About This Class

Paint a beautiful watercolor fox with professional watercolor artist and teacher Louise De Masi in this 49 minute class.


Louise will guide you through two specific techniques that add the element of texture to simple watercolor washes. She will demonstrate how to paint fur with watercolor, simply and expressively using salt and deliberate 'blooms.'

Discover how Louise:

  • Blends colours on the paper
  • Works wet on wet
  • Applies salt washes 
  • Creates deliberate 'blooms' or 'back runs'
  • Adds detail
  • Simplifies a reference photo

When you enroll in this class you will have access to a line drawing of the fox that you can download so you can paint along with Louise. You will also be able to download 2 progress photos and the final photo of Louise's painting. 

This class is suitable for intermediate painters but beginners will also find it useful.

So grab your brushes and start painting!
