About This Class

Hi there! I'm Kate Amedeo and in this class, I will show you how to draw the stunning Blue Morpho butterfly with watercolor pencils and colored pencils.

Paint along with me or watch the class to learn some new techniques. I will show you how to blend colors wet and dry, how to make seamless transitions and create the stunning texture of a butterfly's wings.

All the class materials are listed in your project section together with the reference image.

After you finish your project you can frame it or give it to someone special as a handmade card. 

If you are not very familiar with watercolor pencils or would like to know more about the art supplies I am using I suggest you take my foundations class first.

Most importantly, have fun! :)
