About This Class


Hello everyone!

I'm so happy to welcome you in this class about painting skies with watercolor. This class will be focusing on night skies and on how to paint skies than can be part of a landscape.

My name is Sarah and I'm a watercolor artist from France. I really love painting landscapes and creating atmospheres inspired by what I see around me.

In this fun class, you will learn:

  • what supplies to use
  • 8 different techniques that you can use to paint skies :


  • how to add stars in your sky
  • how to paint the moon
  • 3 step by step paintings :


I will walk you through my entire process, and at the end of this class, you will be able to implement these techniques to paint your own night skies with watercolor.

This class is great for beginners, or anyone who want to explore and discover new techniques, or just want to have fun painting skies!
