Yes! You can log into the classroom at any time to view the lessons, ask questions and/or upload your work.


Is there anything I need to do before the Live Version starts?


Prior to 28 September you can sign up to receive the free Intro lessons here.


There is no set materials list for this course but these are the minimum requirements:

  • your normal watercolour kit
  • your normal brush
  • your normal sketchbook
  • a pen with permanent ink (a fineliner or fountain pen)

The only special recommendation for this course is to have some markers to create a 5 step-value scale.

I prefer to work at my own pace, can I do that?


Yes, of course! This timetable is totally optional and you can work through the lessons whenever it suits you.

Teacher Interaction during the Live Version


During the Live Version of this course Liz will be in the classroom at some point each day (Monday – Saturday) looking at the work uploaded and answering questions Please note: She will not be commenting on individual homework.

But the really special part of a Live Version is the interaction which occurs in the classroom between participants! You will be part of a very special inspiring group of sketchers who will be there to cheer you on!

What happens after the Live Version finishes?


If you get behind during the Live Version, you can finish off the lessons at any time.


The classroom will become quieter but there will always be some people working through the lessons at any time. And yes, you have lifetime access so you can come back to the lessons whenever you want.
