Watercolours with Jaimee

Learn a new skill and paint your beloved furbaby!

Hi, my name is Jaimee McLeod and one of my life passions is painting pet portraits. After the passing of a family pet in 2019, I decided to use my artistic skills to create a keepsake painting for my family to remember our beloved friend. Over the past 3 years, I have painted hundreds of pet portraits for families all over the world. During this time I have learnt many techniques in watercolour painting and would like to share these skills with others so they too may be able to create their own cherished memories of their beloved pet.

During this intimate, fun and creative workshop you will learn how to paint with  watercolours, apply techniques to achieve certain effects I use everyday in my artworks. I will teach you tips and tricks for navigating accidents on the page and choosing and mixing colours for your masterpeice all while having fun creating an exciting pet portrait of your desired animal.

You can also have the option of learning how to sketch out your pet or have it pre sketched out prior to the lesson to focus on learning the 

techniques of using watercolours.
