Painting is your passion
You love taking out your supplies and putting paint to paper. But there’s something that keeps getting in your way...
When you sit down to paint more advanced images, your mind goes blank. Where do you even start?
While painting, you start questioning yourself. How much water should I use on my paper? Where should I include more detail? How can other artists paint with such ease?
Even though you follow YouTube tutorials, you still feel like something’s missing. You’re ready to start creating realistic art that accurately expresses who you are as an artist because painting with watercolor is a hobby you want to stick with.
But that's not all...
- You’re ready to take on more advanced watercolor painting techniques, so your finished art has more depth, detail, and realism
- You want to feel confident sharing your art without feeling embarrassed or constantly comparing yourself to other artists
- You’re getting stuck in the details and just want to paint loosely without being limited by your current skills
- You want to be surrounded by people who encourage and support you as you’re learning and improving
Want in on a little secret?
You might think “top-notch” watercolor artists are born with some innate talent. But that’s not true. They reached that level by learning new techniques from other artists and practicing them over and over (without simply giving up when things became challenging).
The more techniques you learn, the easier it will be to develop your own painting style so you don’t have to rely on tutorials to create a beautiful work of art. You’ll know how to paint any image that inspires you, and you’ll feel relaxed throughout the entire painting process.
Your creative retreat for watercolor artists wanting to learn more advanced painting techniques.
You’ll get to dive into a new themed painting, exercises, and the instructions you’ll need to:
✔ Plan out your painting from start to finish
✔ Translate your reference image into your art without simply copying it
✔ Understand more about how watercolor behaves and how certain techniques will create desired effects on your paper
✔ Make your artwork look more realistic
✔ Express yourself freely with paint, so you can create your own artistic style
✔ Create momentum and a painting "self-care" routine that you can stick with

Hey, I'm Mako!
Watercolor artist and founder of Makoccino, where I help people find and share their own creative voice through watercolor painting.
For as long as I can remember, painting was a way for me to express myself and do something creative at the same time. And I'm passionate about helping others do the same.
Over the past decade, I've devoted my time to my YouTube channel to help other artists learn techniques and skills that allow them to express themselves freely in their art, and to relax and enjoy the process.
If you're ready to master watercolor painting and practice a little self-care at the same time...
Join me at the Virtual Watercolor Creative Retreat!
This retreat is for you if…
- You want a better understanding of certain watercolor techniques so you can create your own artistic style (instead of relying on tutorials and YouTube when painting)
- You want more of a challenge when painting so you can move from a beginner/intermediate artist to a more advanced level.
- You want to learn how to enjoy the painting process so you can relax and be at peace when you’re creating art
- You’re ready to feel motivated and inspired so that you’ll actually make time to take out your supplies and paint
“This retreat is definitely one of my highlights of 2021.”
How do I get access to the painting tutorials?
Can I get a refund if I’m not happy with my purchase?
How can I get feedback on my artwork?
I consider myself a beginner artist. Will I be able to follow along with the tutorials?
No matter which option you choose - to join the retreat or to continue learning on your own - there is something I want you to remember.
I want you to be successful and find something that brings you joy, and if this creative retreat isn’t your type of thing, that’s OK.
Because what I care about most is you finding something that makes you happy, gives you a purpose in life, and helps you create beauty in the world.
But to have all that, you have to make yourself (and your watercolor hobby) a priority. If you don’t show up for yourself, who will?
As you grow and transition as an artist, you’re going to face new challenges. You’ll compare yourself to others and believe things that aren’t true...it happens to all of us (myself included).
That’s what makes this retreat so special...it’s so much more than tutorials and lessons. It’s where you’ll find support and guidance from other people who share your same passion for watercolor.
They’ll help you see the good qualities of your paintings that you might not see yourself. If you get stuck on a technique, they’ll help you through it. When you feel like giving up, they’ll push you to keep going.
This retreat will make you a more confident, skilled artist.
I can’t wait to see you there!
