This process will give you an idea on where you should start by understanding the basic forms and small details of cacti. Join me in learning the art of 'cactus painting.'

Lettering and floral enthusiast,

Thanks for such amazing class!!! I've been looking for some lesson on succulents for a long time! This theme is really popular and you show a lot of different variants. This class will be interesting both for beginners and advanced students. I'm not really good in watercolor, but anyway step-by-step painted beautiful succulents-cards.
Great job teaching all the different cacti and succulents. I learned a lot watching you watercolor. Love how you kept saying "that's okay" regardless of what the paints did on their own. :-)

Hi! My name is Riana. I'm a mixed media artist, crafter and illustrator.

I have presented mixed media in various forms for different causes that I am passionate about, such as breast cancer. I have also illustrated for religious children books in the past.

I really enjoying creating and helping others be encouraged, especially when it comes to art because I believe anyone can do art. You don't have to be artistic or have the just have to believe you can do it.
