About This Class

2baee0ac

Get ready for the perfect class this summer as explore five different trees and how to paint them using watercolors!

This class is really special to me because not only do I really love and appreciate nature, but 5% of what I earn through the end of this summer 2018 will be donated to my local Forest Preserve Districts so that they can continue to preserve trees, animals, and wildlife in general for many generations to come.

Every minute you will watch will count towards this, so I appreciate your help!

In this class, we'll learn how to paint five different tree shapes and a tree associated with that particular shape: columnar (poplar), fountain (palm tree), weeping (weeping willow), pyramidal (himalayan cedar tree), and round (red maple).

If you're curious about the supplies I use, check out the list on my website

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 have always struggled with trees and had no idea how to even start. This is a brilliant class and has helped me understand layering and general watercolour techniques far better. I loved it! Really enjoyable class to follow as well
Beautiful class with tons of great tips and tricks for working with watercolor. Audrey is an excellent teacher.
