About This Class

In this class, I will guide you through my process of painting three different snow globes using watercolour paints. 

I will start by giving you an overview of the supplies that I use and then we will practice a variety of basic techniques that will be useful in the class. These include different techniques for painting skies, clouds and snow, a quick look at how to add shadows, and varying colour values to paint trees in the background and foreground and adding snow to these trees. I will then take you through my process, step by step in real time, for sketching and painting three snow globes with different winter scenes.

I hope this class will allow you to feel more confident using watercolours and that you will be able to use the techniques we practice to design your own snow globe or winter scene that you will be really proud of by the end of it!
