Finally! Discover Watercolor Secrets that other artists know

Are you happy with your attempts at watercolor painting on your own? 

Or are you depressed over muddy paintings, ad trouble getting your colors right? 

Does any of this sound familiar? 

Don’t feel bad - you’re not alone, and it’s not your fault. The reason for your frustrated efforts is not a lack of talent. 

The reason why you can’t seem to paint watercolors is really quite simple, and even easy to fix. 

What has held you back is not understanding simple color mixing formulas and wich supplies to use when to get the best results… nobody has shown you how to break it down my way before--- it can be so much easier than you think. Let that soak in. 

And don't worry if you have weak drawing skills. If you can sketch a circle than you can get started learning to paint eggs, pears and tulips. This is how I get all my beginners started.

 All you need Is a painting mentor, And then you can enjoy painting watercolor animals on your own. (scroll down for more details!!)

If that sounds familiar, I can help!

"Miriam, I am a new painter and I am learning more from your Watercolor Secrets class than I have anywhere else. You are a great teacher and so encouraging! ...I will be taking your other classes with enthusiasm. So glad I found you." 

~Cornelia F.

It's really that simple.

But maybe not obvious. 

Sometimes we think others were just born with talent 

They weren’t. 

At one time, every artist started right where you are right now. 

There’s no reason holding you back from the same kind of success that others enjoy. 

And there’s even better news: you can enjoy that success faster, better, and easier than those who came before you. 

Because right now, there’s Watercolor Secrets, the first watercolor class that gives you a step by step plan for gaining watercolor mastery. This is because I am taking years of my experimentation and sharing with you the easy tricks that I use to create loose impressionistic watercolors.

"I honestly never thought about value studies and I have taken many art classes. But the way you explained it in Watercolor Secrets and showed exactly how this matters is perfect. I will now never forget or at least try to always take the values as an important part of anything I paint. Thank you for the demonstration I will start doing the value sketching an amazing tool to have"

Feed your soul with the right inspiration.

If your art has stagnated—or if you have no idea where to start—now is your time to change. It’s time to connect with your inner artist. It’s time to discover the joy that art can add back to your life. It’s time to finally take this much needed time for yourself which is just as important as exercise or eating right. What you put into your heart and mind feeds your soul. 

And if you don’t think you have the time to master all this stuff, you’ll love Watercolor Secrets. Each video has been edited down to the essentials.

What You'll Learn:

You have abandoned your creative side for too long, but right now you are ready to enter the more creative phase of your life.

Between all the art supplies, online videos, and everything else, you just don’t know what to do next...and you are overwhelmed... and maybe even a little bit frustrated. 

The good news? The content inside Watercolor Secrets will simplify your next steps by showing you:

  • Understand exactly how anyone can draw still life - it's not as tough as you think (and it's probably different than you think, too)!
  • The secret to integrating the subject into the background so they don't look like they have been pasted on
  • Learn how to develop value studies and why they are important to all your art.- It's as simple as 1-2-3!
  • Follow along step–by-step as you move through levels of mastery.  
  • Each project is broken down into manageable parts highlighting the most important elements  
  • How to blend watercolors and get color harmonies (the usual advice of paying attention to warm and cool is not really intuitive, so you can just toss that ad ice out) 
  • And I'll even show you how to paint cows with soul in less than an hour. Not only is it possible, but it's easier to do it this way!
  • Master color mixing for natural shades of green and lovely shades of gray  
  • Print out color mixing guides for grays and greens for future reference  
  • Gain access to carefully selected photo references so you can get started on your own paintings right now 

No more confusion. No more feeling overwhelmed. Just a more inspiration and skills to make your creative dreams real.

It’s like having an MFA in Watercolor—at a fraction of the cost and time.

Learned to be looser..and trust the process!

I took this class to inspire myself to return to watercolor painting. 

This class had easy to follow lessons and demos, a reference photo library, and interaction with community of like minded people. I liked how everyone is at a different level of experience and has a different style, and I learned to be a bit looser and to trust my own process.

~Audrey W.

Chock full of information!

I heard about your class because I stumbled onto your page and I’m so thankful for that. I hesitated to take this class because I was not sure if I could keep up or even like watercolors.

The class is perfect, Miriam. I wouldn't change a thing. I learned SO MUCH! Color mixing, sketching, marketing art. It was chock full of information, and I could go at my own pace. 

~Jeanie E.

Confidence building!

Miriam's classes are exactly what I've been looking for, very timely and well designed. 

Her style, support and social media groups work very well for my learning style. I liked learning new techniques, particularly doing shading in the first layer and confidence building. I learned that with the right instruction and support that I could do it.

~Linda D.

Easy to follow!

I hesitated about signing up because of my drawing abilities and my watercolor abilities; however, no online or video course has ever been as fun, encouraging, easy to follow, or has the instructor painted the entire picture right there with you, and you did just that. You made the creative process go full circle.  

I loved the support from you and the other students. The class videos were very well done with easy to follow drawing and painting instructions and demonstrations. Plus, it was so much fun!!
