About This Class

Hi class!

In this watercolor painting class, I will be teaching how to paint a simple, yet detailed watercolor olive wreath with leaves + stems in the shape of a wreath.

I go step-by-step, from mixing the colors we will be using to actually sketching it so you can see my process before painting.

You Will Learn:

2) Simple techniques in using several shades of green watercolor paint to create detail
