It has been a little over a year since I started teaching watercolour painting online. The move, which replaced my face-to-face classes, was forced upon me because of Covid but has turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I now have students from all around the world who I also count as my friends.

One of the very first paintings I did with my students was this one of two children and their mother having fun on the beach. I think most of us can relate to a time when we had fun building sandcastles on the beach with no other care in the world than when the tide would come back in the reclaim our creation.

It was one of my most popular works and I have decided to make it available on YouTube for anyone that would like to have a go at it.

This is part one, which coveres the drawing and distance water stage. Part two will be edited and uploaded soon.

I hope you enjoy it – if so, please subscribe to my channel and hit the bell button to be notified of my future videos. If you have any questions, please leave them on my YouTube Channel.
