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. 

In this class, you will learn: 

  • Useful materials for making watercolor postcards
  • Creative watercolor techniques like glazing, blending, and subtractive painting 
  • How to create small thumbnails you can use to plan out your art before getting started
