Learn to paint trees with confidence, twice! with two lessons and two basic watercolor techniques.
This course will give you realistic trees the first time and every time for beginners on up. With simple, step by step directions, you can quickly master these skills and see your trees improve overnight. Free bonus section for each skill with additional exercises and videos for more practice and paintings.
Lesson 1 uses scraping for birch trees that seem to paint themselves for a simple but charming snow scene. Create gift cards while learning valuable basic skills. Estimated 1 to 2 hours to complete.
Lesson 2 combines sponging, masking and beautiful fall colors for elegant white aspen trees in a quick, easy painting. Estimated 1 to 3 hours to complete.
These were the two most popular lessons from 2016. Students loved how easy it was to create beautiful paintings to hang in their homes, impress their friends, win awards and even sell! (One student took first and second place at a local art show with her birch paintings.)

Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher
My story is simple.
I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.
Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).
My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.
Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!
