About This Class

Welcome to How to Paint: Houseplants edition!

This is the first of the houseplants series: the Fiddleleaf Fig Plant!

Check out the other plants in this series:

  1. Fiddleleaf Fig Plant
  2. Boston Fern
  3. Pothos Plant 
  4. Monstera


This easy to grow houseplant will make a great impression in your home. Its large leaves are attractive, and it doesn't take up too much room. 

Using your observation, sketching, color mixing, and basic watercolor skills, you'll be able to paint this plant with your eyes closed!

Try painting this and then digitizing it (in my other Skillshare class!) to print it on cards, mugs, decals, and more.

Don't forget to make a project for this class so I can see all your wonderful works. If you're on Instagram, please tag me (@ThingsUnseenDesigns), and use #WatercolorWithTUD! I love to feature my students and their work!

See you in class!
