Another wonderful class. I’m fascinated by the wide array of techniques Jessica uses for creating a variety of special paint effects. Jessica demonstrates how to use different ingredients to open up the water colour to create a natural sense of depth behind her snowflakes and for the snowflakes themselves. These are techniques you can vary to suit the colour you have chosen and the look you are after.
