Course "Winter landscapes"
  • You can't find the center of interest?
  • You can't manage to make the darkest darks?
  • You can't save the freshness of white?
  • You overdone your painting while you tried to manage the tonal values?
  • Your attention is constantly attracted by color and the painting fails in tone?
  • You generally have no idea, what is tone and tonal values?

"Color gets all the credit but tone does all the work". So let's learn how to make tone work properly. 

Winter is the perfect time to understand tonal relationships. What is lighter, what is darker, what are the variations of grey, how to bring an object forward or backward? All of this is best explored by excluding color and limiting the work to 1 or 2 colors. And the best time to do it is of course winter, when you can create an amazing graphic work with just one paint.

We will learn not only to analyze tonal relations, but we will also practice creating monochrome works in warm and cool tones, adding a second color and even mixing all the colors of our palette to get one neutral tone. We will also learn to enhance our painting with spectacular accents, master several new techniques for creating textures.…

The course is created for all levels of mastery in watercolor. 

It is very useful for non-experienced artists (who will master the most important skill: transmitting the entire spectrum of tones from light to dark). 

This is also crucial for experienced artists who do not stop at what they can do and always eager to master their skills, learn new techniques and take a new challenge.

Full immersion

We don’t only teach you to follow a pattern or copy a piece, we teach you to think like an artist. We show you how to see the beauty in line and form, to express the mood of the picture, to call and direct the viewer’s attention and to carry the work from an idea to painting.


The lessons of the courses are built from “simple to complex” and in each subsequent lesson you will use and combine knowledge and skills gained in the previous one. This allows you to build a solid basis and achieve independence in painting.
