About This Class

Welcome to the SketchBook everyday Series of courses.

In this first course, you will learn how to draw and paint 8 different fruits using watercolors.

My name is Mandar, a Fine Artist, and a sculptor. I will be leading you through this course.

I've designed this course for the artist in you who wants to improve your art but has limited time to practice. SketchBook is your best place to practice and hone your skills. It’s your private space;  and your aim here is not to produce a gallery ready painting but to try out new things, have fun and improve your art.

In this course, we will draw and paint 8 different fruits having different colors and textures. By doing simple sketches like this every day you will learn to draw things in a simplistic manner, understand the light & shade;  and gain the confidence to use watercolors more effectively. Painting like this will give you the joy and satisfaction of creating something beautiful every time.

I’ll show you how to draw an outline of each fruit using a pen, create light & shade using a pencil and then how to paint the entire fruit with a few watercolor strokes. This method of painting gives best results and improves artistic confidence very quickly.

This way of practicing is great for people who want to do something creative every day and also for those who want to pursue art as a career. You will see every line that I draw, every brush stroke that I make and I'll also be talking to you about my process.

This course is for you if you want to improve your art and are willing to spend at least 15 minutes every day, practicing. It doesn't matter if you are a student, a professional, a homemaker or a retired person. No prior art making experience is necessary to take this course. Just having the interest is enough.

I look forward to seeing you inside the class!

Very EASY to follow and I enjoyed it very Much!
Thank you for sharing your approach and techniques with this class. I particularly liked the value sketches prior to the painting and would be interested to watch and learn from a class of florals using this same approach. Thank you very much for this class.
