About This Class

In this class I'm going to take you through 4 lessons with different approaches BUT using one subject...the PINEAPPLE. It's still very much on trend and this icon can be seen on everything from cushions to journals. 

First I'm going to draw a pineapple from life using pencil. This will give me an insight into how it's proportions and how its constructed. Perhaps certain themes will emerge that will inspire you when we move onto the other techniques.

1) We'll paint a basic version in watercolour using line to emphasise the shapes

2) Watercolour and pen to create a more decorative pineapple

3) A fun version of pineapple play pattern using watercolour and Posca pens 

Anyone can join in with this class as these techniques are certainly beginner level up. The main thing is  to have fun and explore.

This class is amazing. I am determined to make an awesome pineapple pattern to print on fabric and watch this class every time I work on one. I've made a few now and hopefully will be happy enough with one of them soon to have printed. :) Ohn Mar Win is a wonderful teacher I love her soft spoken and encouraging courses.
Ohn Mar Win is lovely and nurtures a fun and kind approach to art practice.
Informative and fun. Developing drawing skills and observation skills. Very helpful and inspiring.
