About This Class

In this class, Watercolor Mood Letters, you will learn the techniques I use to create a handlettering piece using color themed mood boards as inspiration for color and texture.  The class will go over some basic understanding of some of the fundamentals of art including: color, texture, balance, and movement. In addition, there's a fun lesson on creating fun watercolor texture. The class will also cover some basic lettering styles including: serif, sans serif, script, and blackletter as well as give you letter inspiration for you to start your project. Combining all that the class teaches, I will demonstrate how to create a step by step class project consisting of six different styles of the same letter using a specific color theme.
