About This Class

Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, a self-taught watercolor and mixed-media artist who loves exploring art and sharing it with you!

Welcome to Loose & Lovely Watercolor: Fantasy Flowers!

Let’s paint watercolor flowers!  

Not just any watercolor flowers - let’s paint loose, abstract fantasy flowers.  

These flowers may remind you of real flowers, but that is not the focus of our painting.  We want to focus on exploring watercolor using floral shapes.

In this class for all levels, we will explore 5 fantasy flower designs using bold, vibrant color and metallics.  :)

I will share my simple techniques for creating stunning flower designs.  Then we will put it all together by creating layered floral designs. We will also talk about cropping our painting to create a beautiful composition.  As always, we will wrap it up with a project using the skills and techniques we have learned in the class.

This class is exactly what I am looking for - to help me play and have fun and relax - all the while learning so much. As a beginner watercolorist, all Jessica's instructions are helpful. No detail is too small. Smart teacher! And she is a joy to listen to as well.
Very nice class, as always ! Helpful! I've always been trying to paint roses.

She did very well in teaching the classes. She kept it simple yet informative and helped me to remember to just keep it simple and relaxed.
