More about this course

Hey, cuties, I am Comic black rainbow, I am a visual creator, and anime drawing educator.

Watercolor is magic between pigment and water that creates images and other painting techniques can’t present it. The characteristic is so varied and difficult to control so that we have to understand how to control the mastery of the water.

In this class, you’ll learn how to make multiple effects use with watercolor! It is great for beginners who never paint with watercolor or who are not familiar with painting watercolor!!! Or you want to know how to control water and learn some tips with watercolor, it’s suited for you!!! It’s not difficult so you just take easy, come into the class and learn something back!!!

I will demonstrate various wet color and effect techniques to you. After you learn those skills, I will demonstrate how to draw a painting with those techniques so that you will know how and when you can use those skills to paint. And I will give you a topic is landscape painting, you can paint a landscape painting with those techniques you learn for this class!!!
