About This Class

Professional watercolor artist and teacher Louise De Masi has an eye for detail. She has developed a style of painting where she begins with loose wet on wet washes and ends with fine realistic rendering. Join her in her home as she shares her painting techniques with you.

In this 81 minute tutorial Louise will guide you through the painting of three different herbs in watercolor - Sage, Rosemary and French Sorrel. The different painting stages of each herb are divided into 5 short videos.
