About the Class

Do you love pets? In this course, you will learn basic watercolor techniques while painting a cute cat.

Here you will feel comfortable with each step you make because each step is explained and demonstrated. Here you will know what you will get in the end. It is not a fantasy "do whatever" class, it is an actionable course where you will learn the real techniques and create realistic art.

This class expects people of intermediate level to participate, but it is great for all levels since I explain every step I take, demonstrate the process, and introduce all necessary techniques. No matter your level, you will have all the tools needed to paint this adorable ginger cat with me.

What will you get inside the course?

  • A detailed explanation of all art supplies I've used in this course + useful suggestions and alternatives.
  • Carefully planed-out preparation for the class.
  • Demonstration of the sketching process.
  • Explanation of all colors used in the class + each paint I used is mentioned and written down.
  • Break down of the color scheme for the painting.
  • Step by step demonstration of the painting process with an explanation of each move. Cat portrait is broken down into blocks: first layers, second layers, eyes/nose/mouth, body, background, details.

What will you learn in this course?

  • How to sketch a portrait of a cat on your chosen paper format?
  • How to prepare the color scheme for your particular artwork?
  • Rules of color mixing: primary and complementary colors, tones, and density.
  • How to use the wet-on-wet technique on cellulose paper?
  • How to use the layering technique?
  • How to fix mistakes and accidents on time?
  • How to paint realistic eyes: tones, shadows, highlights?
  • How to recreate the fluffy effect of cat's fur?

This class will lead you through the whole process of painting a realistic cat from scratch to a final result in real-time. No speeding up the video, no covering up mistakes - you will see all of it.

Here you will combine different watercolor techniques: layering, wet-on-wet, dry-on-dry, a loose style, and great detailing.
