Description

Do you like watercolor? Did you want to try it but never had time? Are you already painting but need more advanced guidance? This course is for you: all you need is to relax, follow each step and listen to the comments.

I lived in Vietnam for a new months and got inspired by a beautiful nature there. But mostly I was excited about sunny kids that run everywhere with a happy smile. I decided to paint one and teach you how to do it.

After this course you will understand that watercolor is not that difficult. This is not a magic pill and it doesn't mean a portrait of a child will appear out of nowhere ;) The secret is - I will not only show you the techniques but also explain HOW watercolor works. I will share tricks and tips, break down all the techniques and answer any question that you might have - just send me a message!

So now you are ready.

Watercolor artist traveling the world

Hey, I'm Ukrainian travelling the world.
I've been passionate about art since my childhood and now can't imagine my day without it. I've been painting all my life and now my life is all about art and travel. Wherever I go I have my watercolor with me. I capture people I've met, places I've visited and emotions I've felt. All those stories are told in watercolor and I'm happy to share them with people.

I was exhibited in Ukraine and Asia, I teach watercolor workshops in cities I travel to (such as Chiang Mai or Da Nang), I produce handmade sketchbooks for artists and write watercolor E-books.

I believe you don't need a school to start painting. Because creating is about expressing your personal feelings not just working on techniques. You learn techniques because you Want to learn them. You keep practicing because you Want to get better. And this is just your passion, desire to improve and create that drives you.

I don't follow a traditional school technique but prefer to listen to my own voice and paint from my own perspective. This allowed me to come up with my own style people start to recognize and which is different from a traditional school approach. And that is why it's interesting.

I'd love to share my experience and techniques with you, please feel free to ask me any questions and share your artworks with me.

And thank you for joining me for this beautiful art journey
