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.

Reviews of author`s courses
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!
Just a bit more indication on how wet the paper is supposed to be would have been welcome :) the rest is perfect. Thank you! I love the restult :)
Julia's explanations were very helpful for understanding how to paint the sea. I had the wrong paper (no 100% cotton), but I'm happy with the first result though. I'm curious how my paintings will look when I have bought 100% cotton paper. Thank you very much!
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

Very kind and charming instructor, excellent explanations, easy to follow. I especially liked the preparatory exercises to understand the specific watercolor technique Julia Barminova is using.
Julia Barminova explains very well her technique , very good course, thank you
excellent course with very good and comprehensible explanations
Very beautiful and helpful course, love it. Thank you Julia!
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 :-)
I like this course with a lot of details with the colours and the sketch. I didn't know that we can draw the reflections on the sea !
Clear instruction provided at a manageable pace.
