If you are brand new to watercolor, or have never taken a watercolor class with me before, it's a good idea to get a foundation in the basics of watercolor.

In this step-by-step course, you will master blending, shading and color mixing for the most common problems. You'll enjoy experimenting with new techniques as you create three complete watercolor projects that require no prior painting or drawing experience. For the more advanced watercolorist, you will also discover my signature tips, tricks, and strategies that make painting loose and effortless.

Pet Portrait Academy

Great value for those serious about painting pet portraits.

When you take these two classes you will discover: 

  • What you must do before you even think about picking up your paint brush 
  • Understand exactly how anyone can mix luminous colors – it’s not as tough as you think (and it’s probably different then you think, too)! 
  • The secret to drawing cats and dogs
  • How to blend colors without getting mud (hint: it's not about mixing warm with cool - that advice is just not intuitive and leads to even more confusion and frustration!).

Workshop Feedback

"I hesitated to take Dog Days, because I didn’t have confidence in my own painting. But I knew the class would be amazing! I love painting, I love dogs, and I love Miriam's classes. This class has exceeded my expectations. I love how my dog portraits came out, and other people love them too. I am glad to know that I have the private Facebook group for advice and moral support! After posting my portraits on Facebook, I’ve begun receiving inquiries about taking commissions. I have now sold 4 dog portraits and have a waiting list! Next, I’m planning to take Watercolor Portraits." ~Audrey Witman

"All the classes I'm taking from you are teaching me new and fun ways to paint. Very happy and learning lots. I love how you let paint bleed and drip. Mixing colors instead of straight out of the tube is exciting. This has been the most fun and informative art classes I've taken in a very long time. I want to do commissions of dogs and cats and I will learn more about securing clients for them. The Crazy Cats course I took with Miriam improved my skills so much that learning about dogs will advance my career in critters even more. Thank you, Miriam" ~Judy S.

"I joined up for Crazy Cats because I wanted to learn how to draw and paint these beautiful creatures... I convinced myself that I was not good enough to draw and paint, but I have this strong artistic streak in me that just needs nurturing, and I feel that your online lessons give me the skill and confidence I need to fultill the inner artist within me!!!...Thank you Miriam for giving me this chance!!" ~Janet M.

"I love Miriam's style and want to learn a more loose style. Painting animals has been intimidating to me, and I wanted a good teacher. I am loving this Dog Days class! The instructions are so good, and I love that it is self-paced and mine to keep for as long as I need it. Miriam explains things very well, and I’m pretty happy with my very first try at painting dogs. Thanks, Miriam!" ~Tracy Schenk

"As soon as I saw the free video series on pet portraits, I knew I had to take Dog Days! I have been painting pet portraits for a while, but I love Miriam’s style, so it was an easy decision. Before, I struggled with painting dogs too tightly, and now my portraits have greatly improved! This class has easy and clear instructions and is fun and informative. As a matter of fact, I have sold 3 paintings since taking the class!" ~Debbie Myers
