About This Class

Do you like watercolor? Did you want to try it but never had time? Are you already painting but need more advanced guidance? This course is for you: all you need is to relax, follow each step and listen to the comments. I lived in Vietnam for a new months and got inspired by a beautiful nature there. But mostly I was excited about sunny kids that run everywhere with a happy smile. I decided to paint one and teach you how to do it. After this course you will understand that watercolor is not that difficult. This is not a magic pill and it doesn't mean a portrait of a child will appear out of nowhere ;) The secret is - I will not only show you the techniques but also explain HOW watercolor works. I will share tricks and tips, break down all the techniques and answer any question that you might have - just send me a message!So now you are ready.Jump into the course and let's create!

Wonderful course. I do wish there wasn't music playing while she was speaking, but other than that, the course itself was fantastic.
Gosh it was cool! I don't like long boring explanations. but instructor here did everything quick but easy to follow. I just stopped the video when I needed to put more attention in details. BTW she actually is really responsive in instagram, so if you wanna ask her something personally -go for it!
I am so happy I took this class. It's fun, well-explained and very entertaining! I really started believing in my art capabilities more :) Highly recommended :)
