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!

Hello!  I'm Ariane, and I am so excited to finally be on Skillshare!  For practically my whole life, I've been doing some type of art or crafting.  I got into watercolors a year or so ago and I haven't looked back since!  I love landscapes but have been branching out to other subjects, which I hope to teach some classes on in the future.  Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!
