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 Colgate responded:

" Thank you, Jo for your review. I am glad you are enjoying the watercolour course and finding the course materials and feedback useful for developing your watercolour skills and confidence. Sarah"

Howard Newby reviewed: Watercolours for beginners online course, by Sarah Colgate

"I cannot recommend this course too highly. It has been absolutely brilliant. I was a complete novice when I began and so was a little apprehensive, but Sarah’s learning materials are first rate and her feedback is always constructive and supportive. I now have the appetite to carry this on to the next level and, thanks to Sarah’s outstanding teaching skills, I have discovered a fulfilling new hobby."

Sarah Colgate responded:

" Thank you, Howard for your review. Lovely to know that you are enjoying the course and it’s great to know it is developing into a fulfilling hobby. Sarah"

Keith reviewed: Watercolours for beginners online course, by Sarah Colgate

"I am enjoying this course very much. I have wanted to have a go at painting but never had the time when I was working. About 18 months ago we went to my sister’s in France. She has an artist friend who has informal painting afternoons, we went to one, did a painting with his guidance and I got the bug! Now with your course I am learning a lot of the grassroots of ‘Watercolour “ painting, e.g. Graduation of colours, complimentary colour, graded and variegated washes. I know it is probably obvious but the first lesson of the colour chart is a great idea of seeing exactly what the different colours look like on paper and of course, their names. I am looking forward to completing the rest of the course"

Sarah Colgate responded:

" Thank you, Keith for your review. I am glad you are enjoying the course and learning the basics of watercolour painting. It is good to know what you found particularly useful. Thank you. Sarah"
