About This Class


One of the things that I love about watercolor is being able to achieve that transparency. I love how we can paint strokes on top of each other and still be able to see the layers underneath. Today, we are going to learn how to paint watercolor anemones using the layering technique. 

To start the class, we will talk about the materials that you need and one of them is the Surikomi brush. Because it is difficult to find this brush, we are going to use an alternative brush that we can find in our homes which is a toothbrush! Interesting, right? 

Here are the topics that we will learn: 

  • How to paint marks using a toothbrush
  • How to achieve transparency
  • Do's and Don'ts of layering
  • How to paint layered leaves
  • Painting simple flower exercises using layering
  • Painting a half wreath

This class is suitable for beginners or for anybody who wants to try a different style for painting watercolor florals. 

At the end of the class, using all the skills that you learned, you will be able to accomplish painting a half wreath with an Anemone and layered leaves.

This will be a fun and easy class! :) Let's grab our brush and start painting!

Watercolor Artist



Hi everyone! 

My name is Joly and I am a watercolorist based in the Philippines. I discovered painting with watercolor back in 2013. I started out as newbie and learned to paint better through making mistakes and learning from other amazing artists. I just love how we can express ourselves through painting, creating wonderful watercolor florals using our artistic interpretation. It makes each painting really unique! 

My instagram account (@jolypoa)  serves as my art journal where I post my progress in the form of timelapse videos, real-time videos and photos of my paintings. My goal was also to be able to share what I have learned in watercolor. I hope to be able to do the same here on Skillshare! :)

1. Introduction: you know you can use a household item such as a toothbrush age, whether color for else well, joining today as he learned how the paint, watercolor and then my knees, using the layering the week and, of course, with the help of 18th Fresh Hi, welcome to a sculpture class We name is strongly and any watercolor artist beef in the Philippines them, also known as Johnny Pull on Instagram. And that's where I pulled over paintings and process reviews, time lapse videos and anything about water color. Today we're going to learn how to paint watercolor layered florals and things over excited the charity this class, because this is the will for beginners, or for anybody who wants to try a different way of painting watercolor florals in this last year, going to talk about the materials that you need, and one of them is the Saudi Comey brush. But instead off a certain Comey brush, we're going to use a toothbrush, which is a common either in our homes, and I would think you have to add texture to our florals. You see just a toothbrush. When is the face that I love about painting with other color is being able to achieve that transparency, but and again paint several strokes on top of each other and still be able to see the layer underneath. And that's what you're going to learn to date. We will also learn about the booze and phones off layering puzzles and leaves, and has an exercise. You will do a simple Florida's like this federal serve as a mini project before your final project. After learning how to paint the layer titles for the Yemeni flower, I'm going to teach you how to add that three D effect through the center of the flower. Using wash at the end of the class will be able to paint 1/2 breed like this because I write the code in the center or a beer initials and then put this in the frame and the state in your home. I'm pretty sure that you're very excited to start painting, so let's for ever fresh and move onto the next lesson 2. Materials: Theo. Let's talk about materials that way for the brush. I am using the silver brush Black velvet. This is a round brush inside six, but you can also use a size eight. This brush is a mix off doctrinal, scrotal hair and synthetic care. If you prefer a synthetic brush, then I will recommend you the Princeton Neptune brush. Even though it is synthetic, it's the works, like a natural Skrill hairbrush. The next fresh is optional. This is the Princeton heritage. Brush in size to It's a round brush that we can use for details, but you can also use your size six brush to create the details so that you don't need to use two brushes anymore. For Pete's amusing the Shien Han PwC, it's a Korean artist greed, watercolor paint, and it comes in tubes so you can just pour it into half pants like this. Can they need a white wash? I'm using the whole pain artist squash. This is in permanent white, but if you don't have wash, you can also use poster paint for your pencil. I'm just using an ordinary mechanical pencil in this glass. I'm going to use a ceramic palette as my mixing palette. If you cannot find special mixing palettes like this, then you can also opt to use ceramic plates. Or you can use plastic pallets. And then we need to prepare a jar off clean water. He also need tissue paper to dab the excess water in their brush as an alternative to the Surrey calm you crash. We are going to use a toothbrush, e. I find that they make similar brushstrokes by tapping them onto paper. Since the story coming brush is a little difficult to fi and not accessible. So a lot of people that fresh is a really good alternative. Why the paper? I'm easy, Fabbiano. Artistic. Oh, this is 100% cotton paper and it's cold pressed. I also chose extra white because the colors pop up more on this type of paper like any other class s. My tip is to buy a large sheet of father color paper and just cut it into smaller pieces for practice. If you don't have this brand, I suggest to choose a watercolor paper that IHS 300 g s m. So that's it. Three. You're ready for the exercises 3. Surikomi vs Toothbrush: And this wasn't your going to discuss how to use the surgery. Call me brush and a tooth brush and our paintings. So they start with the story coming brush, and I'm just going to dip the bristles in the water and you're just going to dump in it. So I have some paint squeezed out on the ceramic palette, and now we're going to grab some paint. You see our Sorry Comey brush, and I'm going to show you what will happen if there is too much water in our brush as you can see, having too much water and their brush will produce a puddle Hotels. So let me just zoom it in for you so that you can see it better. Now. We need to avoid these puddles, and in order to do that, we just need to grab our tissue paper and let's just stabbed the excess paint in our brush and let's test it out. Okay, so that's better. Now we can see the texture from the brush, so let's just dab dab, dab it on the paper. And now I'm just grabbing some more pain and then making sure that there's not a lot off water so that I can get a deeper shade of green. So I am still you saying the shade sap green. And as you can see, the color changes depending on how much water I added to the pain. And I'm adding a little bit off indigo because it makes this look more interesting. And you're doing this exercise because this will be the center off our and the money later , let's move on to you see a toothbrush. And now I'm just going to moisten the bristles off the toothbrush and off course. You have to make sure that we don't have too much water in our brush and right, I'm going to show you what will happen if there's too much water in our brush. So as you can see now, there are puddles every time I dab it onto paper in order to remove the excess paint in my brush, I just need to dab it in my tissue paper. Okay, so now let's grab more paint. And as he can see, I didn't really add that much water, and they paint anymore because the bristles are already with when you're about to dad, the bristles just use about 1/3 off the bristles just along this portion off the brush, so that you can create those nice marks. So now let's just repeated by Diaby in just the tip off the brush. Now let's try to add some in the go. And as you can see, I also did not really add a lot off water in my pain because I know that the bristles are, quite ah, wet already. So if you compare the markings from the story coming brush and the toothbrush, they are not exactly the same, but they do look similar. That's why I think that it's a good alternative to use a toothbrush instead. Since it's difficult to find a story, call me brush. Well, I hope that you enjoy doing this activity with me. And now let's move on to the next topic. 4. How to Achieve Transparency: we can achieve transparency by adding more water to our pain. So I have here my sheen and PWC, and this is the color torque eyes with a wet brush, we urge is going to grab some pain and I am going to mix it on the ceramic positive and let's just watch this on the paper. As you can see, it's quite opaque. That's because we have more paint and less water in our mixture. So now I'm going to introduce more water to our pain. So let's try to swatch it again so you can see that it's now a bit lighter because we added more water. Let's try to add more water to make it more transparent. Okay, I think we got the right mixture off paint and water. So this is what we will use for the petals off our and the money later. So let's just zoom it in so that you can see it clearly in the section. You're going to learn how to layer, and I'm going to show you to do's and dont's off layering right now. I want you to paint three circles. I am using the same shade that we use earlier, and we just wanted to be quite transparent. So we're now on to our A second circle for the third circle. I am going to add a little bit of the lead and sap green to my turquoise so that I can get that bluish green color. It looks almost like meant. And if it gets a wonderful shade and you're Eustis us well for the petals off our animal later, let's strike in there now and for experiment number one, the base off our first vehicle. It's not yet guy, and I am going to paint on top off it, and you'll see that because the basis still with the seconds were cultures blends in with the first circle that we painted, and you cannot barely see the stroke underneath because they kind of just merge with each other because they are both wet. And this is something that we have to avoid. Experiment number two. This circle right here is completely dry, and I'm going to paint on top off it, and as you can see, the layer underneath is still very clear. You can see it well, and that is because the first layer underneath is completely dry. It doesn't move or merge with the layer on top. This is three idea leering that we want to achieve. Experiment then received. This or claret ear is dry, and I'm going to add a second layer on top, and this time I'm going to use a more pigmented paint. But you see a more opaque mixture. We can't really see the layer underneath anymore. This is why it's important to get the right mixture off pain and water so that we can achieve that nice transparency. 5. Layered Leaves Exercise: layered leaves exercise, So let's start with indigo and sap green. I loaded my brush with indigo and a little bit of sap green, and now we're painting these. Using two strokes. I prefer painting the darker leaves on the first layer and then just topping it off with some transparent leaves on the second layer, which we will do later. So here I'm going to paint the second leave and you're going to do two strokes, one at the bottom and another one on the top. Let's move on to the third leave, so we are also painting it in two strokes. And just remember that you can always go back and fix the shape off the leaf. We're now down to the last D for the first layer. It's interesting how we can ask you so many colors using sap, green and indigo. So as you can see, I have used different shades for the leaves, and it makes it look more interesting and more pleasing to our ice. So I'm just going to let this dry, and after a while we can check before we add the second layer with the looted sap green. I am going to paint leaves in the gaps because the first layer is already dry. When you paint the second layer, you will notice that you still see the hard edges off the first layer underneath, and it did not merge with the second layer. It doesn't look blur that all, and that's what we want to achieve for this exercise. Since I want to show you guys how to layer leaves, I am going to paint in all the gaps here, but you can definitely just choose which gaps you want to paint on, adding. Secondly, relieves will make this look fuller. This exercise is helpful when we paid our file Project Leader, which is 1/2 Reese. 6. Painting an Anemone Part 1: So let's start painting the animal. Me. So I have here my toothbrush and I have just moisten it with water, and that's just grab some sap green. We want a more pigmented mixture, so now let's try to tap it on the paper. This will be the center off our anonymity, and I am just eating some texture by tapping the toothbrush on the paper. If you feel like the toothbrush is running out of pain, can always refer and just grab more pain, and you can also tap it on the same spot. Then let's grab a little bit of indigo just to get that deep color. So we want the center to be quite Web, because we're going to pull that color when you pay the petals later. Now let's get our round brush and let's dip it in the sap green paint, so we're going to put some thoughts right there. Our goal is to create a round shape center, and it's difficult to create that just with a toothbrush. So with help off a round brush, you're just going to fill in those gaps on the side. We're done with the center that's ever see to painting the petals. So I have a very diluted for Christ color here, and I'm also still you see my around brush. Make sure to grab a lot off paint in your brush using a pencil. I am just going to put some marks around the center so that I know where the petals will go . So let's create a loop and I just want toe pull that sap green, as you can see right there, it's pleading out towards the petal, so let's just grab some more paint so that we can fix the battle. We can add more strokes and make it a little bit baker. So let's add another bevel on the side. And I just followed the marks that I made a while ago using pencil so you can always go back to the first battle of be painted. As long as it is still wet, it will be easy to fix the shape off the petal. Let's pull some off the sap green again, and that it makes with the turquoise spittle fast. You can see I am going back and forth with the pedals and just trying to fix the shape. This part right here seems to have dried up, which means that the sap green in the centre won't bleed out into the petal when we painted . In order to fix that, I am just going to grab my brush and get some sap green. And then we're going to paint some dots to rehydrate that area. So now that the center is okay, we are going to add another petal over there. You can see that the sap green is pleading into the pedal that we just painted. However, it seems like the center has played out too much into the petal. So to fix this, just grab a clean and semi dry brush and just let it absorb all the excess paint. So we're now down to the last, better for the first layer off our and the money. And right here we have five petals. So just feel free to go back to the previous battles that painted. If you want to fix the shape as loss, it is still wet. The center feels lacking in color. So right now I'm just grabbing some in Diggle, and I am just going to put some thoughts in the center. Do you want the center to be a little bit intense and color while the petals are still wet . I am just going to grab the toothbrush and let's get some diluted sap green pain and you're going to add some freckles on the petal, so I do that by tapping the brush on the petals so we're creating some feathered thoughts. My tip right here is to make sure that the toothbrush isn't too wet because you don't want those Frankel's to blend in with the pedal. We still want to see those impressions. Those marks that we made using the toothbrush. Okay, so we're done. Let's just wait for this to dry. Let me ages touch this to make sure that it's really dry, because this part is crucial, and I want you to make sure that the first layer is dry before we add the second layer with a very diluted third Coy's paint. We're going to pain in between these two paddles. As you can see, we have achieved of transparency, and you can still see the petals underneath. So let's just continue painting in the gaps. I tried to load my brush with a lot of pain. This makes it easier to fix the petals that I'm going to paint, so we can also change the colors off the pedal so we can add some sap green to the third course to make a bluish green paint. This ever money is starting to look fuller because we're adding the second layer off petals , and I'm quite excited for you guys to finish painting. You can always there in the papers that it's easier for you to paint in a certain angle, everything looking great. And we're now down to the last Peto. Let's wait. Wear this layer to dry, and then we can proceed to the part two off painting and then the money flower. 7. Painting an Anemone Part 2: welcome to part two off Bt on them. Any flower. Okay, so now there's already dry And I just got the toothbrush again and I have moisten it with Porter and we were going to grab some sap green. If there's too much water in the toothbrush, just stab it in that issue. So we want a more pigmented sap green fad. We will tap in the center like this. It's add some markings right here. Just tap the bristles onto paper. Now I want to intensify the sender's. So I'm going to concentrate that tapping in the centre off the Yemeni. Okay, at this point, we're going to let this dry, and afterwards I'm going to show you how to add some good wash details. So I have here my fresh sea squeeze, hoping white wash. So I am just going to introduce a little bit of water in the wash just to break it down and get the right consistency. At this point, you can actually use a round brush and size do Super eight. The details in the centre off the lemony right here I am just going to add a ring off Thoughts has tried to mix it up a bit, so I'm going to paint some That's a little bigger, somewhere smaller, and that will make this'll look more interesting. This white wash pops up more if the background is quite dark, like what he did in the center of this anybody. Now you're done with the ring off thoughts, so I'm going to add more and thoughts in the outer portion right there. That's just Cather. Those thoughts, and I'm going to just put it randomly. If you're having a hard time, you see a size six round brush to create those tiny dots. Then you can definitely switch through a smaller brush. You can use a size two or size zero road brush. After adding those thoughts, I'm going to rinse my brush and I'm going to let this dry. Now let's just grab some more sap green, and I'm going to paint more thoughts because I want to intensify everything in the center. And then you can add a little bit of indigo in some areas with those sap green dots still went. I'm going to grab some white go wash, and you're going to paint more white thoughts and this you can see. I am smudging some off the dots and letting it plan with the sap green. And that would be eight, a beautiful three d effect. So just trying to mix it up, some off the white wash thoughts, we will leave it as this, but some off them we're going to smudge it with the sap green. For me, this is such a fun way to paint the center of the anonymity flower. I just love going back and forth with the wash and the sap green and sometimes the end ago . So the more details that they add, the more three d the center looks with a round brush. I'm going to grab a pigmented sap green color, and we're going to be a thin strokes right there. So I did not add a lot off water in my paint because I want that intense sap green color can also try to add. It is a bit off indigo if you want. Okay, so if everything's coming into place and I'm just going to add a few more thoughts just to give it more detail, I just love how we can slowly build up the center of the Yemeni, and it depends on you. If you wanted to be more detailed, get off course. Add more white wash and that's it. Congratulations on painting your first on them only flour using the layering technique. 8. Class Project: that's PP have free for a class project. So on that, start with the paper I am using the Fabbiano artist ical 100% watercolor paper. This is cold press paper and that I have here my paints from Sheen ham pwc 10. Of course I have my toothbrush, so you're going to start by painting the money right here in the center and then add some leaves on the left and right side off the flower. So let's start by wedding. The bristles off the toothbrush and we are just going to moisten it a little bit. And then let's grab some pain I am using here the color sap green. So we want our mixture to be on the more intense side, which means there should be more pain and less water, and then you can start by tapping it on the paper and just eight tip. You can use an old toothbrush for this painting. You don't need to get a new one for painting the center off the Alemany, so this looks good. I'm going to grab my round brush. This is E size six, and this gets some sap green. That's paint some dots to create a arounder center for our animal. Me, I'm just going to fill in the gaps. It's the time to put some markings so that we know where the petals will go. Okay, so I have my very diluted turquoise color and you're going to start painting our petals. So I am trying to pull the sap green in the centre towards the petal. Let's eat that Nice bleeding. And because they're both where they will blend well together. So when you're beating for those who can think off our painting the sheep off a balloon As I'm painting the petal, you can see that I'm also moving the color You can see some of the sap green color on the edges off some pedals and I just love how it looks. I love the mixture off turquoise and sap green. I love the bluish green color because it looks so fresh in the ice. We are now on to the last battle for the based off our and lemony flower. So right now I am just fixing in the shape off the petals. Well, this basis. So what? We're going to add some freckles and you're going to do that by cabbie our toothbrush and that's just grab some pain. Let me just show you what it looks like. Any tap this on dry paper. And then now let's see what it looks like. Any tap it on wet paper so the petals are still wet. And as you can see, the colors are dispersing. But it still has that shape, and I'm going to name them as freckles or feather dots. It's just wait for this to dry. So now it's already dry and have prepared my third quays mixture. This is diluted so that we can get the nice transparency, and that's start debate our second layer of metals. So we really have to be patient. When you're about to paint the step, let's make sure that the first layer is dry. Before we do this, you can see the edges off the petals underneath, which means that we did this correctly, so that's add one more petal over there. Okay, so you're almost done. Just one more to go. Don't forget that you can always change the color for the Yemenis. It is off course, up to your preference for this project. I just decided to use third choice and sap green because it looks very cool and very pleasant in their eyes. OK, so let's just week for this to dry. Let's grab our toothbrush and intensify the center off the animal me by grabbing some sap green. You can also add a bit off indigo to make the color deeper. It's not time to add the ring off small thoughts over there. What's nice about this method is that we can slowly build the center off the money. We can continue to tap our brush and add more texture and thoughts to the center off the animal. Me Adri depends on how you think you want this to be. Okay, so now let's week for this to dry again. We can touch the paper to make sure that it's already dry, and now I am going to grab some white wash. Let's add a bit off water to the wash so that you can get the right consistency, and then we can start painting the ring off white thoughts and the center right there. It's painted randomly, and of course, you can change the size. Some thoughts are smaller. Some are bigger after wish we can now proceed to painting the thoughts on the outer ring. Adding white Koosh really adds that extra texture to our and them any flower. This is a great way to intensify the look off on an M any flower. And because he added thes small details, the painting doesn't look flat with their own brush. I'm grabbing some sap green and adding some thoughts. I'm also smudging some off the wash. You can go back and forth after painting the dots using the sap green. You can go back to using wash and just start adding more white thoughts and try this much it again smudging just gives this three d effect to the flower. No, this is looking really, really good. Let's go back to our sap green and they want a more intense color. So that's paint something lines over there and you're done with the flower. Let's now move on to painting the leaves. Okay, so right now I have here my paints have sap green and and ego, and you're going to start painting some leaves. I'm going to attach them to the main power try to makes the sap green away at the end ago so that you can create a new color. And whenever I paint the use, I love changing the shades of green because it just looks were interesting. So you're going to be some leaves later in those caps. Let's speed the leaves as if it's coming from the back off the flour, and I am not going to Pete on top off the petals. Okay, so let's not try to paint the left side off the half wreath. I impeding this one leaf at a time. You can try to change the angle of the leaves and also change the colors. I am painting the leaves diagonally from each other like this, so you're done at the left side, and that's just wait for this to dry. In the meantime, let's paint the right side off this half Reese to make it easier for you to paint the shape off the reef. You can use a pencil and grow a line like this. This will serve as a guide for you as to where you will paint the leaves. Just make sure that you draw lightly. You see a pencil because once you paint over the line you won't be able to erase the pencil mark anymore, so we're almost done with the first layer. This is the last leaf for the first layer, and after that, let's just wait for all the leaves and dry up. Now that everything's dry, you can start painting the second layer petals. I'm going to start by me seeing a little bit off sap green with indigo. And let's just pain in the gaps. By overlapping those leaves, we can make this half wreath. Look for there. Okay, so now you're ready to add leaves in this area. I just hate those leaves in the White Caps, so I'm going to stop right there. This will be the last leaf for this side off the half Reese. So I'm now going to move to the right side off this half. Reese, you can change the direction of the leaves. It doesn't really have to follow a certain pattern. Another tip is to also vary. The size is off the leaves so that it looks more organic. It's not time to add some buds, and then you seeing the turquoise color again. I am just going to paint some oval shapes all over the half. Reese. You can also change the color right here. If you want, add some purple pods that will look good as well. After adding those butts, we're going to add some stems that will connect it to the reef. I usually add the stamps while the bus are still with, because it looks good when the base off the but makes us with the green color off the stem . So I'm going to add one more layer off leaf over here. Let's just try to add some more finishing touches for this half wreath. One of my tips for you is to add some stamps sticking out, and I usually do this by grabbing a deeper shade of green. And I will just add some thin strokes that looked like stems. This very simple step gives Yuri more death, and it also gives that very natural and organic look to it. You can add more buds in police is that looks like it has a big gap, and we are done. I can't believe that we were able to finish this pretty half reef in just a few minutes, and I'm very excited to see what you painted 9. Bonus Class Project: and in this video I'm going to show a bonus. Last project. I'm going to show you a demo off this beautiful painting. So aside from the half, rethink and also paint this project. So the first step is to pay the anima knee flower in the center. And besides it, we're going to paint too small and them any flowers, the service he guide. I'm going to draw small circles and that will be the center off the animal me flowers on the sides for this project. I'm going to use the surgical me brush, but you can definitely use a toothbrush for the center, off the small and embodies. I just makes indigo with violet to get that deeper color. So you think the story Comey brush. I am just going toe dab it to create a nice texture like this. Now let's draw some marks so that we know where the petals will go. So for the color of the petals, I just use Violet, and they added a little bit of indigo to create that more muted and more vintage. Look, I'm painting five petals for the base off this animal. Me flower. Now let's start with the small and the money flower on the left. I'm also using way Saudi Comey brush to pay the center, and now we can start painting the petals. I'm also pulling the color from the center towards the petal to create that nice please. So for the small and Yemenis were not going to put some freckles anymore after being thing the first layer off the Yemenis. You're just going to let this dry. And when the first layer is trying, we can start adding the second layer. Okay, so now we're doing this correctly because we can see the petals underneath the second layer . You can also change the color for the second layer petals. You can add a little bit of blue or a little bit of pink. Just have fun with eating these layered florals. Okay, so that's just wait for this to dry again. Let's grab our city, call me brush and let's intensify the center by tapping the brush on the paper, and I'm just adding a few more details. I'm using just the sides off the sooty Comey brush because I just want a few thoughts over there. Now let's get our white Wash and let's paint a ring off white dots. So the procedure is pretty much the same as the bigger and anybody that we painted. Okay, so now I'm going to grab some indigo, and I'm just going to smudge some off the white wash. Let's try to zoom in, and then we can now Pete the thin lines. So again you're just let this dry, so you were done with our main flowers. Now let's proceed to painting the leaves. So again I have my sap green and indigo, and I'm going to use those two colors to paint the leaves. I am going to start by painting leaves in those white gaps. You can try to vary the size off the leaves and also the colors off the leaves again. The you're just going to paint the leaves as if it's coming from behind the flowers. So my plan is to add more leaves all over the flowers, and then they will add more leaves in the center. I'm leaving some white spaces in between the leaves so that I can try the layer it later, and it will look further. And when the first layer is dry, we can start adding the second layer. So now that start to layer our leaves. Okay, let me wear that. I used here is quite small, so try to find a bigger paper so that the painting isn't ask crowded right now they're still white caps, and I'm just going to fit it in with more leaves. Let's wait for this to dry, and then he gets part adding some veins. So to give it more deaths, I'm going to add some veins on the leaves. My tip is to choose the leaves that you will put vanes on. Trying not to put fades on all the leaves because it looked too crowded. So try to utter need the leaves with seeds and the leaves that are blank. And also don't use a dark green color for the veins because it might look too harsh on the painting. You can probably just choose around two shades darker than the color of the leaf that you are going to paint the veins on. You're always done. Congratulations for making another class project. I hope that you enjoy this Justus Much s painting the half. Reese. I hope that you can push this in our project gallery. 10. Final Thoughts: on reaching the end of the class, and I hope that you were able to learn something new today as we were different guys. My number one tip is the practice. I know you've heard this so many types in my previous glasses, but it really does help to practice on birth twisted, impatient, especially when it comes to earlier florals really have to read for the first layer to dry before you can add another layer to achieve the nice transparency and to make the process quicker, you can use a hair dryer or a heat gun so that you won't have to wait that long for the first layer to dry. You can also look for a reference photo for painting and never knees, and you definitely can change the colors that we used. Um, endemic comes to layer in Cornell's. You can apply the signee to different flowers. Don't be afraid to experiment. And also don't forget to, of course, inject your own style in your painting. I'm excited to see your class projects, and don't forget. Upload your projects in the gallery section off our class so that I can see your paintings . And if you're going to upload it on Instagram. Don't forget to use this hashtag so that I can do your work. And if you're not, get following until her do follow me now. So that would be notified every time I have node a new class. So that's it.
