About This Class

Welcome to my 3rd skillshare class: Watercolor Textures, if you enjoyed my beginner class and mixed media class you’re gonna love this!

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

Es mi primera clase que tomo en Skillshare y la disfruté mucho. Hacer texturas es divertido y creo que ayuda mucho hacer cosas que nunca se nos ocurriría hacer, como hacer todo un proyecto con texturas, sobre todo para principiantes creo puede ser una base importante para ir creando un estilo o al menos experimentar todo lo que se pueda.
Excellent!!!
Ana is amazing with examples of creative approaches to color and textures in watercolor!
