About the ArtRoom

Hello! I'm Jarnie, and welcome to Jarnie's ArtRoom, my online botanical painting school.

Having being a qualified teacher and educator since 2001, I'm always excited to welcome students to the vibrant world of botanical painting. Through my online tutorials, and projects you'll gain confidence, and develop new skills. Learn with me and begin to create the botanical watercolours you want. And really enjoy your painting.

With over 100 hours of online botanical painting content, there's something for everyone. Whether you're working full time, fitting in projects at the weekend, or have a bit more time, then I am here to help support, and guide you through some of my favourite subjects.

What do I get?

The ToolBox

The ToolBox is a practical series of equipment and studio based videos. Designed to help you organise your workspace, choose your kit and select your paper and paints, the ToolBox will help you.


The InPractice library of videos are designed to help you learn new techniques, and practice them first in simple to follow exercises. Perfect for a sketchbook, or for when you have little time.


We all need a little motivation to keep us going, and that's where our online Community comes in. It's so much better if we learn together. Here you can meet new friends, chat about the projects and see your completed tutorial pieces in your own Gallery.


With the projects, exercises and our lovely community there's lots to keep you inspired. Join Jaenie's mail list too and you'll also receive lots of lovely and inspiring ideas delivered straight to your inbox.

Get the Free Workshop

This beautiful Iris study is perfect for beginners. It's also great as a quick and easy project to try my watercolour tutorials.

It can be completed in just a few hours, and is a great introduction to all of my favourite painting techniques.

The 2 hour workshop is filmed 'as it happens' so you get all of the detail as I paint. Just like a live demo. NO speeding up and minimum editing. It's just me painting, and talking to you.

Watch the technique video from my YouTube channel.
