About This Class

83fcd14b

In this class, I'll take you through the floral illustration process from start to finish.  I've created the lessons in two separate sections so you can focus on the foundational strokes in section one, and then dive into the illustration portion in section two.  

Overview of the lessons: 

• Lessons 1-4 covers the basic strokes and shapes of leaves, stems and flower petals.  We will work on a final project using these skills and create a Floral Wreath. 

• Lesson 5-8 covers different techniques and materials you can use in your floral illustrations. Listed below is a suggested supplies list to get you started. We will then work on a second final project building on these lessons and create a Floral Frame.

• Fun Bonus: I've also included a printable swipe file for your personal use. Have fun coming up with your floral designs and remember to post your work! I'd love to cheer you on!! 

Happy Painting!!

I absolutely loved your classes and can't wait to try some of the projects. I actually tried the dandelions because I was BLOWN away by your amazing work on the dandelions and it was one of the favorite pieces I have ever seen done ever btw, and I could not get 99% alcohol to lift my watercolor paint background at all. I then tried acetone and that didn't work either, so I'm at a standstill with a dry green and blue background. What now? I want to make a dandelion resist painting in the worst way. Kandi
Love your class, Neesha! Thank you!
