About This Class

My name is Eugenia Sudargo also known as nianiani on YouTube, and I will be your teacher for this Class on How to paint pastries with watercolor, as requested by a few of you. 

In this class I will take you through the steps that I do to paint my pastries with watercolor.I will first take you through the supplies we need, and then we will go straight into drawing the pastries, which are optional, because I will also have a template available for the outline of the pastries, though I do recommend students to also draw along. After that I will take you into how to trace your drawings on to your watercolor paper and then we go straight to painting. 

I will break down the painting into sections which covers:

  • Colour palette
  • Base colours
  • Mid tones and base textures
  • Defining textures
  • Dark tones and outlining
  • Highlights and finishing touches

On the last lesson, I will take you through a speedpaint of the 2nd pastry, and I would recommend for the students to take part in painting the 2nd pastry using the techniques that they have learnt through out the class.

This class is geared towards intermediate painters, it is recommended for students who have had experience in watercolor painting. But feel free to try and follow through as a beginner, because there might also be a few things you can pick up along the way.

Don't be discouraged if your painting doesn't look exactly the same as mine, because this class is aimed for the students to incorporate their own styles into the painting, and encourage students to use the steps and techniques to create their own interpretation of pastry painting/s where the students also become more of an independent painter.

Hope you enjoy this class!

Very nice. Good presentation, slow and careful.
The color palette is the single most important watercolor class I've ever taken. It dramatically improved my food illustrations.

Watercolorist and Graphic Designer

Hi, my name is Eugenia, and I go by Nia. I'm a graphic design graduate from Curtin University, Western Australia, who loves to paint with watercolours. In my final year, my teachers back in university noticed that most of my design works incorporate watercolours. So I guess I picked up the medium by accident, but now I'm totally in love with them. They're so versatile, flexible and wild at the same time. There are times you need to tame and control them, but there are also times you let the w...
