fun and easy techniques to make flowers
Love this class, now I feel like I could paint flowers in my own watercolor journal! I love the fact that Lisa broke down each step for the leaves and each flower before we started the final project plus she included a downloadable handout that we can keep and refer back to for the flowers, leaves and stems. I loved each step of the process and everything was very well explained and each step was shown to us. Had so much fun!! I cannot draw, but now I feel like i can add these flowers to my art journal and have some beautiful pages! Thanks Lisa for a great class!
I love the big loose nature of the flowers
