About This Class

Learn how to paint sunlit forests that have depth and dimension!  In this 40 minute class lead by artist Ariane Hope, you will learn some principles of color theory and a few basic watercolor techniques.  Using that knowledge, you will create a simple, but eye-catching forest scene. Some previous watercolor experience is helpful, but is definitely not necessary to complete this project.  There are so many moods you can create with your forests depending on your color scheme, so experimentation is encouraged!
