ENROLLMENT CLOSES MIDNIGHT 27TH FEBRUARY!
Are you one of the tens of thousands of people who love watercolour but find it a bit frustrating?…
Your mission should you choose to accept it is to master a range of simple techniques over the next ten weeks that will put the fun back into watercolour for you and get you producing loose, vibrant, atmospheric, impressionistic, watercolour landscape paintings that have focus in just a few hours. You in?…
Oh here we go again! Yet another watercolour painting course promising me the earth that won’t deliver!”…
Is that what you’re thinking? I know that many of you have spent a lot of money on lessons, dvds, books and coaching over the years and they all promised you the earth so I completely understand if you do think that but I kid you not when I tell you that this program is completely different.
So why is this so different?
Well first of all you how do would you like to get taught not by an art teacher but rather by a full-time professional artist who actually makes a living selling the work he produces and using the very techniques you will learn in this program!
How many art teachers do you know that make a living selling the paintings they produce? In fact how many art teachers do you know that actually get time to paint their own stuff?…..Just a thought.
“Getting lessons from a qualified art teacher does seem like the sensible thing to do when either when you start painting or when you want to improve however you have to remember that they have been taught to teach you in a certain way namely by following a curriculum which is more or less the same curriculum that their former art teacher used to teach them.”…
So, what’s the problem with that?….
Well if that curriculum and that way of teaching worked don’t you think your art teacher would have become a professional artist rather than another art teacher?
“Art school is set up to teach their students how to become art teachers not professional artists - they just don’t tell you that when you sign up!”
I regularly have people attending my workshops who have fine art degrees and they are the first ones to admit that what they have learned in one workshop with me very often has helped them to progress more than anything they ever learnt in 4-5 years at art school.
As a self-taught professional artist I have been able to grow and experiment over the last 30 years without the constraints of a formal education in fine art! So, if you are up for it? – I can teach you a range of simple techniques that will help you to produce professional results in half the time it would take using more traditional techniques.
Through demonstrations and workshops at art societies & clubs I have helped potentially thousands of other watercolour artists of all levels and abilities to loosen up their painting style & speed up their progress with the medium and I believe I can help you to do the same given the chance.
Think about it how would you like to learn to produce fully finished landscape paintings in less than 2 hours - every time!
What about if you could can learn in a way that’s fun, engaging and more importantly that gives you ways & techniques that will ensure your painting time is super productive!
And as an added bonus there is very little theory involved!… Because lets face it, you don’t really want to spend months learning the theory do you?.. You just want to paint!
The Watercolour Landscape Mastery program is made up of a collection of over thirty short (5-20 mins) no nonsense videos that get straight to the point by giving you a short exercise or two to complete using each technique.
This is then compounded later when you get the opportunity to follow along with a number of optional full length workshops (1-2 hours) that use the techniques you have learned to complete finished paintings. In other words the whole focus is on getting you results quickly!
How does that sound to you?…..Sound good?
How would you like to learn how to paint like this?
Each of these paintings took 2 hours or less to complete! Using the same techniques you will be learning…
So who exactly is this program for?
Well basically if you are anywhere between these two groups you will be fine:
I know what a paint brush is and can hold one, I can also add water to the paint and put it on the paper…
I am a proficient artist. I can paint up a storm but really need to loosen up a bit to get my work to where I want it to be…
Here are a few comments from people just like you who I have helped previously...
Wow what a workshop! You certainly opened my eyes. I didn't realise just how much all the little habits I have picked up have stifled my progress. As you said on Saturday we all just assume that because it's in a book that it must be how things are done and never think to question it. I have a feeling that me and watercolour are going to become best buddies again lol!
Greg has a refreshing, almost rebellious approach to painting with watercolours, flying in the face of the “rule books”. From large format canvass through broad and chunky brushes to scraping with a blade his approach certainly gets the attention of the room and invites questions from the audience
Thank you for a great painting course I really enjoyed it. I thought I would learn a couple of tips for painting watercolours but had my painting world turned upside down.
You answered many of my half-thought questions for which I hadn’t realised that I was looking for answers.
I was heading towards being a watercolour purist but you have opened up the door for me to a wider interpretation of applying the media.
Its going to take a while to incorporate my learning into my new paintings but I am looking forwards to the challenge with supercharged vigour.
I now understand why your courses are so popular. Thanks again
Hi Greg just a quick email to say thank you so much for the wonderful workshop yesterday. I was nearly ready for throwing my watercolours in the bin but you have shown me the way forward. Thanks for sharing your approach & experience and see you next year!
We all enjoyed your demo and definitely learnt things we didn’t know before. You went a long way to de-mystifying watercolours for some of us, and those of us who tend to steer clear of this medium went home with a resolution to try it again
Just thought you should have another "thank you" for the great workshop you did for us at Knott End. The feedback was excellent at the following meeting
Hi Greg Just wanted to say many thanks for a really enjoyable and informative day yesterday. Must admit my stomach sank when you revealed "our painting"! LOL! However, you shared your tips and techniques and it happened which made for a great day in a great venue. Thanks for the inspiration!
I just wanted to drop you an email to say a really big thank you for the watercolour workshop I recently attended in Coniston, It was fantastic!!
Ever since meeting you & seeing your work I have been inspired to paint the mountains, as I spend as much of my spare time as I can photographing & walking the fells, but never thought I could ever paint them, so I am really chuffed to have found such pleasure in doing so!
A belated thank you for a very enjoyable day on Saturday at the workshop. The best Christmas present in a long time. Thank you!
Thanks Greg for a really brilliant workshop where I learned so many new techniques and also areas where I was going so wrong in my current work.
Everything was so easy to follow and your demonstrations brought everything into reality.
The rule books have been discarded!....Cheers once again!
Look let’s be honest. Why are you here on this page at this moment in time?…
I would guess it’s because you like many others probably took up painting to have fun but somewhere along the road to artistic genius you have got a little lost and what used to fill you with joy has sometimes become well, a little stressful maybe even downright frustrating!
Am I right?….
How would I know that?
Simple, I know this because I was in your shoes at one point and found myself really struggling to make any progress. I was lucky because I found a way forward where so many don’t!
So what changed?…
I threw the rule book away and found a different approach and that’s exactly what I would like to show you. So, you up for it?…
I guarantee that if you are willing to open your mind to a slightly different approach to painting with watercolour and commit just a few short hours every week to learning some simple techniques you will be able to take huge steps forward in not only your ability with watercolour but also in your confidence as an artist who has something to say and all in just 10 weeks!
Well this sounds great but it also sounds very expensive Greg. Am I going to need to remortgage my house for this?…
Well lets be realistic about this. What are you actually getting here and how much is it worth? If I can save you years of frustration, bring the joy back into your painting sessions, help to make your painting time not only more fun but 10x more productive through showing you how you can implement a lightly different approach and a few simple techniques that will make painting any element of the landscape a doddle then what would that be worth to you?
I am basically condensing 30 years of watercolour landscape painting experience into a short 10 week tuition program for you, giving you lifetime access to all the lessons, plus email access to me, access to the private members only Facebook group, life-time discount on art materials and a few more surprises along the way and all for only £297!
So in real terms as everyone seems to be obsessed with how much everyone gets paid these days what I am charging for this program equates to:
0.02p per day’s experience (297 ÷ 30 years ÷ 365 days = £0.02)
£4.24 per course day (297 ÷ 70 days = £4.24)
I think that’s a very reasonable rate well at least for you anyway - I haven’t let my wife see this as she will be on at me to put the price up!
That’s right this whole program + bonuses comes in at just £297 - roughly the same amount as it would cost you to buy a washing machine but just think how much more fun you will have doing this!
So now I’ve told you exactly what sort of dent this will put in your wallet (not that big a one!) I guess I will have to show you a little more to justify it…
So what’s in this ‘Watercolour Landscape Mastery’ thingy? - What do I get for my cash?…
Well first of all the whole program is hosted online and can be accessed on any computer, laptop, tablet or phone with an internet connection. So no running round trying to find dvds, books and definitely no getting up early at the weekend and having to drive to get to a class in some village hall in the middle of nowhere! It’s all very convenient.
The program is drip-fed to you over a 10-week period very carefully so that you never feel overwhelmed!
[Note: Don’t forget though that if something crops up which means you are unable to complete the program in the 10 weeks then there is no need to worry because included in the price is life-time access to all the training!]
All you need to do is to get your paints ready, login to, watch your next lesson and follow along. Its that easy!
I actually asked my youngest to have a go to see how easy it was to access and follow along with the training and he managed fine - and he’s only eleven!
So for any technophobes out there trust me you will be fine! I will (in a virtual sense) be holding your hand all the way through the program either through instructions on the training platform or through the emails I will send you during the program to keep you on track and if at any point you get a little behind don’t worry just reach out and I will be there to help. But trust me when I say - you won’t need to!
30+ training videos plus lots of extra goodies thrown in for you along the way such as tip sheets, ebooks, drawing guides, bonus tutorials & more.
Plus (as if that wasn’t enough!) you will receive a life-time discount on any art materials that you purchase through my website and even the chance to win a few bits’n’bobs while you are working your way through the program - cool huh!
In fact I start the whole thing of by offering you a huge £50.00 discount on an art materials pack that contains everything you could possibly need for this program and beyond!
So for all of you who like to know exactly what’s underneath the hood before you buy I have included below a complete breakdown of all the lessons and bonus training’s included in the program.

The Staccato Effect! - Shadows & Connecting Your Shapes
This is all about avoiding a thing I call the “Staccato Effect”.

Taking It To The Next Level! - It’s the Final Countdown!
Timing! This is the secret that will take your paintings to the next level in just six paintings - trust me! Make fiddling and overworking a thing of the past!
So here is where you get to mission accomplished and where I get to prove my point to you, which is that by using what you have learnt over the previous few weeks you will be able to paint a beautiful, atmospheric watercolour landscape that has focus, drama and presence all within just a couple of hours.
In fact you are going to see how by utilising your new approach & techniques you can reproduce 4-6 of my very own paintings in your own style. I might also add here that these are paintings that I have sold or that are currently available to purchase on my website. They have not just been produced as workshop exercises!
Lessons In This Module:
Workshop #1, Workshop #2, Workshop #3, Workshop #4 and maybe more…..
Learn how to utilise a handful of the techniques you have used by following along while I paint a selection of landscapes. Then once you’ve have had a run through following me it’s over to you because you are then going to paint the same scenes yourself but this time round you will utilise a different colour scheme, set the scene in a different season and change the atmosphere & light through the painting by adding a different sky and all of course in just 2-3 hours.
You can do it!
IMPORTANT NOTE: I should probably mention here that as far as I am concerned this program is a work in progress. So as you and the other students progress through the training I will be listening and will be more than happy to take on board suggestions for other lessons you may be interested in seeing.
This outline is just that - an outline! It is highly likely that new lessons will be added in the future but regardless of when you join the program you will still have access to everything there is now plus any new additional training added in the future and at no extra cost.
Still Thinking About It? Really!….O.k Then How About This!…
So if after seeing all that you are still here on this page at this point and not reaching for your credit card then I know you’re probably one of those people who is having that little battle in your head right now. You know the one that goes a little bit like this:
Emotional Self: Wow this looks like just what I was looking for? I’ll be as good as Turner within a few weeks…
Logical Self: Yeah, yeah but we could spend that money on a washing machine!…
Emotional Self: Maybe but that would be boring and being good at painting will make me happier and you less stressed!…
Logical Self: Oh I don’t know, hmmm. I need something other than that to justify the purchase….
Emotional Self: Don’t be such a killjoy!…
Logical Self: Don’t be so impetuous! remember the bungee jumping incident, and that other time when you didn’t listen to me
Emotional Self: Neh, Neh, Neh, Neh!!!…..
That sound a little familiar? Don’t worry I’m a bit like that too so what about if I gave you a few extras! In fact how about I give you enough extras to cancel the cost of the course out?
