Painting realistic skies with watercolors may be very challenging, because paint flows fast in different directions, cloud shapes are hard to control, and mixing  blue and yellow without getting green can be a real issue. In thos class I'll teach you to master these things.

Join this class and you will discover:

  • Technical exercises for better paints and water control
  • Color theory for blue + yellow blends for the sky that won't give greens
  • Limited color palette for realistic sunsets
  • Tips for keeping the paper wet for longer

The lesson may be interesting both for amateurs artists who never stop improving their technique and for courageous beginners.

I'm looking forward to seeing you in the class!


Here are materials I used in this project:

- Watercolor paper - Arсhes -  100% cotton, cold pressed, 300 gsm + paper for color test and exercises

- Brushes: Flat goat brush 4cm, Round squirrel brush 5mm, round mixed brush 10mm, round synthetic brushes 3-6 mm

- Colors: Napples yellow red (Rembrand); Sennelier: Naples yellow, Indanthrene blue, French vermilion, Royal blue, Neutral tint

- Clipboard + masking tape

- Water spray (Derwent)

- Paper towels

- Cup of water
