About This Class


This is the 1st class in a series of classes on sketching and painting a watercolour portrait. I am a self taught artist so I teach my classes from that perspective.  In this class, you will learn what works best for you and hopefully you will figure out how your brain tells you how to sketch a face. 

You will learn how to sketch a face and if you enroll in my next class, you will learn how to paint it as well.
