About This Class

If you struggle to paint loosely in watercolor this course is for you. Paint Wild Fennel using wet-in-wet, masking, and layering techniques. Using these easy-to-follow steps you can create watercolors with depth - even if you are just a beginner.

Techniques you will learn in this course.

  • Layering of color to create depth in your watercolors
  • Masking to preserve the lights
  • Painting wet-in-wet
  • How to paint background washes
  • How to mix different greens
  • Using warm and cool colors for important contrasts

Using these techniques above will enable you to create your very own loose watercolor painting. Be sure to also post your painting in the gallery to share with other students in order to get feedback. I love to see what students achieve and will help with any issues you may experience.
