Beginners Watercolour

Welcome to my website.

A bit about me……

My name is Patrick Ley-Greaves, I live in the United Kingdom and I have been painting watercolour for over 25 years. I’m a self-taught artist during which time, I experienced all the frustrations and made all the mistakes a beginner in watercolour painting can make. I now enjoy passing on my knowledge and seeing others benefit from the pleasures of painting.




How to use this website……

I have compiled various video based tutorials to help guide you through the basics of watercolour, I would advise everyone who wishes to improve their painting technique to start with the Tools of the trade video and then work your way through the other videos, advancing your painting skills as you progress.

To navigate the site you will find all video tutorials in the menu bar above, each skill level is marked and each video is presented as an individual page, making it easier for you to pick up from where you left off on previous visits to the site.

I hope that you find these video tutorials to be of some value to aiding you in improving at this art medium that we all love so much, all that remains for me to say now is; Sit back, relax and join me as I introduce you to the different elements that make up a successful watercolour painting.

Happy Painting.
