Last week I discovered Skillshare, an online platform with numerous creative workshops and challenges. After some doubt registered for a free trial period and in order to use it positively, I had to get started right away.
Still totally excited about the cups of coffee and the pastries, partly due to the #doodlechallenge van @Broekie en de workshop van Nanja illustraties op Instagram, viel mijn oog op de cursus koffie illustraties maken met waterverf van Mariya Popandopulo.
A surprising choice, because there are also many nature-oriented and animal-oriented workshops on it.
In the lessons we learned how to mix colors and paint different kinds of cups of coffee, paying attention to the coffee color, but also the foam and the whipped cream.
After the example lessons we were challenged to paint more cups of coffee using pictures.
The lessons were very clear and it was nice to be working on a theme. I get more and more convinced of the medium watercolour. Now look in the big haystack with workshops, after the “perfect" workshop to start later in the sun.
