About This Class

Cherry blossoms are popular in Japan. When I visited Japan, I wasn't able to see these pretty pink flowers because I was a few weeks ahead of the blooming season. 

So why not bring these flowers into our homes through watercolor painting? It would be great to hang a beautiful cherry blossom painting on the wall. :)

This class is suitable for beginners and for anybody who wants to learn a loose type of painting florals.

Join me in today's class as we paint simple and easy cherry blossoms. I will guide you with the materials that you need. We only need four colors for this class. We will also talk about the brush strokes for painting a single cherry blossom flower. We will apply the wet in wet and dry brush technique, two lessons that are also applicable on other types of floral. 

At the end of the class, you will be equipped with skills that you can use to paint a cherry blossom branch on your own.

Happy Painting!

Hi everyone! 

My name is Joly and I am a watercolorist based in the Philippines. I discovered painting with watercolor back in 2013. I started out as newbie and learned to paint better through making mistakes and learning from other amazing artists. I just love how we can express ourselves through painting, creating wonderful watercolor florals using our artistic interpretation. It makes each painting really unique!
