About This Class

If you love watercolors, you’ve likely noticed how popular watercolor florals have become lately. They’re bright, beautiful and perfect for stationery, branding, social media, packaging and more. Digitizing them, removing the white backgrounds behind them, enhancing their color and getting them prepared for those designs can seem a little easier said than done, though.

That's where Watercolor Florals for Graphic Design comes in.

In this intro course, I share my 9+ years of experience for crafting a great digital product you can use over and over again.

We’ll start with mixing and painting simple large, medium and small florals and add in some foliage, too. Next, we’ll digitize those florals by going through scan settings, talk about resolution, then enhance the color and vibrancy of our foliage and florals. We’ll remove the white backgrounds from our scans with a few easy tricks in Photoshop, then save out our files so they can be placed on any colored or textured background in the future.

With your enrollment, you’ll also receive extra bonuses! Grab a clickable resources list with all of the supplies from the course, and a scanning and resolutions cheat sheet so you’ll always know your florals are sized and res’d correctly for use.

While we *will* paint florals together, the focus of this course will be in Photoshop, so you’ll need access to Photoshop, CS3 or newer on a desktop or laptop computer to successfully complete this course. This course was created with beginners in mind, so if you’ve never painted florals before or are new to Photoshop, it may take a little extra time, but is completely doable. You’ll have 3 floral painting methods to choose from and all keystrokes are posted onscreen for Photoshop with step-by-step narration explaining both the why’s and the how’s.

If you enjoy this intro course and you're ready to take your florals further, check out the complete version of this class here. You can see a comparison chart between this class and the complete version right here.

Can't wait to see what you make!

Excellent course. A lot of information about learning Photoshop is very useful for other images, not only flowers.
