Watch her create a portrait of a fairy with watercolor… and do the same following her easy-to-follow steps!

Is this you?

You…

  • Love to paint, but worry that you’re not artistic enough and will not be able to paint as well as other people

  • Try to learn watercolor techniques by reading books that sound easier than they really are

  • Find it difficult to control the amount of water to paint ratio on the paper

  • Struggle with wet on wet consistently; have difficulty in figuring out how much water to use when painting with watercolors

  • Wish you could control the flow of the paint more

  • Always have a hard time finding a motive. And when you finally do you struggle to make your painting look exactly like what you have in mind.

I could go on and on about the different struggles that painters like you go through every day, but that won’t change anything – it’ll only make matters worse.

You don’t want a constant reminder of what you’re doing wrong. What you need is a way out, a fun new way to start creating the watercolor portrait painting of your dreams.

Although it doesn’t look like it…

and you may be thinking that this is way too hard. Trust me it is WAY easier than it looks. If you can trace an outline and color it in, you can do this. Seriously, you have to try it!

And The Best Part…

You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars in art school or spend years learning things that work and things that don’t!

What if you could skip all that and get a professional step-by-step training from a watercolorist who has taught more than 23000 students around the globe on how to watercolor with ease?

That way you don’t spend your precious days collecting hundreds of art supplies you’ll never use or buying art books and watching countless watercolor videos that in the end just make you want to give up painting entirely!

You want something a bit more structured. The RIGHT training that cuts off all the fluff and teaches you the ONLY things that matter – basically everything you need to master creating your own watercolor portrait.

Introducing…

WHAT ARE WE PAINTING?

I’m sure by now you must have guessed what we will be painting in this watercolor portrait class. And if you guessed “a magical being that lives in the forest,” then you’re absolutely correct!

Since childhood Eliza was interested in folklore and magical things, so that’s why she decided to paint this faery-like creature and teach you how to paint it too.

This fairy in the painting is a wood wife and according to Germanic mythology, wood wives are a class of fairy people who inhabit the forests of Germany and Scandinavia.

Wood wives are generally gentle and helpful to humans who happen to pass through the forest. They may show lost travelers the way out or teach what herbs to use to treat sickness.

If you take the class, you can upload your fairy painting so Eliza can give you support if you got stuck during the painting process. You can as well ask Eliza anything that’s related to the painting process.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

In this course Eliza is going to talk about:

  • How to paint this forest fairy from line art to finish.

  • How to mix skin color with just a basic color pallette.

  • How to create colorful hair.

  • How to create an effortless monochrome forest background.

  1. Skin tones: choosing skin colours, creating palettes, using the colour wheel in graphic software to help choose the right tones, using non-standard colours for skin.

  8. Sculpting approach to painting: painting without the use of a sketch and guide lines, "building/sculpting" the painting and treating it as clay that can be distorted, cut, rebuilt, reshaped at any time.

  9. Smart rendering: indicating when it is worth to focus on details and when it is unnecessary, deliberately leaving "unfinished" objects/parts of a painting to achieve specific results.

  10. Light and shadow as an aftereffect: adding "dramatic" light effects at the end of the painting process (when it's finished/almost finished), "saving" an average work with interesting character lighting, overview of useful layers.

Acrylic Painting with Diamond: Reductive Painting

Learn the fun and creative technique of reductive painting for FREE!

Created by Jeff Diamond - IT Instructor, fine artist, and U.S. veteran

"]

Students: 1304, Price: Free

In this free course I will teach you the basics of the reductive technique of painting. Reductive painting is a fun way to make art because it combines a number of different art styles, such as abstraction and impressionism, with an almost sculptor's approach to creating the subject of the piece. This painting technique can also be done in different ways: with random abstract shapes; a collage of photos; and even with one large image.

My courses are low-budget, but real world taught. I hope you will join me in the studio!

Thank you.

Abstract Painting - Create Your First Abstract Painting, Step-by-Step

Students: 1129, Price: Free

Hello, my name is Josué Andrade García and I am an independent artist from Oaxaca, Mexico.

I am passionate about expressing my way of seeing life through photography, music, and painting. I use paint to capture the way I see and experience nature, and my environment, on a canvas.

I think that art can help find the peace and creativity that each of us carries within, so my intention is not to impose a method, but to give my students the tools to awake the artist within them.

The Covid-19 quarantine, which I've lived in my hometown in Oaxaca, Mexico, served as an inspiration to create this course. I hope that my students enjoy the course as much as I enjoyed creating it and that through painting, music, and photography, they continue trying new things and awaking their creativity.

Painting Eucalyptus Flowers in Watercolour

How to create detailed and beautiful Eucalyptus flowers in watercolour

Created by Cheryl Hodges - Botanical Artist

"]

Students: 402, Price: Free

If you have ever looked at Eucalyptus flowers and thought they are too difficult to paint, then this is the tutorial for you. In this short course you will learn to observe Eucalyptus flowers, looking at the light and shade, in order to then draw a tonal study. After completing a careful, detailed drawing you will move on to paint the flowers from two slightly different angles., and then paint them in detail. I will talk you through every step, showing that they are not that difficult if you just go one step at a time.

This is bonus content, useful for students who have completed the tutorial "Introduction to Botanical Art - Eucalyptus leaves". However it isn't absolutely necessary to have completed that tutorial. This tutorial is fairly casual, I'm just talking as I'm painting and there is minimal editing.

I am a botanical artist with over 20 years experience and I have created two tutorials already - both introductions to botanical art, one painting Eucalyptus leaves and the other painting an Acacia - leaves and flowers. Botanical art is immensely popular at the moment and it is a beautiful art form. By painting the wonderful natural wonders we see around us, we encourage others to take a closer look at these marvels. My hope is that by painting and teaching, I will help others see the beauty in their surroundings, and therefore increase their interest and love for nature.
