Painting portraits is a skill many artists are dreaming of. To make portraits resembling your models, to express emotions, to show the features of every person you paint, and to hear cries of admiration – isn’t it wonderful? 


In this course, we will learn everything we need to know about portraits! We will see how to mix colors for skin shades, get the right proportions of the human face, use a diversity of textures for hair, skin, and eyes, and practice different watercolor techniques.


A world-famous artist Konstantin Sterkhov will accompany us in this exciting journey to make the process easy and engrossing. Join us and become a master of watercolor portraits!
