Learning with me on YouTube

Change is afoot at Ann Mortimer Art HQ, so I thought I’d post a quick update here on the blog.

As many of your know, my DVD ‘Watercolour Techniques by Ann Mortimer’ has been available over on the website since 2014, and there are also lots of tutorial videos on my YouTube channel, including the Clematis demo I filmed a few weeks back, which you can view here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQkJGUikdZ4

Recently, YouTube added the possibility of offering rental and purchase options for videos. This came just at the right time for me, as I have nearly run out of DVDs to sell!

So, as from today, two of the three* videos on the DVD will be available to either purchase or rent directly from YouTube, and the physical DVD will not longer be for sale (there are still a few left if you’re quick). If you rent a video on YouTube you will be given access for 72 hours. Purchasing a video makes this access permanent: You will always be able to watch the video on YouTube, but you don’t actually download it. And don’t worry about moving your computer to your painting desk – you can view the videos on tablets and smartphones too, and they look great. Best of all: you have instant access! There’s no waiting around for your DVD to arrive, you can start watching and painting right away! (*We are still working on making “Negative Painting” available.)

Finally, one more thing: As well as releasing the DVD videos on YouTube, I have also filmed a completely new demonstration which will available exclusively to rent or buy on YouTube. The subject is Sunny Dog Roses and you will be able to view extracts of the videos for free.

So lots of news! I am very excited about expanding the YouTube channel to offer instant purchase and rental videos, and I really hope lots of you will enjoy them and channel the inspiration into your own watercolour painting.

    1. Only just seen this Patrick, sorry! If you are using an ipad, you will not get instructions about buying and renting. this is an annoying thing that YouTube need to sort out. on a desktop computer or laptop, you will get buying instructions when you view the videos. It comes up as a blue button with a price on it, starting at 99p. You click on this and then are taken to a page which explains how to buy usually using paypal. I hope you will be able to access the info. Thanks for your query…let me know if theres any thing else I can help with.. Ann
