“I can barely draw. Can I really do this?”
Here’s the thing about watercolor painting: you don’t have to be born with some innate talent to produce beautiful artwork.
All you need is a basic understanding of watercolor techniques, a few minutes per day to practice, and the ability to enjoy the process (no matter the outcome). Which is exactly what you’ll learn inside Paint to Paper.
Here’s a look at what we’ll cover inside
Paint to Paper…
The right brush makes all the difference when you’re painting with watercolor. And so does knowing how to use it. In the first step, you’ll learn:
- What to look for when choosing the right brush for your watercolor project
- Various painting techniques that will help you feel more comfortable with your paintbrush
- How to discover the hidden power of your brush so you can set yourself up for creative success from the start
You might think the more watercolors you have in your set, the better your art will be. But that’s simply not true! In the second step, you’ll learn:
- How to use water to create different shades of the same color
- An easy way to create a rainbow of colors, even with a limited watercolor palette
- Why it’s important to use high-quality paints (and how you can invest in them without breaking the bank)
Balancing Your Water
One of the biggest misconceptions about watercolor is that it’s hard to control. It’s actually quite easy to control; you just need the right balance of water. Step 3 will help you find that perfect balance by showing you:
- The different stages of water application and how they affect your finished artwork
- How to remove excess water from your paper without ruining everything
- Techniques that will help you control the water on your brush and paper
Tracing Your Outline
It’s easy to give up on your creative hobbies when you don’t feel inspired. Or when you’re not really sure what you want to paint.
But the thing about art is that it doesn’t always need to have a BIG purpose. Sometimes, just the act of putting paint to paper is enough to get your creative ideas flowing.
In step four, you’ll get rid of “painter’s block” by tracing the outline for your first painting. And no, this isn’t cheating. Tracing your image first will make the painting process so much more easy and fun!

“Mako’s approach and techniques really appeal to me. She’s warm, welcoming, natural, nurturing, friendly, and fun...”
A note from your instructor...
Hey, I’m Mako!
Artist, teacher, and host of the Paint to Paper.
Not only am I passionate about watercolor painting, but I also love helping others add joy, peace, and excitement to their lives through a creative hobby.
I know what it’s like to be a “beginner and growing” artist.
To go through spurts of insane inspiration as well as days or even weeks when I wouldn’t pick up a brush. Tossing out more paintings than I kept. Feeling confused but unsure of where to go for answers.
But one thing I didn’t do was let my disappointments get in the way of something I love...being creative.
It wasn’t until I started investing in myself, that I gained the skills and confidence that made me the artist I am today.
So whether you’re brand new to watercolor painting or you’ve been dabbling in it for years, this course will help you establish foundational watercolor techniques that will transform your artistic confidence and creativity!
Can't wait to see you inside the course!Yes! I'm ready to join!
