Welcome to learn watercolors with me! I am happy and thrilled that you are here because
I am a watercolor junkie.
Yes, that is the only way I can put it. I can draw, I can paint with oils and with acrylics, I enjoy playing with Photoshop
but none of that comes even close how much I enjoy painting with watercolors.
This love for watercolors began very early on. I must have been 7 or 8, around the same time I realized that I wanted to become a children´s book illustrator and enjoyed watching sweet watercolor illustrations in story books.
Watercolor is not an easy medium, but once you learn the basics of it and you keep practicing it becomes something easy and natural.
I hope you enjoy this course and I can´t wait to see your creations.
