About This Class

c113214e.JPEG

This past year we have all discovered different ways to stay indoors and somewhere we have lost the connection with nature. A year has passed, 4 seasons have passed. Nature changed its color palette and we could only watch it through our windows. As we are celebrating world watercolor month, I thought it’s a great idea to travel around the world to witness all the seasons with watercolors.

This class is designed in a daily challenge forma which will run for 30 days, every week we will be exploring a new season and we will do 7 beautiful watercolor paintings.
Watercolor is a beautiful medium which is known for its transparency and unpredictability. I have been using watercolor since my childhood and every-time I start a new painting, I feel as excited as I was when I started. This course is not just about creating 30 paintings but it is more about learning new techniques, its a power packed course where you will learn so many tips, tricks and techniques which is definitely going to be an asset for your future art practice. 

If you like this class, please leave a review that will help this class reach more students.

I'm so excited to have you here. Thanks a lot for joining :)

Hey there! Myself Zaneena Nabeel, an architect by profession and an artist by everything. I'm originally from India, currently based in Dubai. I experiments and enjoys all sorts of medium. For me art is a therapy and I find immense happiness playing with colours.

Since early childhood I loved to draw and paint. when I joined for my architecture studies I totally gave up on art as I got so busy with my studies, but the love for art was growing deep inside me. Once I graduated and moved to Dubai I started investing little of time on art. I started visiting art events and talks and realized the endless world of colours waiting for me. Within no time I took my tools and came back in action and started an Instagram page and here I'm :) 

Now I conduct local/... See full profile
