About This Class

Welcome to the SketchBook everyday Series of courses. In this seventh course, you will learn how to draw and paint 4 different cacti using watercolors.

My name is Mandar, a fine Artist, and a sculptor. I will be leading you through this course.

I've designed this course for the artist in you who wants to improve your art but has limited time to practice. Your sketchbook is your best place to practice and hone your skills. It’s your private space;  and your aim here is not to produce a gallery ready painting but to try out new things, have fun and improve your art.

Watching other artists draw and paint and then practicing the same is a time-tested way of improving one’s artistic ability. That’s the reason I show you every line that I draw, every brush stroke that I make and explain to you each step of my artistic process.

I’ll show you how I draw and shade each cactus with pencil and then how I paint it with watercolors. This method of painting gives best results and improves artistic confidence very quickly.

This course is for you if you want to improve your art and are willing to spend at least 15 minutes every day, practicing. It doesn't matter if you are a student, a professional, a homemaker or a retired person. No prior art making experience is necessary to take this course. Just having the interest is enough.

I look forward to seeing you inside the class.
