The fourth course in my collection of ‘Paint Realistic Watercolour and Botanicals’ tutorials focuses on another favourite subject of mine, the utterly elegant, beautiful Lotus. This is a subject you can never tire of or stop learning new things about, and one I am really excited to explore with you… There is truly is something for everyone in illustrating the Lotus, and of course there is no better medium for it than watercolour!

Following the STUDIO BASICS, CHASING AUTUMN and MAGNOLIAS tutorials, LOTUS continues to concrete what we’ve learned so far in my online painting tutorials and develop and refine our techniques and skills in watercolour painting and botanical illustration further with the exploration of this wonderful subject. This extensive tutorial includes a watercolor techniques exercise section of a lotus bud, a flower and leaf study as our main focus painting and in the NutShell Extension Tutorial, we take a closer look at the striking Lotus Seed Capsule for anyone wishing to explore this subject further.  

From flower and bud, to their gorgeous leaves and its stunning seed capsule, we will learn more about the processes and essential watercolour painting techniques involved in painting each of these elements in a realistic style, from start to completion. Through comprehensive step by step tuition we will explore many aspects and elements of the Lotus plant in depth together, forming strategy, confidence and practical approaches to equip you well to complete some gorgeous paintings of your own.  

Diverse in its complexity from simple, velvety elegance to a delicious, complex tangle of texture, colour, structure and fantastic detail, you will quickly find yourself falling into the rich beauty of this subject just as I have! With wonderful harmonious colours, manageable shapes and areas for us to work with, gorgeous delicate textures and wonderful diversity in its form to explore, the Lotus is a wonderful topic for any artist in any medium to explore, and is an ideal next stop for us on our botanical illustration learning journey together.

Create beautiful single element paintings with our focus subjects, combine the elements to start exploring your own multi element compositions this time, this course is designed to be versatile in and adaptable to your own preferences, level and needs. I invite you to join me here again, so come and paint along with some or all of the course topics as you please, all in your own time and at your own pace… Its such a wonderful way to learn! 

I look forward to helping you to learn, grow and keep you moving forwards on your own painting path, and to share my love of this wonderful, joyful world with you again. 

Ill see you in the wash ~ Heidi

  1. Luis Brito

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
