About This Class

Do you think watercolor is challenging or difficult to control? Always wanted to try but never started? This is the right moment!

I slowly explain every single step I do from a light sketch to a realistic portrait of a dog :) 
You will see the technique and be able to replicate my moves as important part of learning - is just following the procces ;) You'll learn about shading and color building, how to create realistic eyes and show emotions on your painting.
You can always ask me any quesions you want or need help with.
Just take an action!

Born in Ukraine, raised in travel. 
I am a professional watercolor artist, full-time traveler and a salsa lover ;)
After a burnout in the office, I hit the road without any plan and since 2014 I've been travelling around the globe, visiting different countries & settling down for a few months (sometimes years) in different cities. My watercolors are inspired by places I've visited and people I've met.

You can follow my travel-inspired adventures on Instagram.
