ABOUT AMIT

Amit is a leading master of watercolour medium in India. He has been recognised with top international honours for his paintings and his art can be found on the walls of many private and corporate collectors.


ART SERIES SUMMARY

This special art road trip series is split into six events, priced at £90 incl. tax (just £15 per event). About the same price as adding extra luggage to a flight - without the need for a flight!


  • Three events will be broadcast live with Amit from Prague, Bratislava and Florence. We will take a 'virtual' walk with Amit as he walks the streets and squares, and ask him questions as he discusses the light, colours, atmosphere and possible scenes to use as his reference.


Once we have decided on a reference scene with the live audience, we will leave Amit to paint it, while recording his tutorial in high quality HD. The recording will then be edited and sent to you. You can keep these videos and watch as many times as you want.


  • The final three events will be where you receive the recordings and finish off your own painting(s). We aim to do this in good time before the next livestream with Amit, so that you can share your painting (optional) and we can start the next livestream with feedback from Amit on those paintings shared, as well as any questions you may have thought of in the meantime.


ART ABILITY & GIFTING

This series is ideal for all levels. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced watercolour artist, we'll cover lots of useful insights on the joys of painting outdoors.


If you want to gift this series as a present to someone special, simply purchase and reply to the confirmation email with the email address of the person you wish to gift to. We'll send them the link and the video instead.


PLEASE NOTE: If you are gifting, it's a good idea to let the recipient know in advance so that they don't mark our email with the link as spam!


We can't wait to host this special series. It's going to be so much fun. See more details below.
