Watercolour painting is a mindful craft that gives you the opportunity to take some time out to be creative and express yourself.

Guided by your expert teacher, you'll learn some great new watercolour techniques and you'll soon be lost in the process of putting paint to canvas. You'll explore the basics of colour theory (how to mix paints to create different colours), you'll discover some of the technical terms used in the craft, and you'll be shown how to hold your paintbrush to achieve great results.

Your class is delivered through a pre-recorded video, meaning you can pause, rewind and recap details, hints or tips at any time - making it ideal for beginners. This class gives you a great opportunity to paint at your own leisurely pace without missing any of the information or demonstrations.

Hi, my name is Kirstie Trobe and I'm a professional Artist and Art Tutor.
I've exhibited my work nationally at the Royal Society of Artists Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London, Broadway Arts Festival Open Arts Competition and locally.

After Art College, I worked professionally as a Graphic Designer before starting a family and raising 6 children. Once my children were old enough I was lucky enough to be able to pursue my life long interest in art again by attending life drawing and watercolour classes, much like these ClassBento classes.

From that, I was then offered the opportunity to teach watercolour classes and become a guest tutor in life drawing and portraiture classes. From there I also started my own independent classes before establishing my own studio where I've been running beginners and intermediate watercolour classes in person, and online, as well as figure drawing and portraiture online.
