Have you ever wanted to take up watercolours but can't find a class near you, or frustrated by lack of progression with your art?. Well you have landed at the right place, here you will find lessons that will set you on a new course in your search to achieve great paintings. My aim here is the same vision I have for my gallery art class students, To give you my 40 years of experience as a professional artist and guide you to painting watercolours that your friends won't believe are yours.

All these courses are broken down into easy steps so that you can follow at your own pace. There are bonus videos with each course and downloadable PDFs detailing materials etc. There are previews available in the curriculum for you to try before you enrol in the course.

I have just created a course featuring my book 'Watercolour Art Class' which contains 170 pages of demonstrations and videos from my actual studio workshops. This is interactive and you can flip through the pages and bookmark any you like as well as print out any section you wish.

I will be adding more courses as time goes by so enrol above to be kept informed of these and any special offers available.

I hope these courses will inspire you to create great paintings. Cheers, Eric


I'm so happy to be taking another of your classes. I always learn a lot and your step by step approach allows me to produce beautiful work. I am excited to get started, please continue to add more classes. Joyce

I would recommend the online courses by Eric Thompson. Everything is explained prior to beginning e.g. colours needed, paper, brushes and how to download the subject being painted. Each lesson is numbered so you can progress through the course at your own pace, pausing if you need to have a break. Eric's teaching manner is fun and well paced.

At the end of the course you have a great painting!
