Course description

This course offers an exciting adventure into the world of watercolour art and travel, helping you expand your skills and create art in various settings.

Julia passionates about the idea of combining travel and art. It means stepping out of the studio and traveling to different places to choose scenes for your artwork. It's about capturing more than just details and colours on paper.

Julia's workshops are designed to teach you how to paint effectively, not just in the studio but also in unexpected places like quaysides, ports, cafes, and city streets.

Join us on this artistic journey into the world of architectural watercolour, where we'll unlock the magic of light and shadows in art.

This is a LIVE-Course, the recording will be uploaded after the course and will be available to all participants for 8 weeks.

Julia Barminova
Watercolour artist
Since 2012 Julia works in watercolour technique, combining the classical school with her own exclusive methods. She is inspired by trips to the fishing villages and the largest port cities of the world. Julia has begun her most famous series of watercolours "Islands in the Stream", dedicated to the play of light and colour on the
water surface and to the structure and configuration of the ships, boats and yachts. She is constantly holding different workshops, demo classes and presentations in Italy, Switzerland, France, Holland, Cyprus, Russia, Ukraine, Germany, Spain, Portugal and many more. By doing that she is trying to rise awareness of watercolour technique, styles and methods of painting, importance of right tools and selfstyle.
