The Dog Museum Painting Workshops Artist's course

Watercolor lessons: advices, tips and tricks by a professional painter
Author: Cyrille_Jubert,

As I used a paintbrush for the first time in october 96, I don't claim to be better than anyone. I have a lot to learn and very few to teach.
A few Fine Arts Magazines and artists forums published my works in progress giving me an international audience that still surprises me everyday.
The more you give, the more you receive. So I am very happy to offer you a few tips and tricks.
