About This Course

My goal as a professional artist is not to produce skilled and competent paintings. The word “competent” is boring to me. I want my paintings to show ME; my heart, my emotions, the things that bring me deep joy and fulfillment.

I have learned that I do this best by creating a joyful, playful space to create; one that allows me to attune myself to what is happening on the paper and respond intuitively. It’s an approach that is very immediate, and very fluid, and it’s so much fun. I get to paint for fun, and I don’t think that idea should only be for advanced artists!

We rob beginners of joy when we tell them garbage like, “Watercolor is the hardest medium,” and “You can’t fix mistakes in watercolor.” It’s like we are planning for failure!

So I’ve decided to change the way I teach beginning painters how to paint, and I’d love you to come with me for this series of lessons designed to help the heart-led beginning painter create a joyful, intuitive learning process. Yes, watercolor techniques will be taught, but our focus will start with the PROCESS, making painting a healing, inspiring place of self-care and acceptance. Join me in learning watercolor the heart-guided way!

What if heart-led watercolor could be the starting point, instead of introduced as an intermediate transition toward a personal loose style?

It can be done! If you're yearning to paint in a loose, intuitive style, you can choose a path that encourages that kind of playful creativity from the very beginning of your watercolor journey. Let me guide you as you learn how to paint loose watercolors that flow from the heart.

What Students Say

This whole class has been so helpful, it is a great summary of basics, presented so clearly and transparent and many hints about techniques and our relationship to the painting. I am very much convinced that this course bring me an important step further and will allow me to have much more fun painting.

Based on my own experience I have to say, this is not only a beginner course. Thanks, Angela, it is a heart led course. I can feel very clearly how important is for you to transmit your experience!
