Watercolor: Loose FloralsNov 07, 2018
Ah, the sweet, playful, loose watercolor florals... these are the ultimate coveted style that we are all striving to create. This class will guide you through some basic techniques to help you create a few different styles of flowers (yes, peonies are in here), but more importantly, show you the brush strokes needed to move into a style of your very own.
In this class, we will demystify the lack of structure by introducing a playful style of flowers using new knowledge of how to control your paint’s transparency, flow, and blending properties.
We’ll explore a number of different flowers that will help you achieve any look you’re going for in your art pieces. You’ll learn how to add depth using pigment, brush control to produce effortless strokes, and color harmony.
You’ll even learn how to paint the perfect peony in under 5 minutes!
Lastly, we’ll explore how to break the rules a bit to get a little messier, bringing a whole new look to our florals.
This class is perfect for you if you’re ready to start painting flowers and leaves with less structure for a bright, soft, inviting appeal and caters to both watercolorists who have dabbled or never even touched a brush before! I gotchu.
