Get On the Waitlist

By signing up for the waitlist, you'll get first dibs on important information about the course and early bird bonus offers.  

Instead of feeling relaxed and inspired when you paint, you feel frustrated because:

  • You can't figure out how to mix colors without everything turning into a muddied mess. 
  • You try to follow tutorials by other artists on YouTube, but your paintings never look like theirs, and you have no idea why.
  • You can't stay focused and sometimes go months without creating anything.

You have no idea what you're doing wrong or what to do next.

What do those other watercolor artists know that you don't? 

 

 

Want to know a secret?

You might think that being a successful artist is only possible for those born with some special talent.

The truth is, talent has nothing to do with it. 

Becoming skilled at watercolor painting comes from knowledge and practice.

When you understand the basics of color mixing, use the right supplies, and practice painting regularly, you too can produce artwork you're proud of and paint confidently without all the stress and frustration.

 

Introducing…

The Roadmap to Watercolor Painting

 

A comprehensive, step-by-step program where you'll learn about watercolor theory so you can consistently and confidently create artwork that you're proud of.  

This is so much more than lessons and painting tutorials. It's the foundation you need to become a skilled watercolor artist.

"I wanted to try watercolor for a long time but I was intimidated and I just kept procrastinating. This course put a stop to that. I can't think of a better introduction to watercolor for someone with little or no experience."

"Mako, thank you for creating this course! I've tried different types of art mediums, but never really developed confidence in any of them. With your watercolor course, I feel like I now have a strong foundation to build on and continue to practice and get better with my new watercolor painting skills. The structure of the course inspired me to make time each week to paint. I've gifted some of the pieces I’ve created to other people, and it was inspiring to receive compliments from them on my art!"
