This course is designed for artists who have experienced watercolor’s challenges.

It’s a gateway to quickly mastering watercolor’s tricky characteristics so you can focus on the joyful parts of painting instead of being frustrated with the nuances of the medium.

In Vibrant Watercolors, Georgia demystifies the watercolor process, guiding you through three critical stages of painting.

You’ll learn the art of balancing wetness and dryness, creating passages of light, and harnessing the vibrancy of colors. It’s not about mixing colors — it’s about knowing how to let the water and paint weave their magic with minimal intervention.

You’ll learn to embrace boldness and take risks that pay off with rich imagery. You’ll get to improve your artistry and see your watercolors come alive with luminous, juicy hues.

Forget muddy, lifeless tones — just vivid colors full of joyful life.

Georgia shares her insights on creating harmony between background and foreground, making your paintings more cohesive and expressive. The course also covers innovative use of tools like brushes, sponges, and stencils to lift paint, sculpting both positive and negative shapes.

With her proven 3-stage “Joyful Palette” process, creating rich and bold watercolor art is now even easier — even if you’re new to watercolors.

This process effectively solves the challenge of color mixing, making it easier to understand and avoiding the muddy colors that haunt many watercolor artists.

Once you understand Georgia’s process, you’ll have an advanced understanding of how to make your watercolors bright and vibrant.

However, this amazing process does more than just put your art on the right path…

…it also simplifies your approach — showing you what to prioritize first, common mistakes to avoid, and many other useful tips to ensure a successful painting.

One such technique you’ll quickly grasp is her “instant bold” painting method, where you don’t need to spend so much time glazing layers of paint to get the look you want!

With so many incredible insights, Georgia will take you from where you are now to creating expressive and vibrant watercolor paintings quickly, without the confusion and frustration.
