Your Tutor
George Boyter is a professional watercolour artist and teacher.
“ This course is for someone who really wants to learn how to paint in watercolour. That’s what I was 5 years ago when I committed to my ambition to become an artist. I sought out the 2 most renowned watercolour masters in the world and spent time with them on intensive courses. I watched, listened and learned intently. I took their advice and adopted their teaching methods and painted as frequently as I could. Learning never stops of course, it simply becomes a joy - as does painting. This course delivers the essential fundamental building blocks so that you can become the artist you aspire to be.”

"You are an amazing teacher and I am enjoying it all so much!"
Elizabeth Glover
