About This Class


Painting with watercolors is an amazing experience and you obtain results that you can´t get with any other medium.  In this class I'll show you how I paint my icons and illustrations with a mix of controlled and loose techniques. I'll also give you tips on how to improve your strokes and painting with mini practice exercises, and I'll show you how to achieve shading with the two techniques. You will also watch me paint every stage of my nesting doll and flowers, from the base, to the black details, to the white finishing touches that will make your illustrations come alive.

This class is suited for all levels.

Just what I was looking for, thank you so much!

I love mixing ...
