About This Class

Watercolor is popular, unpredictable and absolutely magical. Also, it can be intimidating and challenging when you don't know the basics of this beautiful medium. In this class, I will show you the essential watercolor techniques needed to paint with confidence. The class is structured in small, easy to process segments of information. Take your time practicing and rewatch the videos as needed. Also, feel free to ask me any questions in the discussion section of the class. This class is suitable for beginners or for artists who would like to gain more confidence and clarity using the watercolor medium.

I have many project-based classes suitable to practice the skills you will learn during this class, I will list them below. Also, there are many amazing watercolor artists teaching here on Skillshare, so don't hesitate to watch their classes, practice is the key to beautiful results!

Welcome to the class and I can't wait to see your projects!

Great for begginers! Great class
What a great class! I need to practice more the gradient technique and learn more about values. The part of the effects was so interesting, I didn't know I can use alcohol and salt. :) Love this class!
