About This Class

Sometimes, all you want to do with watercolors is throw some paint onto a piece of paper just for the fun of it! Creating watercolor postcards can be the perfect way to turn that enjoyable experience into an extremely rewarding craft - and I'm going to show you how to refine that process so that you can appreciate the results even more.
