Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, a self-taught mixed media artist who loves exploring art and sharing it with you!

In this beginner watercolor class, I will show you a fantastic way to improve your watercolor skills with daring doodling!

First, I will highlight the skills you can improve and build by doing simple doodle pattern painting.  

Then, We will take a look at some ink doodles, and I'll walk you through the process of translating ink doodles into fantastic watercolor patterns.  I have provided a reference copy of my chart, and you can create your own chart of ink and watercolor patterns.  

Next, I will paint some examples for you.
