Selected Archival Workshops from 2022
  • Selected Archival Workshops from 2022


    Experience four selected online workshops from 2022 from the comfort of your own home.


    Watercolour can be a tricky medium to paint with – It’s unpredictable AND permanent! But with the right tools and proper approach,



    I’m Max Panks and I’ve been painting with watercolour for almost a decade now. It’s been a long journey and I’ve made some terrible paintings in my time, but those terrible paintings all served as lessons. They helped me craft and solidify my style (which is still changing by the way). I love watercolour because it requires the user to take big risks and be spontaneous. It teaches you that failure is a necessary ingredient on the journey to mastery. Each terrible painting brings you one step closer to your masterpiece. 


    In 2022, I began teaching my style in group online workshops. In order to help you find your way with watercolour, I’m making a lot of these workshops available for download here.


    Within this introductory digital course, you’ll have the opportunity to paint along with me as I guide you through my process, taking you step by step through four of my favourite places to paint.


    These four selected workshops from 2022 are designed to teach the student exactly how to manage watercolour. You’ll learn the four key steps that I apply to all my paintings and discover what makes watercolour so satisfying to anyone who would use it with authority and purpose.


    Together we’ll paint:

    Picklecombe fort, Kingsand/Cawsand, Plymouth, UK

    The Poolbeg Stacks, Dublin, Ireland
