About This Class

Welcome to my second Skillshare class! This class is aimed towards intermediate level watercolor users. If you are a beginner, please take my first class: Modern Watercolor Techniques for Beginners, as we will be referring to basic techniques throughout this class. 

Here I will show you how to achieve great results painting in negative space, using either your pulse and precision skills, or masking fluid, as well as techniques for using white paint (ink or acrylics) over you watercolors. 

I also demonstrate a variety of paintings I have created and explain why and how I used certain techniques.

I addition, we will dive into experimental watercolor even more, using different mediums and household supplies, including masking fluid, acetone (nail polish remover), thick grain salt… to name a few!

By the end of this class you will be able to complete an AMAZING watercolor illustration, using the various techniques we have learned. You will also begin to train your watercolor brain to think in layers and sections.

Happy to have you here!
