About This Class

These heritage carrots have such fantastic colours, they are crying out to be painted!

Paint with me step by step as I teach you how to create this wonderful rainbow of carrots. I'll show you how to mix a cohesive colour-scheme using just a couple of colours. We'll cover wet in wet techniques and basic layering to create this happy bunch of veggies.

You'll also be learning colour theory in a fun and practical way.

You can paint this bite-sized illustration in your lunch break! This is the perfect project for a housewarming gift, your own kitchen, or a quirky card - (add your own carrot pun!)
