About This Class

This class is suitable for beginners.

Tropical foliage is a very trendy topic this year and it will make a great addition to your creative portfolio. Especially are popular tropical leaves on the dark background, that is why we will explore two different color schemes for our tropical foliage.

In this class I will explain step by step how to draw and paint 5 different tropical leaves:

- Banana Leaf

- Philodendron Leaf

- Areca Palm Leaf

- Fan Palm Leaf

- and Fishtail Palm Leaf

Also, we will mix two different color schemes for our tropical collections for a daylight and for a night scene tropical garden.

If you are new to the watercolor medium and would like to understand it better, I have 2 classes on watercolor basics:

Essential Watercolor Techniques for Beginners

The Basics of Color Mixing in Watercolor

The classes are concise and fun.

This class is geared toward designers, illustrators or nature sketchers who use watercolor or are attracted to watercolor media.
