About This Class

Welcome to my new class! I will first explain how to create your drawing layout and composition. First, starting with the pumpkins and then adding leaves, berries, and twigs. This class is great for any artist who enjoys the fall season! 

Next, for the actual watercolor portion, I will show you how to set up your supplies and go over the tools that will be needed to complete this project. Also, I will discuss some great tips and tricks to help you expand your watercolor skills!

What you will learn is how to properly layer your colors and create depth and dimension throughout your watercolor project. This class is a fun project for all artists and would make a great addition to anyone's portfolio.

Supplies I used

  • Winsor & Newton - WC Paint
  • Palette/Tray - For mixing
  • Rag/Paper Towel
  • Watercolor Paper - Strathmore coldpress 140 lb.
  • Two cups water - opt. (one is clean, one is to clean brushes) this saves some time.
  • Brushes
