Paint Birds in 6 Styles Intensive Course

Watercolor Winter Forest

Inside this watercolor course

This is a course-exploration of various styles you can watercolor in. Here we won’t talk & paint one specific thing, here we will discover painting styles such as: realistic, impressionistic, illustration, mixed, grisaille and sumi-e.

Each lesson in this course is devoted to one style that Yana will present to you, explaining its main features and ways to approach it in watercolor. To understand the theory better we will put knowledge into practice and paint a bird in the particular style Yana is talking about.

This way you will not only see a theory in action but also paint 6 beautiful watercolor birds!

    You will also learn what materials are necessary for each style since you can’t just use any paper or any brush. Each style requires its special approach and tools.
