About This Class

This class is suitable for beginners.

In this class, I will explain step by step how to draw and paint a stylized and a realistic looking butterfly. I will also explain how to mix a harmonious color scheme for your illustration, and how to achieve, an ethereal look in watercolor paintings. Also, I will show some ideas of art projects with painted butterflies, such as illustration, collage, nature journaling, craft projects, costume, and event decorating.  

If you are a watercolor beginner, I invite you to take my 2 watercolor basics classes, to better understand this beautiful medium:


Happy painting!

x Irina.
