About This Class

4944104b

In this class, we'll take a deep dive into painting watercolor greenery. Also, known as "filler foliage" these leaves and greens can add a wonderful element to your watercolor projects. I've designed the lessons in simple step-by-step tutorials - perfect for beginners!  

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

You don't need lots of supplies for this class, as the focus is really on technique. The drills and exercises will help you master your brush strokes and line work, as well as think through page layouts and improve your composition skills.

After this class, you'll have the confidence to take on larger floral painting projects, and add in your gorgeous filler foliage as well!
