About This Class

3e64e15d

Join me as I share my love of fashion fabric prints with you, and show you my process for portraying them in watercolor.  It's pretty exhilarating to see prints painted in your own charming and organic style.  Give the classic textile prints, a whole new look, while experimenting with some modern prints.  

This class is perfect for fashion illustrators, graphic designers, surface patterns designers, and artists from beginning to advanced levels.  I can't wait to see your favorite swatches in the Project Gallery!  Happy painting.  : )

very inspirational...made me want to pick up my paint brushes again!
