I have just totally re shot this whole course!

Using my brand new camera, microphone and laptop, so the quality is now 200% better. This is part of my commitment to improving all my courses over time, keeping them fresh and up to date.

We still have the three full tutorials...

"A quintessential country garden".

From Bodnant gardens near me in North Wales.

"Bodnant Laburnum arch".

Also from Bodnant gardens, such a stunning sight.

"Remembrance poppy field".

Inspired by a beach near Pensarn and remembrance Sunday.

We use just 7 colors and 3 brushes.

Check out the free tools required video in the review section.

The lessons are in real time and live!

I painted these demos live on facebook so you see each and every part of the process.

You have this course for life so you can do it as often as you like.

You can ask questions in the q a section if you get stuck.

Come and have a look and I will see you in the first lesson, cheers David.

I have kept the old lessons archived at the end of the course so you are also able to check these out, the content is still relevant even though the production quality is not the best.
