About This Class

In this class I'll be teaching you how to paint Spring Wildflowers in a loose style with watercolors.
I've picked seven different kinds of wildflowers, that are colourful, simple yet have unique features.The class is simple and suitable for all levels of artists, beginners to advanced.

I start by taking you through all the materials that I'll be using in the class. I'll add the names of the main supplies here again.

1. Hahnemühle Cezzane Watercolor Paper, Matt, 300 gsm, 100% Cotton

3. Silver Black Velvet 3000S Round brushes from Silver Brush Limited
