About This Class

This class is made for anyone who wants to learn how to paint a forest watercolor illustration. Painting a tree is fun but painting many trees is even better. This class will walk you through my process in how to create a beautiful piece for the upcoming fall and winter seasons. You will also learn the concept of color (monochromatic) and layering within the world of watercoloring.

Get your brush ready, grab your inspiration and let's begin our journey into the woods...
