About This Class


In this class, I will teach you how to sketch and paint a realistic water drop with watercolor and gouache. 

We will be using the glazing technique and only two colors. 

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 shiny wet water drop of your own! :)

Here are 25 free places for my class!

Art supplies I am using:

Canson cold press watercolor paper (140lb)

Graphite pencil (HB-3H)

Kneaded eraser

Sennelier watercolors (Payne's Grey & Cerulean Blue)

Synthetic brushes (No. 4 & 8)

Winsor & Newton Designer Gouache (Permanent White)
