Purpose of the courses

During these courses, you will learn to make traditional watercolor and oil techniques applied to the theme of portrait through two courses where works are made from start to finish. For 5 hours and a half, you will be able to contemplate Juan Ruiz's demonstrations and advice, as well as explanations and breakdowns of his entire process in simple steps that will allow you to apply these procedures later in your own work.

Once the whole process is finished, you will be able to add a greater wealth of attitude to your paintings.
