About This Class

In this class, we'll paint what I call a Feather Forest pattern, in watercolor and gold. I'll guide you step by step in choosing your paints and applying them to get a variety of hues, values, and intensities. I'll walk you through my process so that you can learn from the considerations I make as I work. These often get lost when watching a speeded-up video, so I've provided plenty of real-time speed video as well as commentary on how I work and why.

Paint along with me and try out these methods, see which of them work for you and which you prefer to tweak and do differently. 

Since this is a focused, slow-paced class with a lot of guidance, it's perfect for beginners and for those who feel somewhat intimidated by watercolor. It's also a great class for those who want to paint this pretty pattern along with me! If you're in the mood for a challenge, I'd love to see how you tweak this pattern according to your own design and interpretation.

I look forward to seeing your feather forest watercolor paintings!

Great Class...So much fun!
This is a fantastic class with a project that is easily achievable and a show stopper. I'm totally inspired to keep going with this technique and see where it takes me!
