About This Class

Welcome to How to Paint: Houseplants edition!


This is the third of the houseplants series: the Pothos Plant! Check out the other plants in this series:

  1. Fiddleleaf Fig Plant
  2. Boston Fern
  3. Pothos Plant
  4. Monstera (coming soon!)

The Pothos Plant is so interesting to paint because of its variegated colors in its leaves. 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!

I was working right along. Great class as always. In Jamaica (where I was born) we call it "money plant" and you will find it in many homes. If it fluoresces, you will have money...old wives saying - LOL!
