I drew my forest several times before I was able to get the proportions into a size where the trees would blend right, I love the idea of salting for texture and the end result of dressing up the painting in the end has been a new stretch for me as well. I think this is a must class not only for learning about how watercolors work, but an easy way to understand the concept of shading. Thanks so much!!!
Teaching is clear and gets you useful techniques. Most of all it was fun!
It is very straightforward and she makes it seem easy.

I am a creative spirit, self-thought in painting and design. I am also a former biomedical scientist and academic teacher, and I still love both, experimenting (my lab is my art space now), as well as sharing my knowledge and skills (that´s one of the reasons I teach on Skillshare).

Among other things, I am a random guitar player, rock collector, and enthusiast of journeys into the unknown.
