Learn to create color schemes that reflect your personality and artistic sensibility

In painting, design, fine arts and in any artistic branch, having a great mastery of color is fundamental and even as important as mastering the technique in question. The painter and illustrator Ana Victoria Calderón, after a long career working with watercolor, combines and plays like nobody else with the colors in her organic-style creations.

In this course, Ana Victoria will teach you the knowledge of mixing and theory so that you develop two color palettes applied to illustrations, unlike her previous courses in which she focused more on the part of techniques to illustrate: Modern watercolor techniques , to learn how to use the medium and Applied techniques of illustration in watercolor , complementary course to practice botanical and compositional elements.
