How It Works

Each day of the challenge, you'll get a reference photo featuring an inspiring face and a video lesson in Sktchy Art School. Watch the lesson, paint your muse and share your portrait with a global community of art students.

Dive Deep into Watercolor & Gouache

With just a splash of water and a dab of color, you can bring your muse to life on the page. As watermedia, both watercolor and gouache invite you to loosen up, go with the flow, celebrate color, embrace "happy accidents" and experience the magic of painting. In this challenge, you'll immerse yourself in these magical mediums and grow as a painter, one face at a time. We'll cover:

• Application techniques (wet on wet, wet on dry, dry-brush, lifting, splashing, semi-transparent, pointillism, etc.)
• Color choice, mixing, placement, blending and layering
• Mapping values/negative space
• Edge control and variation
• Paint washes
• Adding highlights
• Creating texture
• And more!
