Watercolour Technique for Fashion Illustration - Masterclass


Watercolour Technique for Fashion Illustration - Masterclass: 

Are you sick of making mud pies with your watercolour paints? Understanding this beautiful media is key to achieving the effects you want. The variety of paints, brushes, and paper can be overwhelming, but all will be expained, simplified, and prioritised!

The masterclass will start with a range of fundamental techniques and progress through some advanced effects, specifically as used in Fashion Illustration.  We will then apply the key techniques to some fashion figures, so you will also be shown how to sketch these up simply.

It will be creative, it will be fun, you will love it!

The Patsyfox Drawing Salon

Vendor since 2014

I’m a Melbourne-based designer and illustrator and have been working in the fashion industry since graduating from university in the late 80’s.

After years of travelling the world and designing for some of Australia’s favourite fashion brands, I saw the light and now make illustration – my first love – my number one.

Besides keeping up with Patsyfox.com, I mix freelance work with teaching fashion illustration and design at RMIT and in my own boutique classes at The Patsyfox Drawing Salon.  I have a line of Bridal Sketches, illustrating brides in their beautiful dresses by commission, and am currently illustrating for Elle magazine.

I am a gun for hire, whose work can be found in magazines, print advertisements, fashion websites, brochures, invitations, design storyboard presentations, books, trend forecasting, greeting cards, and stationery.


I design-draw-write-photograph, therefore I am.
