Hi, I’m Natalie Martin, an Australian watercolour artist, based on Wadawarrung country (Surf Coast, Victoria).
The fluidity and subtlety of watercolour is only enhanced through working with layers, you can create a beautiful luminosity. This is quite unique to watercolour and one of the main reasons I love this medium so much.
This new intermediate course is my third online course, following on from Welcome to Watercolour and the Magic of Colour Mixing.
In it, we’ll dig into basic and more advanced layering techniques, you’ll spend time experimenting with ways to layer pigment, and learn how to create different effects (as long as you can muster the patience to let things dry properly as you go!) You’ll gain greater insight into my practice, as we explore how to create artworks with greater complexity, detail and interest. We also take time to delve into common errors and equipment care.
This course is the perfect next step once you’ve mastered the basics. Layering work brings watercolour to its greatest potential, and I can’t wait to see how you continue to develop your practice and build confidence in painting with this magical medium.
What to expect:
9 videos with an overall run time of 2 hours and 40 minutes minutes. You’ll be able to access these videos whenever you like as this is a self paced course. You’ll also have lifetime access, so are able to go back and review episodes at your leisure.
- A comprehensive overview of watercolour layering techniques
- An understanding of translucency, colour, tone as well as other techniques such as negative space

Natalie Martin is an artist based on the Surf Coast, Victoria. She likes to get her hands dirty and bring a little joy (and colour!) to the every day.
Natalie works in vibrant watercolour. She’s particularly fond of native Australian flora and the landscape it’s found. She’s drawn to blooms in season and that seasonal swing throughout the year provides a beautiful rhythm and constant flow of inspiration. She feels a deep connection to being outdoors and observing and learning from nature. With her studio based on the Surf Coast in Victoria, there’s an endless source of inspiration within reach.
Natalie fell in love with watercolour early on and over the years she has exhibited her work, produced a collection of limited edition prints, developed a line of environmentally friendly stationery, experimented with printing on fabrics and also begun teaching workshops in person as well as online.
