About This Class


You all probably know those characteristic loose watercolorflowers - they are all over Instagram and Skillshare! But when you take those flowers and put them all together, you’ll want some greens to complement and create a bit of calm in the composition.

This class takes you through leafs, grasses and twigs and show you how to focus on just shape and color for the loose style.

Finally we paint a wreath with only greens (and some other bold colors) Hopefully this can be an inspiration to explore even more leaves, grasses and foliage to make your floral paintings even more awesome.

This class is for everybody interested in painting with watercolors.

she is a lovely teacher!! she explains very softly and patiently, and makes it very easy to understand. being a teacher myself, I know how tricky it is to take the student beyond technique, and just paint what you love about the subject :)
I love how you got inspiration from real leaves and you went into the forest. The making of leaves and grass is done so nicely. I was able to understand the steps easily. I would recommend this class to anyone who loves Watercolor painting.

Can't get enough of your loose style! I love your explanation on leaves and foliage, it helps a lot as I always feel intimidated by all the greens!

Teaching Whimsical watercolors

My name is Camilla and I’m a danish watercolourist. Mostly I paint whimiscal flowers which I share on Instagram as @camilla_damsbo_art. Here on Skillshare I love to share my knowledge in fun and easy classes on watercolor and ink and I can't wait to see you in class.

I would deffinitly say that watercolour is the most magical kind of paint, and all you can do is just know a little technique, loosen up your brush and trust the process.
