About This Class


Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, a self-taught mixed media artist who loves exploring art and sharing it with you!

In this beginner watercolor class, I will show you my loose and free style for painting with watercolor.  I'll walk you through the techniques and skills needed to paint loose, juicy fruit slices -- lemon, & kiwi & watermelon.  

First, we will embrace the water in watercolor by creating 3 consistencies of paint.

Next, we will practice the wet on dry technique.

Then, we will invite the color to flow by adding water to our paper.  We will practice painting fine lines, and creating flow from them.

I've created a special Pinterest board to inspire you.

Then, I will walk you through painting 3 juicy summer fruit slices - lemon, kiwi, and watermelon!

This class is awesome for the newbies, like me, because starts from the very beginning, helping us to understand, in a very practical and easy way, how the watercolours behave. I'm grateful with Jessica Sanders for this enjoyable class.
