About This Class


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.  : )

Yay! I love classes like this one that take their time to explain you everything and make sure things are clear. It is also great when a class (like this one) shows the natural artistic process of the teacher without editing out mistakes or skipping steps. It also has lots of examples and it is beginner friendly :)

A nice class to spend a creative hour, worked just great for me to get back to painting after a break.

Chris teaches in a really relaxed, instructional way. I enjoyed playing with patterns, gathering resources from old magazines and trying to reproduce patterns. Definitely a watercolor confidence building course!
