About This Class

167b5f65

In this class I will walk you through the process of creating your own wreath with watercolors.  I will show you my process of how I come up with an idea for a wreath and I will demonstrate how to paint 5 different wreaths. Check the project section of this class to see the 5 wreaths I will be painting.  

I have used wreaths in the illustrations for galleries and my personal prints that I sell on Etsy. You can find some examples of my illustrations of baby animals on my website and the prints that are exclusively sold in ArtStar NY art gallery and on Etsy.

Gulnara Mirzakarimova

Artist from Venice, CA

Hi! My name is Gulnara and I am a self-taught artist based in Venice, California. I emigrated to the United States from Uzbekistan with my family when I was nineteen and I lived for a long time in Washington, D.C. before moving to California. I have been drawing since before I could write and art has always played a huge part in my life. I always experiment with techniques and different mediums. My favorite mediums are watercolors, oil paints, ink and color pencils. I love to create illustrations that inspire and bring smiles.

I share the pictures of my paintings and behind the scenes photos on my instagram account: @hedgehogandunicorn and  you can buy the prints of my artwork in my Etsy Shop .

I am also on Twitter: @HedgehogAndU and on Tumblr: https://hedgehogandunicorn.tumblr.com/

I hope my work makes you smile :)
