How It Works

Each day of the challenge, you get a reference photo featuring an inspiring face and a video lesson on Sktchy. Watch the lesson, paint your muse and share your painting with a global community of fellow participants. Note: Some but not all lessons will include the drawing phase.

Brush up. Dive deep.

Watercolor invites you to loosen up, go with the flow, celebrate color, embrace "happy accidents" and experience the joy of painting.

In this challenge, you'll immerse yourself in this magical medium and grow as a painter, one face at a time. We'll cover:

• Application techniques (wet-on-wet/alla prima, wet-on-dry, etc.)
• Color choice, mixing, placement, blending, layering, texturing
• Mapping values/negative space
• Edge control and variation
• Paint washes, blooms
• Water control
• Lifting techniques
• Highlighting
• Measuring and painting without a preliminary sketch
• Artistic thought process
• Underpainting
• Pattern making
• Composition
