About This Class

a530c271

The contents of this class are also found in my Watercolor Florals: Orchids class (so part of the content of that class will be duplicated if you take both).  I wanted to make the first part of the class available for everyone for free, since it explains the basic techniques that I use to paint my watercolors. The Watercolor Florals: Orchids and Watercolors for Illustrators include these basic techniques and much more!

In this class I cover some basic techniques that will help you get started with watercolors. You will learn simple ways of creating shadows and highlight, adding textures and my tips on how to gain brush control so that you can make more precise lines.

Its very quick and simple and well explained and demonstrated. Great if you want to learn some useful techniques fast.
Very short, yet covered several important points about the different properties in types of watercolours, and how the dryness or dampness of the brush affected the work. And many thanks for sharing freely,
Very nice and short videos on watercolor basic techniques, thank you :)

I love mixing ...
