In this class, you will get familiar with the basics of drawing leaves for modern illustrations with ink and watercolor, using different techniques and five leaf shapes. The class is easily organized and shows you step-by-step the following:

  • observing leaves and creating modern sketches of them
  • using nib and ink to create more interesting drawing lines
  • “wet on wet”, “wet on dry” and "glazing" watercolor techniques
  • layering painting
  • mixing watercolor on a palette (pan and tubes)

After the course you will be able to apply these skills in many other watercolor illustrations.

Let’s flow your creativity and enjoy the class!
