Great tutorial for beginners. Simple, clear and great results (see students projects)
I could have used some more guidance, and wished the voice track was louder, but I learnt a lot, and in a simple yet enjoyable way, thank you :)

Renato Palmuti

Illustrator and watercolor artist in Brazil

My name is Renato Palmuti

I am an Art Director, Illustrator and Painter.

I worked in advertising, sales and design agencies until 2001, when I focused my carrer in Illustration. I opened my studio in 2005 and since then I've been working for agencies and clients making images for their ads and campaigns.

Painting was always a paralell activity, but recently it has become an important part of my work. I started studing a lot the watercolor techniques, producing diverse paintings and I've been invited for making classes and workshops in various studios and art schools.
