If you are unable to join a workshop in person, these online classes bring you guidance, techniques and personal sketching tips that you can access anytime and anywhere! Many of these classes cover a step-by-step approach to urban sketching to give you confidence to create your own sketches with line, ink and watercolour. Once purchased, these classes are available to you forever, so you can watch and repeat them as many times as you like.
The workshops are in real-time with audio, so each lesson is like we will be sketching along together, and I'm here to help with feedback or guidance, if you feel you need it.
You can also join my private Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/online.amsketching for additional resources and to connect with other students!
Etchr Studio Workshops
Learn some essential techniques for urban sketching with ink and watercolour. In these classes I share my tips for simplifying perspective, composition, and ways to add people to your sketches!
What a superb tutorial!
I found Annette’s method of teaching very easy to follow .
I was really happy with my finished sketch and look forward to the next one.
This is my second Annette Morris session and I am infatuated now with bright, deep colors. Excellent session.
Having recently completed the Watercolour Sketching for beginners course I can highly recommend both the course and the excellent teacher, Annette. Being a complete novice I was amazed and thrilled by the many skills I learnt and the wonderful paintings I was able to produce. Annette is a friendly and enthusiastic person and a brilliant teacher.
I just love my learning experiences with Annette, both virtually on zoom and her daily sketching prompts on facebook. She demonstrates techniques and explains how to best work with various media, including watercolour paints and crayons. For anyone who has an interest in improving their skills, or would like to embark on a new hobby, I would thoroughly recommend that you follow Annette’s wonderful examples and, when possible join a zoom class.
Annette’s guided tutorials are easy to follow. Her calming, instructive voice leads you through each step clearly and result in a sketch of your very own making. Enjoy
I’ve been benefiting from Annette’s online watercolour sketching tutorials. They are enormous fun and structured to include a variety of topics and techniques for the absolute beginner. This is something I’ve wanted to try for years and Annette’s clever teaching has given me the confidence and the skills to have a go. Highly recommended.
I enjoyed it very much. I am familiar with Annette’s teaching style and so I was able to sketch along, but I think that would be possible if not familiar. The follow-up video allows another attempt at the learner’s pace and also further practice.
Thanks Annette another lovely tutorial, really enjoying how you break down urban scenes and looking forward to going out and trying en plein air once the weather improves here in Yorkshire!
Annette is a wonderful artist and teacher! I am a beginner watercolorist, although I do have some experience with the medium. Annette explains and demonstrates things very well. Added to a lovely, upbeat personality, her demos and workshops are great! What I have enjoyed the most is her selection of locations in France as references. I love traveling around the Mediterranean, particularly Italy, and want to learn to capture my travels (in person and my photos) in a watercolor sketchbook. I will be doing her master class in this series next!
The instructor did an excellent job explaining her process and my initial drawing proportions were better than usual for me. I will try her techniques on other drawings.
I really loved the tutorial. Your explanations are just so clear.
This was a great workshop by one of my favourite watercolour artists. The pace was fast (although I do appreciate the time restraints) and I was able to follow along for most of it and then complete any finishing touches afterwards. The PDF was a welcome addition as a step by step guide too.
