Cacti are such endearing little things, it's no wonder they're a popular subject to paint and to have in our homes!

In this class, you will learn to paint some cute little cacti in three different color themes:

  • Classic Cacti
  • Psychedelic
  • Galactic

This class is suitable for beginners with some knowledge on watercolors looking to practice their skills, and even intermediates looking to up their cacti game!

I will walk you through my painting process, as well as the materials and techniques I use for these paintings. 

What you can expect from this class:

  • Learn how to draw and stylize your cacti
  • Basic watercolor techniques
  • Learn how to choose colors for each theme
  • Learn to add details to bring your paintings to life
  • Two demos using liquid watercolors and pan and tube watercolors—watch several paintings come to life from start to finish!

At the end of the class, you will be confident in creating your very own themed cacti which you can also incorporate into other creative works.

Have fun learning and happy painting!
