Hi! I’m Nat Martin, a watercolour artist from Victoria, Australia. I’ve been captivated by this medium for as long as I can remember and while teaching is a more recent thing, there’s nothing more rewarding than helping someone explore or reconnect with their creative side.
This new course, The Magic of Colour Mixing follows on from Welcome to Watercolour and is for budding and established artists alike. In it, we’ll go deep into modern colour theory and together, we’ll build up your skills and confidence so you too can create works bursting with life and begin to develop your own language with colour.
The course also covers why it’s important to understand colour and how colour affects the mood, temperature and energy of your work. You’ll paint your own colour mixing wheel, learn about colour reference charts, how to create beautiful neutrals and earthy colours, AND, why you keep accidentally making brown (!)
Colour is such a huge part of my own work, I love using vibrant, high energy watercolour and I’m so looking forward to seeing the magic you create with your finished piece.
What to expect:
9 videos shot in High Definition with an overall run time of 120 minutes. The beauty of a self paced online course is that you work through this course to pause and practice before proceeding onto the next stages.
- A comprehensive understanding of colour theory
- An understanding of watercolour as a medium and other necessary materials
- A final project - a botanical watercolour painting

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.
