Project Description

Now that you have seen me paint 5 different leaves, it's time for a project for you. Look at the leaves of any plant or tree in your home or backyard and try making a watercolor sketch of one of the leaves. Though painting based on a real object is best, use a photograph to make things a bit convenient for you.

If you feel a little more adventurous, paint multiple leaves next to each other or paint a complete branch.

While doing all this, remember that you are not creating a painting for exhibiting in any gallery. So relax, take a deep breath and enjoy the process of sketching and painting. Do not worry about the outcome.

Even if your painting turns out not so good looking, you have learned something in the process and you will get better with practice. Do this as a ritual for a week and see your progress for yourself.

I and your fellow students are all eager to see what you're painting, so share some photos of your work with us.

I request you to post a review for this class and tell me things, that you think, can make this course even better.I also want you to tell me what you would like to learn in the future classes in this series.

Thank you and Happy painting!
