👉 Trying to paint with watercolours but have no idea where to start, so end up feeling overwhelmed?

👉 Chasing and piling tutorials but never picking up the brush, so results are nowhere to be seen?

👉 Dreaming of painting freely whatever you want but constantly doubting yourself?

👉 Are you telling yourself a story about talent even though it's not true?  solo?

👉 Feeling stuck, so getting new ideas on how to paint would be lovely.

👉 Binge-watching YouTube videos but hardly ever paint along them? 


Painting and drawing are skills. Everybody can learn them. 

Picture this: you're about to start an amazing watercolour painting. But, instead of feeling excited, the thought of making a mistake and wasting your supplies paralyzes you.

You're not alone.

Most of my students felt the same way before they joined my watercolour classes.

Or maybe you're different type. Followed countless tutorials, yet your art still doesn't seem to match the vibrant paintings shown in the videos.


And then there's the YouTube trap.


No matter how many videos you watch or how much effort you put in, you still can't seem to master watercolour. The colours blend into a muddy mess, and you end up with a paper catastrophe. Sound familiar?


Trust me, I totally get it! In reality, I have been there.

It is no secret that I hated watercolours so much! I was a realistic drawer, not a painter! Water ran everywhere, and I liked to have control over each line, you know? 

But I pushed myself out of my comfort zone. This is what we creative people are doing, aren't we? 

Fast forward. When I started teaching watercolour in Cork, Ireland, I quickly realised that the biggest obstacles for my students to paint with watercolours lie in two things:

       👉lack of solid watercolour/art fundament 

       👉having an experienced guide who can pinpoint exactly what needs to be improved and               HOW. 


This is why I created my 6 weeks of watercolour workshop - From Blank Paepr to Masterpiece

where I distilled all that I have been teaching personally. 

And I saw that it had a big impact, and my students improved their paintings. 

My classes get down to the nitty-gritty of painting. You will understand how watercolours work, why shadows create 3D effects so you stop painting flat, how perspective works, how to mix colours, and how to incorporate structure into painting. You will also naturally gain confidence along the way. 

Only when you know how everything works together,  you can start to paint with confidence. 

I will show you that painting is not about talent. 

I explain all techniques and principles in detail. Most importantly, I put everything into context so that you can confidently use the knowledge you get along the way with me while painting on your own. 

Because you will know how to do it right. 

All LIVE sessions take place within a private, exclusive "Watercolor Masterclass" member-only site, offering a supportive environment for your artistic growth.

Whether your goal is to paint with confidence, enjoy the creative process, or proudly exhibit your results, this masterclass provides the perfect solution for show-off. 

You will have my support and personal guidance. 


You can book me a 1:1 - 60-minute private session FOR FREE!

Isn't it just FAB? 

I will show you that 


"Silvia's classes are absolutely a game-changer! She transformed my  watercolor painting in ways I couldn't have imagined. Just starting out with her in private classes, I was unsure about the best materials to invest in. But the advice she gave me was like a compass, guiding me towards the right choices while keeping costs low."

Niamh O'Connolly, West Cork, Ireland

I'm a tattoo artist, so I wanted to know how to draw. I know Silvia; she is such a talented artist. I like her realistic drawings. 

Her classes rocked up my drawing skills so quickly! 

Thank you for it!

Daniel Donovan, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Chloe O'Sullivan, Dublin, Ireland

My watercolour journey was full of struggle and doubts. I told myself that I did not have a talent, so I stopped creating at all. I just picked up the brush few and far between. This was frustrating because I loved painting!

When I met Silvia, she changed everything. The way I'm painting now, she showed me how to approach and embrace the creative process and how to work on limiting beliefs.

Thank you!

If you can hold a pen, you can paint. 

I'm Sisa • Artist & Tutor • Painter • Realistic Drawer


Have you ever felt that you have to have a talent to create art? Talent is a myth. YEP. Drawing and painting are skills that everybody can learn.


Sure, you have to have a spark inside, lit up the fire, passion for it. But passion is not a talent.

I'm teaching people how to paint and draw from the basics simply because painting skills are like building a house. Starting with a fancy chimney is not a good idea...

You need a solid foundation of how watercolours work to create art freely and paint confidently. Practice more is not working if you have no idea what you are doing on the paper and what is wrong!

I'm here to help you build a solid painting foundation, confidently create art, and conquer the fear of blank paper.
