About This Class

This class is about how to create the perfect watercolor washes (monochrome, gradient, multicolor, different shapes...) without defects, like professionals.

To do this, firstly we will learn how to make the rich tone tone of the paint, and then I will show the step-by-step technique of creating of perfect washes. This is an absolutely understandable process, any skill level will able manage with it

We will create a one-color wash, which is often used to painting objects and backgrounds, a gradient wash (for example, for drawing the sky), a figured wash of complicated objects, a multicolor wash.

As a Class Project, I suggest you to have fun, turn on your imagination and create some bright and simple illustrations, applying the new skills. In these illustrations, the main thing is a beautiful, homogeneous background, because it is exactly what my course is about.

Mastered skills will allow to bring illustrations to a qualitatively higher level. I'm sure about it!
