About This Class

Creating wonderfully chaotic florals isn't the end game. Creating wonderfully vibrant florals in a way that's pleasing to the eye and easy to implement into today's designs is! 

In this follow up class to Modern Watercolor Florals--3 Ways, Amarilys carries the three techniques through the process of creating wreaths. Wreaths are a key design motif that reels in the engaging, flowing shapes to arrange them into a rhythmic, soothing composition. 

You'll learn: 

  • Practical helps for creating a symmetrical layout
  • When to paint what when you're needing to overlap elements
  • How to create interest without frustrating your viewer
  • Best practices with materials
  • Diverse approaches to style
  • A variety of forms that compose a collection of florals

Garlands, wreaths, a string of flowers--call them what you may, these design elements are both beautiful and incredibly practical as they can be applied so seamlessly to text layouts. 

The projects from our initial florals class were exponential to the three techniques shown! This class will only compound the skills we've already seen from then.
