About This Class

Hello and welcome to my first Skillshare class! I am so excited to be able to share what I have learned on my artistic journey with you! Today we are starting from the beginning with watercolor basics. My goal with this class is to reach those who are at a beginner level and help minimize some of the fears of trying a new material!

In this class you will learn about:

  • Supplies (even down to brand name) that will help you be successful and what to look for when you go to an art store.
  • Different ways you can use one brush to make a variety of lines.
  • Watercolor techniques that will help bring your first painting to life such as: wash techniques, dry brush, masking fluid, tape techniques, lifting, and layering.

Lets dive in to the world of watercolor!
