This class is for anyone that wants to learn the basics of watercoloring in order to start on their own fashion or illustration projects, but even the most experienced painters might pick up a new technique or two. So grab your brushes and palettes and sign up now!
In this class you will learn:
As a way to emphasize the lessons and show off our new skills, we will all be painting a subject matter that has amazing color, texture, and structure (and also happens to be one of my favorite fashion items): SHOES!
It takes practice and experimentation to get good handle on how watercolors work and react to different processes. While we won't be going over how to draw shoes (shoe drawing downloads will be available for you to practice on), you will know key takeaways like when to use more or less water, how to use different brushes, and how to make a basic color chart with the paint you have.
My name is Katie Rodgers and I started Paperfashion, a fashion illustration blog, nearly four years ago. I’ve been illustrating for as long as I can remember, and I’m excited to finally share my skills with you! I’ve managed to take my hobby and turn it into a career that I’m beyond passionate about. I've had the honor of working with clients such as Lucky Magazine, Kate Spade, Calypso St. Barth, Coach, Nabisco and Alicia Keys. You can find out more about me and my work on www.paperfashion.net, or here: www.twitter.com/paperfashion www.instagram.com/paperfashion and www.facebook.com/paperfashion
