About This Class
In my beginner class, I showed you all the basics of transparencies, pulse and precision. In this class, we are taking it a step further and actually creating AMAZING watercolor paintings using these simple tools and applying them to your ideas and a final work of art in mind.
We begin by practicing our textures is this really fun activity I like to call texture swatches. Through this activity I will bring you into my creative process and experience how I come up with new ideas.
I will also show you examples of fantastic artists I admire and analyze how they apply textures into their works of art.
By the time we get to our final project you will be a pro at textures and will have the confidence to jump into a final illustration with full commitment. Our final project will be painting an animal and/or the environment surrounding it. I promise you’ll make something beautiful! :D

I love to watch you paint. The skill that exhibit is wonderful. I never thought of adding "texture" to my watercolor. I found this class very helpful.
