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!"
“George’s teaching style is relaxed, friendly, engrossing and informative far beyond expectations.When demonstrating how to design, execute and complete a painting using this complicated medium, George is first class. I would recommend George without hesitation.”

Good introduction into how the medium works. Lots of information to absorb and take on board, then play with. Looking forward to the next steps and getting a better understanding of water colour.
Very interesting 1st lesson, I learnt a lot about the medium of water in a way that I never would have imagined. Basically that the water is in charge and it is up to the pupil to exploit that. Using the will of the water to achieve the desired effect. Really looking forward to next week.
