About This Class

In this class you will learn the techniques I use to create "wave lettering."  I will teach you how to practice the strokes and watercolor techniques I use for this style.  I will then demonstrate how I create the word 'love' from start to finish which includes adding details and shadows to make the lettering pop. I will also demonstrate another step by step process to create the phrase "beach vibes." Although I don’t give you an entire wave alphabet to copy, after watching this Skillshare class, you will have the insights you need to create your own wave letters that fit together in the words you choose to write.
