About This Class

This is the second class in my watercolor course for begginners.

It contains information about color properties and basic watercolor exercises. 

I teach how to mix colors and make color circle and color map - necessary skill for every artist. And give fun practice exercises - basic techniques of painting. They are: plane fills, tone and color gradients, wet on wet painting, making patterns. 

In the end we will paint whales and two very easy landscapes.

In previous class class I give brief information of choosing art materials. If you don't have opportunity to watch it, I think you can understand the context in this class. 

If you have any questions please feel free to ask me:) In comments or e-mail: [email protected]
