Why do I want to offer this course:-

I am a completely self-taught artist with absolutely no formal education in art, but lot of passion for learning n art. I was initiated into the watercolor world in 2018 in a workshop in Diamond Harbour by Fabriano. Then In pure pristine Banaras ghats, by Ganges, I underwent a life changing transformation ,fathomed the washes, composition and how to enjoy ecstasy of watercolours. I started painting streets and ghats of Banaras using watercolors and my work was selected in IWS Canada. Since then there has been no stopping me back. My work was selected and exhibited in numerous international forums. Still I had no idea where to start, how to paint, and what subjects to paint. I tried to learn from YouTube videos and from various watercolor blogs. I committed several mistakes and learned from each of my mistakes. I soon figured out a strategy for learning fast and in a more efficient manner. This strategy helped me to gain confidence in painting in a matter of a few months and also helped me to figure out how to paint absolutely any subject in a style using watercolors. I invested heavily on myself, both money and time, and worked, studied learnt, practised, discussed the fundamentals of Art and incorporated them into my work. COVID lockdown n husbands ill health made me housebound and I utilised this time to refine, define, explore and hone my Art skills as a Masterartist, Art Educator, Art entrepreneur, art author, art innovator.

In my sessions, I focus on participants mindset and help them to realise that they can paint whatever subject they want once they understand fundamentals and learn how to analyze and plan before starting a painting.

Through this online course, I want to share my knowledge and skills and guide the aspiring artists to paint confidently within a short time.

By participating in this course you will learn how to relax, have fun, enjoy and joyously develop a strong understanding of arts and watercolor painting.

My unique teaching strategy will help you to learn painting in this medium in a much faster and enjoyable manner.
