Video Courses for Beginners

The course is designed so that we can gradually delve into the basics of watercolor. In the end you will be able to create competent and compelling watercolor artworks.

But the most important thing that makes Michael workshops and courses so popular is the personal experience of the master. Masters rarely share their secrets and personal techniques as generously as Michael does.

All material is presented in a simple form that facilitates the gradual ascent of the stairway to watercolor mastery.

BASIC TECHNIQUES, part 2

In the second lesson of the course we continue to study the basic watercolor techniques. In this lesson, you will get acquainted with the soul of watercolor - wet on wet. Without a doubt, this is the most important technique. Michael will return to it several more times in other video tutorials, telling about its tricks and features.

Lifting on the wet paper is another technique that will bring a lot of light to your watercolors, allowing you to gently remove pigments.

The third part of the lesson is devoted to the Dry Brush technique - the very technique that gives so much vividness and spontaneity to watercolor paintings. And, as always, you can count on a lot of tips and secrets of the master.

Lesson Four: The Negative Space

Michael has always been called a “light artist”, as his watercolors are filled with sun and light. The basis of this effect is the use of negative space. In this lesson, you will acquire the key to understanding watercolors and discover the method behind the construction of shapes. Following the master step by step, you will make a watercolor of an orange.

Understanding the importance of negative space is the missing link that separates you from being able to competently build up a watercolor and learn how to depict light. It is the light that makes the watercolor vibrant, light and airy.

Lesson Six: The Colors, Part Two

We continue to study colors. 

How to build your own palette?

What mixes can be obtained using a limited set of colors? In this lesson, you will find what watercolor artists usually do not want to share: personal secrets for the selection and mixing of colors.

 

The most valuable thing any master can share is their own experience.
