More about this course

Welcome to the class! October is almost here and I feel the magic in the air, mornings are crisp and days so peaceful that it is a pure joy to paint every day. After I posted one of my whimsical landscapes on Instagram, I received many messages from you asking to film a class, I am always excited to hear your ideas and share with you everything I know. Framed landscapes make a great gift.

In this class, I am explaining step by step how to paint a magical landscape. We will be painting two landscapes, one more complex using a cool color palette and one more simple using warm hues, in this way you will understand the main principles of color mixing and wet on wet techniques, so you can create your own beautiful landscapes.

Happy painting,

x Irina
