About This Class

This class is suitable for beginners.

In this class I will explain step by step how to paint realistic looking watercolor cherries, the same techniques can be applied to paint any berries you like (preferably simple shaped).

Find reference pictures of different berries and color "recipes" in project section of the class. 

If you are new to the watercolor medium and would like to understand it better, I have 2 classes on watercolor basics:

Essential Watercolor Techniques for Beginners

The Basics of Color Mixing in Watercolor

The classes are concise and fun.

This class is geared toward designers, illustrators or nature sketchers who use watercolor or are attracted to watercolor media.

Happy Painting!

Irina is painting with so much confidence yet breaks it down to step by step so beginners and more advance artists can learn from her as well. Easy project you can do as a daily painting habit.

Very good class, though definitely for more advanced students - not beginners.
Delicious class :)
