Online Watercolour Painting Lesson with Marvin Chew

Accepting new students now for online class starting April 11th.

Venue: Your Home

Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, we are all advised to stay home as much as possible to help flatten the curve. Therefore, I will be bringing my weekly classes online by offering a unique learning experience to help you improve your watercolour painting skills without having to step out of your home.


By offering my lessons online, my classes are no longer bound by geographical borders, but open to anyone around the world with an internet connection. This online lesson will be best suited for participants who already have prior knowledge of watercolour painting and are looking for advice and feedback to further improve your skills.


You can start anytime you like, in the comfort of your own home. All you need is a laptop, iPad, tablet, or smartphone and an internet connection.


S$240 for 4 lessons (Singapore participants only)

US$180 for 4 lessons (International participants)


How does it work?

  • Livestream Painting Demo on YouTube once a week (approximately an hour). If you cannot make it for the livestream, don't worry, the demo will be recorded and you can view it at your convenience.


  • Painting subjects include but not limited to natural landscapes, rural villages, coastal scenes, urban street scenes, cityscapes, etc.


  • You will then paint it at home in your own free time and submit your completed painting to me latest by the following Wednesday.

  • This will be followed by 20 minutes of personalised critique session on Zoom at an agreed timeslot (on first come, first serve basis) for your work  or artworks which you have created previously. For overseas participants in different time zones, we can discuss and agree on a good timeslot.  The benefit of this session is you'll get individualised attention from me and I'll try my best to help you improve.


  • I will assess your work and provide a detailed feedback based on the following areas:


  • Composition & Design

  • Perspective & Proportion

  • Colour Application

  • Tonal Values

  • Brushstrokes & Textures

  • Hard & Soft Edges
