Are you happy with your attempts at watercolor painting on your own?
Or are you depressed over muddy paintings, and 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.
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 watercolors on your own.
"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."
It's really that simple.
But maybe not obvious.
Sometimes we think others were just born with talent
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.
Who this class is for...
If you want to paint more loosely
If you've wanted to try watercolors your whole life, but never got around to it or never found the time.
Perhaps you haven't picked up a paintbrush since college
or maybe you have been already painting watercolors, but want to learn how *I* do it... my whole signature process
In case we haven't met yet, I'm an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion or become better artists. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and atop-ranked podcast, I've helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.
A graduate of Dartmouth College and M.I.T, I initially pursued finance but after witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, What Women Create, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. My forthcoming book with HarperCollins Leadership, Artpreneur, on how to make it as an artist is scheduled to be released January 31, 2023.
When I'm not in the studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband, adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony.
What You Will Make:
By the end of the course, you will have successfully completed three paintings of tulips, eggs and pears while mastering the most common shading & mixing techniques to apply to your other paintings
How It Works:
You get all the materials on the very first day. Binge watch them or rewatch them as many times as you need. With lifetime acess, it's all up to you.
You may watch the videos right in the classroom or download them to save to your computer. They're yours to keep forever.
Each lesson includes a tip list that you may print out so that you can try painting away from your computer.
You can ask questions right in the classroom or share your art on facebook in a private nurturing community.
"Gave me confidence that I CAN do it"
"I never painted with watercolor before taking this class.
Since I've taken Watercolor Secrets, it has given me insight into watercolor and how the medium works and how you can make it work for you instead of it controlling you instead.
Since I've created the pieces in the classes, it has given me confidence that I can do it. Miriam is absolutely very helpful. I felt at ease, not worrying about if I can do it.
I would say to anyone who wants to do watercolor, just listen to Miriam. She knows what she's doing and she's extremely, extremely helpful and showing you what you can do with watercolor paint."

It’s time to discover the joy that art can add back to your life.
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.
"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"
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.

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)!

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

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

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.
Wired up and inspired!
"I do love Miriam's videos. I love watching them. And I feel so wired up by watching her and have been inspired to...PRODUCE, PRODUCE, PRODUCE!!"
~ Anji C.
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.
Enjoying this new adventure!
I love Miriam's free style and confidence in all of us❤️ Really enjoying this new adventure.
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.
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!!
You might be wondering...
Q: How long do I have access to the course and the facebook group? A: LIFETIME ACCESSS!
Q: Do you have a payment plan? A: Yes! You can get started with only $47 by choosing the 3 month installment plan.
Q: If I choose the payment plan, do I have to wait to get the lessons? A: No. All students will get the course material right when they register regardless of how they're paying.
Q: How long is each video demonstration? A:I pride myself in my editing skills. Where other art teachers may have long stretches where all you see is their manicure while they are talking about something not related to painting skills, my videos are PACKED with useful tips, tricks and techniques and edited down to all the good stuff.
The lessons are divided into manageable chunks to help you find the right video you may want to replay.
Q: Do you have a class syllabus?A: Please email support@TheInspiratonPlace.net and we would be happy to send you a complete syllabus listing all the videos and the length of each.
Q: Do I have to be at my computer at a specific time? A: No, all course are available when you want to watch them for as many times as you need to refresh
Q: Can I download the videos? A: Yes, you can download them to a computer but apple (ipad users) will have to use an app to get them. (because of apple)
Q: Can I ask you questions? A: Absolutely! I love to answer questions. I answer questions posted in the classroom at least once a week.
Q: I don't have all the paints on your list... can I make substitutions? A:Yes, always... but sometimes a formula may look better with my recommendations. But there is usually a substitute. I would say that you must have all the blues I recommened, a green of your choosing, burnt sienna and a variety of yellows. You also need a red and a pink but the exact ones may not matter so much.
Q: I can't wait...when does class start? The classes are ready and available as soon as your registration has been processed. You will be emailed when the registrations have all been processed. Since the password comes from the system ( not me) check your spam for it. (takes less than fifteen minutes for the computer to do their magic!) This is a self-paced class with live interaction .
