Welcome to the loose ladies classroom!
These lovely ladies are such a pleasure and joy to create! You get to be totally free and loose in your style, and there is no pressure for it all to be perfect! …yet that’s just what you end up with – a perfectly gorgeous lady 🙂
Remember these are “wobbly and wonky” ladies (and birds!), they are meant to be uneven, with loose drips and splots of colour and bits of wobbly lines and dots here and there. It may take a bit of practice, and you can do that first on some scrap paper if you choose, but I know you will get there and you will love the process, it is indeed fun!
Now let’s get on with it – these lovely ladies are waiting for you!

I have a private facebook group for all of my classes “a journey for the soul”. Here you can share your artwork with others taking my classes, and gain feedback and ask questions.
I will add or invite you to the group after you join the class.
(If your paypal email and facebook email are different please message me as sometimes it is difficult to join the group as it is a secret group.)
This video is all about the supplies we will use, plus I show you how to mount your watercolour paper – if you choose to, it is not a necessity to do this 🙂 …but it sure helps with all that warping and bubbling!
Scroll to the bottom of this page where you will find the link to the lesson videos.
Please use what you already have in your collection. The items below are what I have used in this class.
- Assorted watercolour paints (tubes or pans)
- Large round watercolour brush – I use this type in size 18
- Black fineline pen, I use Staedtler Pigment Liner size 0.5, 1.0 and 1.2. Other brands available are Sakura Pigma Micron and Artline Drawing System.
- Watercolour paper A4 size (21×29.7cm) cut in half lengthwise – I use cold press paper 300gsm or 225gsm – you can use any kind or size you prefer however a smooth surface works best (if your paper has a rough surface, turn it over, often the back is smoother and works just as well – this is what I often do).
- 4×12″ stretched canvas (optional for lesson 4)
- paper towel
Optional Items – In the SUPPLIES VIDEO I show you how to mount your watercolour paper on a firm substrate, you can choose to do this or just work straight on your paper without any backing, or in a journal.
- Gel medium (matte or gloss will work)
- brayer – large
- large brush for gel medium
- substrate to glue paper too – I use foam core board, timber panel, or stretched canvas, any of these will work.
The video’s have been broken down into short intervals. Please work at your own pace.
There is no need to hurry. You have access to this class indefinitely so relax and enjoy the creative process!
