What’s The Right Watercolor Paper For My Watercolor Zoom Classes?

I personally love Arches 100% cotton paper 300gsm in 20 sheet blocks The downside is it’s expensive. It’s partly down to personal preference but if you’re just starting out with watercolors it doesn’t help at all when you have paper that you’re too too terrified to paint on! I know that feeling and it’s not conducive to fun and experimentation, so I would personally recommend Bockingford which is a good quality reasonably priced paper.
As a general rule with watercolor paper 100% cotton is better than wood pulp paper but having said that, I have also got good results from Reeves which is a wood pulp paper. It’s a bit harder to work with as it tends not to absorb the water so well but definitely usable.

Watercolor Zoom Class Video

Here’s a short ten minute clip from one of my watercolor Zoom classes. In this class, I demonstrated some essential watercolor techniques such as flat washes, glazes, and lifting out and then demonstrated how you might use these techniques in an actual painting. In this case, a seascape scene painted from a photograph that I took.

Got a Question? Contact Me


How much watercolor painting experience do I need to have for the classes?

These classes are aimed at the beginner watercolor painter so I approach each class with the assumption that you have little to no watercolor painting experience.

What will I learn in these classes?

We will cover a variety of subjects such as landscapes, seascapes and useful watercolor techniques. I’m also happy to take suggestions for whatever you’d like to do.

Is it necessary for me to attend every class?

Each class is a stand alone class and does not require knowledge of what was done in previous classes.

What if I miss a class?

I record every session and make it available as a download only to the students who were enrolled in that class. So, If you are unable to attend a class you will still be able to watch it.
