About This Class

In this class I'll share how I paint leaves with watercolor using different watercolor techniques and seven types of leaves as examples.

The skills I'll demonstrate include:

  • mixing paint for a general palette using pan watercolor paints
  • observing a subject and creating preliminary pencil sketches 
  • wet on wet washes
  • wet on dry washes
  • lifting paint with a damp brush
  • layering paint
  • mixing color on the page
  • painting fine details

These skills can be used in many other watercolor applications.

The leaves I paint in this class are from the following plants:

  • lipstick plant
  • jade plant
  • marigold
  • orchid
  • oxalis
  • nasturtium
  • rose
