I will also show you how to use different styles and mediums to illustrate magical gemstones, from Watercolor to Ink & Watercolor and even Gouache. You will pickup tons of techniques, tips, and tricks along the way! There will also be a lesson how to paint a rainbow, clear, and black crystal.

Yasmina is one of my favorite teachers. She has a great voice and always explains things very well. I love her art style and her positive attitude!

What a lovely class taught by such a sweet young lady. This was fun, insightful, and very inspirational. I don't know anything about highlighting, shading, or light, and this course taught me useful things that I will consider when making my own gem/crystal art. I also very much appreciated the thought that, copying is part of learning. I always feel like a fraud for wanting to mimic another artists' style in order to learn it and make it my own, but it's true: this is just part of learning. We mimic in order to learn the steps. Anyway, this was a fun, well-thought out and well-taught class. :) I look forward to learning more from Yasmina in the very near future!
Your classes are always interesting and fun.
