Overcome the challenges of watercolor portraits and take control of your painting!

…The place is HERE, and the time is NOW!

If painting the human portrait is a challenge or mystery, then come learn Fail-Proof yet Simple Techniques in a class offered by an illustrator and watercolor art teacher: Eliza, the Watercolour Witch.

She has taught more than 6000 students all over the world on how to watercolor the easy way and will be sharing her secrets to painting facial features and skin tones to capture the likeness of your subject.

In this painting class, Eliza have made the entire process easy. That means…

  • You won’t be learning how to draw a portrait. You will have a line art template ready, so all you do is color the line art into the finished painting.
  • The portrait you will paint won’t be in realistic style but in Eliza’s signature style. So, if you like her artworks, you can learn her techniques on how to paint portraits like hers.

This class will combine instructions, demonstrations, and discussion!

This class is perfect for Beginners (even if you’ve never handled a brush before) and Experienced Artists (who can pick up some new techniques).


I’m sure by now you must have guessed what we will be painting in this watercolor portrait class. And if you guessed “a magical being that lives in the forest,” then you are absolutely correct!

Since childhood Eliza was interested in folklore and magical things, so that’s why she decided to paint this faery-like creature and teach you how to paint it too.

This fairy in the painting is a wood wife and according to Germanic mythology, wood wives are a class of fairy people who inhabit the forests of Germany and Scandinavia.

Wood wives are generally gentle and helpful to humans who happen to pass through the forest. They may show lost travelers the way out or teach what herbs to use to treat sickness.

If you take the class, you can upload your fairy painting so Eliza can give you support if you got stuck during the painting process. You can as well ask Eliza anything that’s related to the painting process.



In the class Eliza is going to talk about:

  • How to paint this forest fairy from line art to finish.
  • How to mix skin color with just a basic color pallette.
  • How to create colorful hair.
  • How to create an effortless monochrome forest background.
  • Techniques which will make your portrait more outstanding.

And much more...

Moreover you can discover and practice basic inking techniques with Eliza.

While in other classes you need to sketch the project yourself, in this beginner-friendly class a downloadable line art template (coloring page) is included, which takes away the stress of having to produce a sketch before the painting.
