About This Class

In this class you will learn how to paint loose florals in Watercolor and ink. You can use this for so many things like weddingstationary, painting your favourite bouquets, graphics for webdesign and so much more. 

We will start the class with a bit of sketchbookpractice where we’ll paint Tulips, Muscari and the ever feared Peony. But no need to shake! I teach in a flowing style and make painting florals fun and... well... loose... you know like loose florals should be. The sketching is to familiarize us with the flowers and to make it easy to use them later on.

After some sketching we'll mix the flowers in a beautiful bouquet with tips and tricks on composing and balancing the elements.
