Hi! My name is Erika Barriga and I'm a watercolor illustrator and painter. When I started painting I used to just wet my paper, choose some colors and go. I honestly wasn't happy with the art I was producing and I had no idea why. I would get a muddy mess instead of art I was proud of. Once I realized the issue was my understanding of colors and I learned how to color mix, everything changed.
Let me teach you too so your art can be even more beautiful.
“Wonderful course! I went through it to add my own graphics to my printables. I absolutely loved it and am feeling so good about painting with watercolors now. Something I’ve been wanting to do forever, but didn’t dare to. It’s a very good breakdown of what can be a daunting subject, turned into a simple, non-overwhelming and fun project. Absolutely in love with my paintings already. Thank you Erika Barriga!” - Color Mixing Course Student - Lucienne Beau - @luciennebeau on Instagram
Virtual Watercolor Summer Camp with Erika was such a great experience for us! I was a little hesitant to try an online summer camp for an 8-year-old, and it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Erika was very patient—both with my daughter and with the tech glitches on our end—and my daughter was able to expand her artistic knowledge and feed her passion. In the comfort of our own home, no less! If you're looking for an instructor who is kind, patient, talented, and who doesn't require hours of back-and-forth in traffic, Erika is your woman!

I happen to absolutely adore her illustrations! They kind of make me want to have another baby just so I can fill a whole nursery with her art!
