About This Class

4a698b39

Hi! My name is Kate, I am an artist and an illustrator and I am in love with watercolor.

In this class, you will learn to draw and paint beautiful biscuit and cookie illustrations with watercolor and ink.

We will start off with rich tea biscuits, then take on something more complicated like custard creams and jammy dodgers, and pass onto chocolate cookies like Oreos and Bourbons, to finish everything off with vibrant macaroons.

Do not worry if you are just starting out with watercolor, this class is for beginners and advanced watercolorists alike!

I will guide you through every step of the way and explain everything I do, so you will be amazed at what you are able to achieve!

If you are a seasoned watercolor expert I hope to share my knowledge with you and maybe you will learn some new tips&tricks along the way!

If you love food illustration as much as I do then do check out these great classes:

Mariya Popandopulo (sweets, coffee, chocolate and more)

Yasmina Creates (sweets and treats)

So what are you waiting for? Get your watercolors and brushes ready and let’s paint!

Another thing before you start, you can download all the reference materials and art supply list in your project area!

See you in class! :)

Fun class and the instructor was easy to follow, as well as skilled at rendering her subjects. The only fault was that the video playback had some issues; the editing could have been better.

Hi there! I'm Kate and I am an artist and an illustrator (and a mom of a wonderful 2-year-old). I live and work in Cornwall, UK. 

When I was very young I went to art school but did not finish it as I got really tired of everyone telling me what 'the right way' to do things is. I believe that in art there is no right or wrong :)
