Discover the famous technique of traveling watercolorist.


How many times have you got your breath taken by the beauty of sea waves? And how many times you wanted to paint sails, light and colors of the surface? All these sailing ropes, fishing tackle. You can almost hear cries on seagulls by now, right?


But how many times have you tried to acquire just the right technique to get the results you wanted? That is exactly the answer that you will find here!

Julia Barminova is a watercolor artist that visited more than 50 different port cities over the world looking for new seascapes and inspiration. And on April 11th she will start broadcasting her first online workshop in English. How to get the best image of water, the spirit of port and all the nuances of watercolor technique will be the main topics of this online class.

The most important part is that you will learn to paint water effectively not only in studio but also outside in your travels and on pleinairs.
