In this class I will show you a step by step process how to make beautiful watercolor illustrations of coffee. 

This class will consist of two parts. 

In the first part of the class I will discuss all the tools of trade, supples and things to consider before and while drawing.

In the second part we will start with some easy practice and then I will take your through my drawing process with 5 examples, explaining my actions along the way. 

As a bonus, I will also share how I edit the pictures of my watercolors on the phone so that they are bright and pretty and ready to be posted to IG. No photoshop required =)
