What will you achieve? 

In Agnes Cecile’s workshop, you will get a deeper understanding on how to make watercolor portraits in an expressive and intuitive way.

The first day of workshop will be focused on the presentation of the main points and crucial aspects of the watercolor technique, paying attention to the interaction of water and paper and how the colors behave on paper, during this day, we will work on a monochrome portrait

In the next days we will work on realistic subjects and natural color palettes as well on how to use watercolor to create shadows and contrasts.

The teacher

Silvia Pelissero was born in Rome, Italy, in 1991. She started to draw when she was a child. When she published her earliest watercolor paintings online, she signed them as “agnes-cecile” for the first time. After attending a fine arts high school, she kept on following her vocation, experimenting with different painting techniques and discovering how to express herself through her images.
She soon became popular on social networks, which allowed her to reach a large public globally. After several solo exhibitions in Rome she joined events, held workshops and took collaborations in different worldwide locations in US, Canada and Europe.
She took the chance to improve her workshop quality since she joined winsor&newton as an ambassador.
