. Or your money back.

Throughout this course, you’ll be taught the art and design skills you always wanted to learn. Whether you’re just learning as a hobbyist, or you plan on becoming a professional digital illustrator or concept artist. This is the perfect course for you.

Throughout this course you’ll be going through over 13 hours of live narrated content, over 30 lectures, and 55 downloadable resources. First I’ll be bringing you through the very basics of perspective, then shading and rendering, and finally drawing and painting your very own beautiful scenes and backgrounds from scratch.

Here’s what you’ll get in this course:

  • Instant access to all 30 lectures, in 7 sections.

  • over 13 hours of live, narrated content where I’ll be bringing you through every step in real time.

  • Full money back guarantee within 30 days of purchasing the course!

The course is laid out in an easy to understand format:

  • First I’ll be teaching you the fundamentals of perspective. We’ll go through 1 and 2 point perspective, offering the same assignments that I had when I was a student in some of the top design schools.

  • After that, I’ll be teaching you the importance of lighting and how to shade and render the basic elements that create everything. Spheres, Cubes, Cones, and Cylinders. These are the elements that make up almost everything around us.

  • Next you’ll be learning about color theory and which colors to choose for your shadows and lights. Color is an essential part of establishing the mood in a painting.

  • After this you’ll be combining the basic forms in order to bring what we’ve learned so far together and make some recognizable scenes.

  • Next we move on to jumping straight into building our first scene. You’ll start by drawing out a line work and setting up the perspective exactly how I taught you in the perspective lessons. We’ll focus on composition and object placement to make the most of the space in our canvas. Focusing heavily on setting up our image to achieve a feeling of depth, which is one of the most important things in environment painting.

  • After this we refine the sketch to further enhance the idea. Redrawing it and making sure all of our elements are in place before painting.

  • Next we’ll begin by roughly painting the main colors in. Figuring out what color everything is as well as how things change color the further they get away. Applying what we learned earlier in the color theory into some real painting situations.

  • Lastly after we get the main elements of our painting established. Our colors in place, and everything set up. We’ll start detailing the painting and adding all the little elements that bring the painting to life. Painting grass, wood, fencing and trees.

  • In the next session we’ll do another line work. Starting rough and working cleaner. I’ll teach you to draw on top of a 3 point perspective grid.

  • This painting will be started by first finding all of our shadows before we start with colors. It’s important to know our shadows and lighting before we start adding details.

  • After this the next few hours are spent adding tons and tons of detail. I’ll be explaining how high detail images are really just a series of decisions made over and over and is actually quite simple. By the end of this section you’ll be a master of detail!

Throughout this entire course you’ll be learning:

  • How to use perspective and understand it

  • How to choose great and lively colors

  • How to render and shade objects realistically

  • Starting a sketch

  • Finishing a sketch

  • Starting a painting

  • finishing a painting

  • adding lots of details

  • tips and tricks on painting, drawing, environments, etc

  • tons of live narrated drawing

  • over 50 downloadable resources!

    The best watercolour course I have seen…I need a structured better approach than the typical watch-me-paint courses, that explain nothing about quality of paints and mediums and how they affect the final result. Brilliantly narrated, videos quality are amazing and super explanatory. 6 stars!" - Joao C.

    I am learning so much. It is really helping me to understand the medium I am working with, as well as how I can manipulate it to create the effects and emotions I want. Everything just changes when you know what you are looking for. My level of confidence in watercolour has definitely skyrocketed.” - Nicole O.

    "If you are looking for an engaging, fun and informative course, I would highly encourage you to sign up for this one! Broderick's teaching style is engaging, easy to follow and fun! I began painting in April 2020 after enrolling in a mixed media course on Udemy and fell in love with watercolors and inks. Since then, I've participated in several in-person workshops and other online classes/academies, and recently decided to give Udemy another go for watercolor painting. I found Broderick's Watercolor for Beginner's class and after watching the intro video I was hooked! About halfway through the beginner's course, I found this Next Level course and immediately enrolled. Both have been phenomenal and I am really enjoying his teaching and artistic style"  - Tiffany White

    Do you want to take your painting to the next level?

    The secret ingredient to improving the way you paint is...

    ...MORE water!

    Did you know that the same water you use to mix your paints with can be used as another tool in your watercolor toolbox?

    Using more water when your paint, can give your work a more organic look, with very little effort.

    You just need to set up the right conditions then, let the water do what it wants, and I'm here to show you how!

    WHO AM I?

    Hey there! Broderick here and I paint in watercolor professionally,

    from simple character designs, to realism, to fun art, even fine art pieces hanging in Museums in Europe.

    • I’ve been a featured artist for a major art supply chain (Youtube: “urban sketching broderick wong”)

    • Social media loves my quirky watercolor pet portraits (Google: “vancouver is awesome broderick wong”)

    • Placed first in live watercolor painting competitions (2016 Harmony Festival Plein Air Champion ; 2018 Grand Prix Plein Air Masters Division Champion)

    • The Fabriano InAcquarello 2020, an international watercolor painting conference hosted in Italy,

      invited me to do an online painting demonstration as an international artist. (Google: "inarte fabriano 2020 brod wong”)

    • I’m also the creator of Watercolors for beginners here on Udemy, a best seller course taken by over 9,000 people with over 400 reviews.

    Now I’m excited to show you how to take your watercolors and rise to the next level!

    WHY LEARN FROM ME?

    When I felt I knew enough, I wanted to paint everything, from landscapes to animals, to portraits and urban scenes, but I quickly realized that every step I took forward, I took 4 steps back. It was such a strange, unusual experience which made me rethink how I had been painting.

    I ruined many watercolor paintings trying to paint in a different style. I experienced many happy accidents, but didn’t know how to recreate them successfully. I persevered and took a handful of workshops and, over a brief period, I realized that there are levels to watercolors!

    Fast forward to today, if I could have kick-started a path to success for myself to follow, to learn watercolor painting quicker without making so many mistakes, what would that look like? Through my experience in teaching myself and others, I have found the one thing that unlocks the full potential of watercolors and it is with this awareness that I present to you:

    Watercolor Painting: Next Level Techniques and Water Effects

    "I really enjoyed the beginners course, and this one just takes off where the other left off. Already in the very first lesson I am learning something. I really enjoy this instructor's courses, its fun and informative, and would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in painting with watercolors." - Schantel Fick

                                                                                                      ~o~

    WHO IS THIS FOR?

    If you're comfortable with the basic rules of watercolor, then you're going to have fun breaking these rules

    and have the confidence to produce different effects that can't be achieved knowing the basics alone.

    READY TO PAINT DIFFERENTLY AND DIVE INTO SOMETHING NEW?

                                                                                                       ~o~

    THE PROBLEMS WITH LEARNING

    There are lots of materials that some would use, from salts to soaps, stamps to cellophane, from wax to markers, to metallic paints and colored pencils. While they can be used to produce different effects they can:

    • Be quite costly to buy

    • Affect the longevity of your painting

    • Take up so much space on your table

    • May compromise your development of proper technique and application

    MY SOLUTIONS TO LEARNING

    If I showed you an easier way to achieve more with less, using only water, does that sound good?

    You will learn special applications I developed that will help you control your water, then let go of that control, allowing the water to paint the painting with you. This gives your painting that fresh, fluid, “just painted” look even long after its dried. Using no extraneous materials, only water.

    My Watercolor Painting: Next Level Techniques and Water Effects course is all about painting Wet On Wet. What is Wet On Wet? Have a look at one the free preview videos to get a better idea of how to put the W.O.W. (Wet On Wet) in your paintings!

    • You will learn the difference between Wet on Dry and W.O.W. painting

    • There will be 4 new W.O.W. techniques, that you can look forward to, allowing you to control your water and let go of that control, to let the water paint the painting with you

    • My 4 Phases of Wetness will teach you how to intuitively know to keep on painting or when to stop

    • This course includes everything that I teach in my live Wet On Wet workshops, ($260 total value)

    • Additional, bonus paint along videos to get more practice after the course

    WHAT IS YOUR COURSE LIKE?

    If you’ve taken different classes before but still have a hard time controlling watercolor or painting loose, my Watercolor Painting: Next Level Techniques and Water Effects course can help:

    1) SHORT LASER-FOCUSED LESSONS

    My live watercolor painting workshops have given me the opportunity to target and isolate very specific challenges about the painting process,

    from a learner’s point of view, and then break them down into short laser-focused lessons.

    I found that these challenges are multi-layered and overlapping,

    making it difficult to know where to begin.

    This is why you may feel you’re taking 1 step forward and 4 steps back.

    My Watercolor Painting: Next Level Techniques and Water Effects course peels away those layers,

    then simplifies them into short focused lessons,

    allowing you to learn only what you need to know at that time, to get you to the next level.

    Succeeding lessons will have their own short, focused sessions that gradually build on top of the previous.

    2) LEARN WITHOUT THE INFORMATION OVERLOAD

    ● I’ve distilled traditional art theory & practice into their fundamental essence

    ● I use easy to understand language (aka no artsy fartsy terminologies)

    ● I thoughtfully produce my material and content: Straight to the point. No extra fluff.

    3) SEQUENTIAL LEARNING

    The way information is presented, oddly enough, has an enormous impact on what you learn,

    how fast you learn and how you apply it. (Sometimes whether you learn at all!)

    I designed this course to build new information on top of what you already know. Think Lego.

    ● New lessons introduce new techniques & reinforce what you learned in previous lessons

    ● Lessons include carefully designed activities to match the skill level

    ● Lessons are concise but packed with only relevant information

    "I'm glad I took this course. I've been frustrated trying to learn watercolors on my own. But because of this, I become even more excited with this medium. Thanks!" - Riamarie San Jose

    4) NO SECOND GUESSING!

    Knowing differs from understanding.

    Random tips and tricks are good for 1-time activities,

    but have you tried painting something else after

    and felt like it sent you straight back to kindergarten?

    I've been there before. (A few times actually. Sigh.)

    You need a stronger foundation to fall back on.

    Understanding what you’re doing with your watercolor will take you much further.

    ● Too much control = Overworked, muddy paintings

    ● Too much spontaneity = One big-happy-accident-type-of-paintings

    ● Controlled spontaneity = Fresh, glowing, transparent paintings

    5) LET GO OF THE FEAR OF STARTING

    “I need to tidy up my work space”

    “Those plants look like they need a little drink today”

    “The cat needs…another bath!”

    The fear of uncertainty encourages procrastination.

    What if I told you that all you need to do, is to just set up the right conditions and let the water paint it for you, would you give it a try?


    "I'm not even halfway through the course, but I have learned so much already about CONTROLLING the water in wet on wet watercolor painting. Thank you, Broderick! You are a masterful teacher." - Diana D

    6) HAVE FUN WHILE YOU LEARN!

    There’s painting for fun, and then there’s painting to learn while having fun.

    The course videos are professionally produced to educate and entertain.

    This balance ensures a variety of presentations, instruction, humor and pacing!

    ● Painting for fun = Just playing with paints, there is not much technique to take away.

    ● Painting to learn = Heavy on theory and drills.

    ● Painting to learn while having fun equips you with what you need to know, right away, so you can enjoy the watercolor painting process more.

                                                                                                         ~o~

    HOW ELSE CAN I HELP YOU?

    I’m here to help you think like water.

    The more you understand, the less uncertainty there is, the more excited you will be to paint.

    You will first learn how to control your watercolor.

    Then I’ll show you how to just let it do what it wants.

    This is what I call, Controlled Spontaneity: A give and take between you and the watercolor.

    You will learn how to use water, to do different wet on wet techniques, ones that are a far departure from beginner techniques.

    "Yes: this has been a good match.T The instructor is very clear with instructions. The video work is exceptional!!" - Jason Poole

    Q1: I don’t have strong drawing skills, should I take a drawing class first?

    You don’t need to know how to draw.

    Since the focus of the lessons are about painting and not drawing,

    I will teach you a quick and easy way to sketch (that even kids can do!)

    so you can start painting right away.

    Q2: I had done so little watercolor painting before and I quit from frustration. “What makes your course different from others?”

    My course is professionally produced:

    ● All videos are shot in high definition

    ● Over the head shots showing my entire set up

    ● Close-up shots for color mixing

    ● Clear and consistent audio/commentary

    ● Combination of energetic and relaxed pacing

    ● Casual conversations vs. formal lectures

    ● Receive the information in small segments. No over explaining.

    ● Animation/Visual Cues to let you know where I want you to focus on

    ● Fun activities with new challenges in each lesson to build up technique and application

    This is not your typical, traditional course.

    My live watercolor painting workshops have allowed me to refine the lessons into what they are today,

    breaking down the watercolor process even more into its most essential concepts.

    "I have taken a couple of Broderick’s past courses on Watercolor painting (beginner’s course on Udemy and another one via a different platform) and he is really a fantastic instructor. He exudes such high energy and is very enthusiastic that you can tell he is passionate about his art. This new course is as fun and educational as his previous ones. He takes the time to take his students step by step so you don’t ever get lost. He is clear in his explanations. His video taking is also not just static so we can see what he’s doing from different point of views and angles. He is also a very encouraging teacher and will assist offline if you have any questions. I’ve really been waiting to level up my Watercolor technique and I’m so excited to do this wet on wet method of painting with Broderick again." - Soozee Ang

    Q3: Things are quite busy with work/kids/life. What if I don’t finish the lesson?

    These lessons are available anytime you need them, wherever you are in the world.

    Learn at your own pace as long as you have a computer and an internet connection.

                                                                                                        ~o~

    So, are you ready to level up instead of painting happy accidents?

    Then enroll now! I can’t wait to help you put the W.O.W. In your paintings using only color & water!

    "Hasta el momento ha sido puramente introductorio pero las explicaciones son claras y las demostraciones excelsas. ¡Estoy ansioso de comenzar a practicar!" Elliot Iñaky González Rodríguez

    "Love watching your course B, I’m learning so much!! Wet on wet painting with watercolors has always been a mystery to me. My many unsuccessful attempts have left me wondering how artists consistently achieve these gorgeous, subtle, organic effects. He shares his method for painting these effects effortlessly and beautifully, step by step and makes it so much fun and memorable along the way. Sooo glad I will no longer be hoping for accidents that will go “right". Now I have a much better understanding of how to create the paintings I want thanks to his easy to understand method and clear explanations. Love his scientific explanations and little stories about his subjects, he is so engaging! Thanks Broderick, for unveiling the magical mysteries of wet on wet painting!!" - Caroline
