About This Class

My name is Katya. And I have been painting with watercolor for almost 5 years. During this time, I made more than 60 offline workshops. And now I want to share my knowledge with more people. I believe that everyone can draw and I want you to believe in this too!

This lesson is perfect for watercolor lovers of all levels.

If you just start drawing, then you will learn the "wet on wet" technique and how to draw without any color.

If you already paint with watercolors, you can deepen your knowledge of color contrast and watercolor techniques.

In addition, I will tell you:
- how to make gradient fill;
- about drawing using clean wet brush;
- how to draw waves;
- how to draw small details using colored pencils;
- how to draw volume using color contrast.

In the end of the lesson, you will get a new watercolor drawing and the skills that you will need in the further study of watercolor.

You can find reference photo and my drawings into the attached files.
