How many times have you got your breath taken by the beauty of sea waves? And how many times you wanted to paint sails, light and colors of the surface? All these sailing ropes, fishing tackle. You can almost hear cries on seagulls by now, right?
But how many times have you tried to acquire just the right technique to get the results you wanted? That is exactly the answer that you will find here!
Julia Barminova is a watercolor artist that visited more than 50 different port cities over the world looking for new seascapes and inspiration. And on April 11th she will start broadcasting her first online workshop in English. How to get the best image of water, the spirit of port and all the nuances of watercolor technique will be the main topics of this online class.
The most important part is that you will learn to paint water effectively not only in studio but also outside in your travels and on pleinairs.
Lectoroom is a unique online school of painting, drawing and illustration. Based on the author programs of the teachers with whom we cooperate, here you will learn a lot of new things in different techniques. When, where and how much. It's all online.

Reviews of author`s courses
Amazing my second course by Julia and I've learned so much. She is so talented it is really generous that she is sharing her skills and how she sees water, thank you!
I really loved it! Soooo many details, soo beautiful and useful! The only part where I wish the process was not cut is when Julia paints the waves, as a fundamental step and I have the feeling in some parts there were tiny little details missing of how she did it. But overall I have loved it and I am looking forward to trying it over and over again!
I really liked how Julia explained her painting - it was very useful for my own painting, I am very happy with it. Thank you very much.
Julia explained everything really nice and I had some mind-blown moments when I thought "oh this explains a lot, why I don't like some of my paintings" because I didn't thought much about contrasts of colors before. But now I will :) It was a bit difficult to read the english subtitles and watch Julia painting simultaneously, but it worked with stopping the videos and going back.
Very clear instruction on the techniques and colour mixing. Really enjoyed painting along!
I was so use full for me, I knew new opprouch
excellent course with very good and comprehensible explanations
Julia Barminova is the best teacher and I love her style very much. Hope there will be much more courses from her, for example painting lanterns or buildings :-)
Clear instruction provided at a manageable pace.
I loved the course, the explanations were clear and concise, video quality was very good. Thank you very much Julia for sharing your skills and knowledge.
Excellent course and explanation, clear and precise, very nice to follow! Julia is a wonderful teacher !
Excellent course very well explained, my only regret is that subtitles in English àre not fully available for lesson 2 ànd I could not find a reference photo, other than that Julia is an excellent teacher and I learned a lot !
I am absolutely in love with Julia's way of painting,, excellent lesson incredibly informative ad extremely enjoyable and very easy to follow. Hope to become as good as she is with my boats and water! There are many courses out there and I have followed many, but noone has been so helpful and useful both for technique and instructions provided.
Really like learning Julia's technique, would have love to be able to see or download the reference photo
