About This Class

Welcome!

In this class I presented standard "best practices" and less standard tricks useful in painting skies and using watercolors in general.

You'll learn how to (among others):

-easily make different types of clouds

-depict the right mood, weather and time of day

-use tools like salt, gum arabic and paper towel to create interesting and naturally looking textures

Each video is devoted to a different kind of sky - from sunny to apocalyptic, from sky at sunrise to the night sky.

How the sky looks have a huge impact on the atmosphere of the whole painting. Yet, it takes relatively short time to paint it, so it’s extra important to use this time wisely!

The class is dedicated to all watercolor enthusiasts, regardless the level of experience. I hope that you'll find here tips, that will be useful just for you!
