About This Class

40c382bc

I'm sharing my simple process for creating unique and pretty illustrated florals using my favorite tool, Tombow Dual brush Pens. I'll walk you through how to use these brush pens as watercolors (feel free to use regular watercolors)....but first, I'll share how to create simplified floral illustrations, choose color palettes, and finish off your florals with details that pull everything together. Believe me, this is all really simple and even more satisfying. 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Florals are EVERYWHERE and it is hard to find a unique take on them. Instead of overcomplicating things and trying to reinvent the wheel, we are, quite literally, going to go back to BASICS.
