Overview

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!
