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:

The classes are concise and fun.
