About This Class


In this class, I will teach you how to paint a beautiful illustration of a bell pepper with watercolor and gouache. 

We will be using the glazing technique for this project, so get your blow-drier ready! :)

If you are a complete beginner, do not get intimidated by how complicated it might seem at first. I will guide you step-by-step through the whole process and by the end of the class, you will have a juicy red bell pepper! :)

I have created 25 free access links so you can watch the class completely free! 

Art supplies I am using:

Canson cold press watercolor paper (140lb)

Graphite pencil (HB-3H)

Kneaded eraser

Sennelier watercolors

Synthetic brush (No. 8)

Winsor & Newton Designer Gouache (Permanent White)

This will be a series of classes focusing on painting a single object with watercolors.
