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!

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 :)
super course! very easy to follow and a funny explanation along the way. thanks!
This course is very easy and useful! I love that instructor explained everything but didn't distract me from actually painting. Portraits are challenging but she did a great job making it easy. Well done

Born in Ukraine, raised in the travel. 
I travel the World and paint everything I see in watercolor.

Last 3 years I lived in Thailand and I was teaching weekly watercolor workshops there. All my students were so excited and happy to see the progress that I've decided to take it to the next level and create an online course where people from all over the world can join and learn new skills.
