Pip Carr reviewed: Watercolours for beginners online course, by Sarah Colgate

"This beginners watercolour course was excellent. Very detailed written instructions and very clear and methodical videos demonstrating the methods. A lot of thought has been given to ensure that someone new to watercolour has all the information and knowledge they need to get going. The lessons built on each other well, reinforcing the techniques at each stage. Sarah provided very comprehensive and constructive feedback, ensuring I could improve and build on what I had produced. I cannot recommend it highly enough and I will be going on to do the Intermediate course later in the year."

Sarah Colgate responded:

" Thank you Pip, for your review. I am glad you were able to develop and build up your skills as you progressed through the course and found the course materials and feedback effective. I look forward to working with you again in September. Sarah "

Eileen F. J. reviewed: Watercolours for beginners online course, by Sarah Colgate

"I had such a grand time following the beginner's Art Course, learning about different techniques and some I have never done before. It explains everything! I have really enjoyed the exercises, Sarah demonstrates clearly in her video U-tube which I have followed very carefully, able to pause when I needed to, rewind and watch again during my painting exercises. Sarah's feedbacks have been extremely helpful, giving solutions and advice along with encouragement and a "well done" which has given me confidence. I have put together a folder with the written instructions and including my weekly paintings so that I can refer back as I continue my journey into improving my Art! My family have shown a great interest in looking through my attempts at watercolours!! I highly recommend this course to those who have shown interest in painting but not sure where to start. Thank you Sarah!!"

Jo Russell reviewed: Watercolour for improvers by Sarah Colgate

"I have really enjoyed my watercolour course with Sarah. She explains each step so clearly with hand outs and youtube videos. You can paint in real time with her and this helps when you are a beginner trying to assess how much water/paint to put on the brush. My painting has improved hugely. Her feedback on everything I send her is timely and very positive with lots of helpful tips. My confidence is growing and growing. I can't wait for each tutorial to arrive each week! Would thoroughly recommend."

"Sarah's course was easy to follow. The Youtube demonstrations were very useful and it was good to have the paper copy too. I have learnt some useful tips and have really enjoyed doing it in Lockdown. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to try water colour painting."
