About This Class

0e1f5f43

This is a really simple but effective technique that will combine watercolour and transform them with the addition of thin black line. Starting with a basic wet on wet technique, further washes of colour will be applied. Then  finally adding the pen detail to compliment and add information for each icon, like the stem of a flower.

I hope it will appeal to anyone who likes to have fun with their watercolours, even beginners. You can achieve great results and it can be used for many subject matter, not just the icons shown in this class, so please feel free to explore further. For part of this class I do recommend looking at reference - either online or from life so that your sketches will really stand out.  I can't wait to see your versions of this technique.
