Hi Teachables! I am Alison Fennell - your art tutor. I am 56 years old, from Wales, UK, a professional artist and fully qualified teacher (BSc. PGCE, Trinity Cert TESOL).

Just recently I was awarded 41st position in the Top 75 rated watercolour tutors on Youtube by a Buzzfeed independent poll.

My mission is to get you on the way with painting watercolour!
I am a thorough and clear teacher who wants you to succeed.

Do you want to respond to fall flora in paint but don't know where to start?
Do you admire watercolour and wish you could express your impressions in it?
Are you overwhelmed by the processes needed to paint loose and in detail?

In slow, clear and methodical steps I'll signpost the trail for you with watercolour wisdom, practice and direction.

You will firm up on basic skills and paint with aplomb.

Its sole aim is to leave you feeling enlightened, empowered and encouraged about the main elements of watercolouring.

You will harvest what you need to continue in a self-directed way with your watercolour as you paint in the comfort of your own home.

Please contact me with any queries at all about what you will gain from studying watercolour with me. Let's settle in for the course that will mould you into a confident watercolour artist.
