About This Class

2da1b48b

Join me and practice some basic watercolor techniques together. We'll play with

  • color transparency
  • washes
  • wet on dry, and
  • wet on wet techniques

Watercolor is super fun and yields interesting and sometimes surprising results.

I've included a bonus lesson where I'll demonstrate how to turn some of our watercolor elements into a pretty still life floral bouquet.

Let's get started!

xo,

I love all of Anne's classes and this one is no exception! I am not a painter, but have always wanted to get the "painterly" look. So, I decided to give it a go. Anne's class gave me the confidence and skills I needed in order to create my first watercolor florals. Her lessons are detailed, yet very accessible. Thanks for teaching me a new skill, Anne! I cannot wait to paint more. :)
