In this coming class, I will be continuing from my previous class which is how to paint magical galaxies with watercolor and gouache, so please check the class prior to the up coming class.
This new class will be structured as a paint with me class, where I will be painting in real time on how I approach applying the techniques learnt from the previous class into animal paintings, and how to combine both galaxy colours with animal texture such as fur with gold accents. I will be referring to the same steps as the previous class, so if you're new to galaxy painting, it would make more sense to try out the class project in part 1 of galaxy painting with watercolor and gouache to get a good feel of the mediums.
For the subject of this class, we will be painting a fox. Students are free to paint along for the class project with the exact same colours, but if you're an advance student, you may also choose your colour combination.
This are galaxy animal paintings that I have done in the past as examples of what's to come :)
Take the class here! :)
This is where I will be introducing the lesson along with the outline of each lesson with little snippets.
