About This Class


After completing this class you will be able to paint simple but very beautiful custom postcards or greeting cards on a topic you have chosen. No previous experience with watercolors is required as we will also cover some basic techniques with this medium.

The class is a creativity exercise as well and you will see that after completing it you will be left with numerous ideas for different projects using the same approach.

The postcard/greeting card that you will create can be on a topic you have chosen - a holiday, a personal milestone, birthday or just based on your mood.

The most important thing is to get over the intimidation that sometimes watercolors can bring and learn to enjoy mixing the colors.


What are you going to learn:

  • Watercolor basics - brushes, how to use water
  • Creating hues
  • Watercolor techniques to create effects and texture
  • Adding details and finishing touches with a different medium

I love LOVE and positivism and all cute, tiny things. I am inspired by humanity and most of all by my beautiful daughter and her childish innocence.
