Meet Your Teacher

Dritan Duro is a self-taught watercolor artist based in London.

"Working in watercolor gives me a great sense of satisfaction, especially when I start to lay down those first washes and see them take on a life of their own.

"What I love most is watercolor's vibrant and translucent nature - no other medium can match the transparency and glow that you can achieve with it.

"After years of practice and lots of trial and error, I've discovered how to surrender myself to the medium and let the water be my guide.

"Choosing the reference photo for my painting is another important part of my work. I look at lighting, values, focal points, color harmony and more.

"All in all, my goal is to capture likeness, mood and feeling in my portraiture. Together these are my artistic 'Holy Trinity'.

"I will share all of this, my full approach to painting watercolor portraits, in this class. I can't wait to paint with you."
