Brush Stroke Practice & Lavender Field Landscape
In this class, we will do several brush stroke exercises with our Royal & Langnickel brushes, building confidence in how and when to use each brush. I will also give tips for how to create a sense of depth and perspective as we paint this gorgeous lavender field landscape, practicing our strokes along with other techniques like building layers and adding textures.
Color Mixing Practice & Loose Florals with Lettering
As we experiment with color mixing and discuss some basic color theory, we will create small paintings of favorite garden flowers. We will observe how the palette is filled with far more than 24 colors and practice saving white space among other useful strategies. I will also demonstrate several lettering techniques to complete the look.
Wash Practice & Misty Mountain Landscape
In this class we will practice different types of washes and apply what we learn to this stunning river and mountain landscape. We will learn how to adjust color values to create depth and how to scrub out color to create mist and sun rays.
Bleed, Bloom, and Charge Practice & Boho Owl
Bleed, bloom, and charge are classic techniques to master with watercolors, and this charming owl will give us opportunities to practice them all, along with discussing color and brush choices, and creating a pleasing composition of flowers, leaves, and feathers for the crown.
Ink & Wash Practice & Hummingbird
In this class, we will combine watercolors with micron ink to create this colorful hummingbird. I will demonstrate how to add pops and splatters of color for extra energy. Ink provides the opportunity to create fine detail, especially useful for feathers. I will also share other ways to use ink and wash effectively.
