I'm so happy to see you here! I'm Julie and I am the artist behind Julily Art. I've been an artist most of my life but after years of being afraid to express myself in colour, here I am painting the rainbow and I am getting ready to teach you, too!

I love to paint watercolour and oils and my artistic journey revolves around the creation of vibrant and surreal portraits, interweaving elements of nature, florals, the human face, and whatever else I get obsessed with!

You can see my artwork here, get a commission here, or sign up for one of my awesome and exciting workshops here! I am excited to get to know you!

Painting with Watercolor


Painting Faces:
Surrealist Portrait  & Figure Compositions in Watercolour

Too often, artists are made to believe that the best art is a copy from life or from a photograph. While it certainly can be impressive, the artistic journey is so much more than being able to copy what you see! Let this course transport you to the dreamlike world of surrealism while still learning to paint with accuracy and skill. In this video-based course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of creating surrealist compositions and combining ideas and elements to painting unique and exciting portraits and figure compositions. This course will help you learn to infuse traditional portraiture with imaginative and evocative elements and build compositions that keep your eyes thirsty for more. 

I am a firm believer that it’s our insides that make us beautiful people and there is no reason a portrait shouldn’t show that. If you join this course, you’ll learn all about painting the best, most soulful portraits and figure compositions that keep people wanting more. 


Unlock the secrets of surrealism and watercolor portraiture in "Painting Faces: Surrealist Portrait + figure Compositions in Watercolour." Ignite your creativity, refine your skills, and embark on an artistic journey that will leave you mesmerized by the boundless possibilities of watercolour and the human face. Enroll today and let your brushes bring surreal dreams to life on paper!
