Ever heard or thought watercolor is so hard because you can't make a mistake? Not true. Mistakes are had. How you deal with those mistakes makes all the difference. 

In this second installment of the Confident Watercolors Series, we embrace the inevitable: mistakes! Learning to handle mistakes in watercolor is key to feeling comfortable with them. This "Oops." class will give you a step-by-step process to facing, dealing with, and correcting your own oops moments. Implementing these four steps will speed up your confidence when facing your next piece!

What You'll Learn:

  • The 4 steps to dealing with most mistakes in watercolor--complete with examples and demos
  • You'll watch Amarilys exercise these steps in a case study piece--walking through her thought process while understanding how these steps work together.
  • Gain a more accurate awareness for how watercolor paints work

Get comfortable with the process and enjoy your painting sessions more deeply!
