About This Class

Silhouette designs are simple and elegant, with watercolor techniques we can add them a fresh, contemporary twist. Silhouettes can be used in logo design and branding, as well as on a wide range of products such as stationery, wall art or fabric design.

Original silhouette paintings make wonderful gifts for you dear ones. 

In this class, I will explain step by step how to create beautiful silhouettes from your own picture (or my drawings) using watercolor techniques.

You can find the list of supplies and the outlines for your silhouettes in the project section of the class. 

If you are a watercolor beginner, I invite you to take my 2 watercolor basics classes, to better understand this beautiful medium:

I am looking forward to seeing your beautiful silhouettes!
