If you are new to watercolors and want to give watercolor florals a try, then this introductory class is perfect for you! In this beginner-friendly class, you will learn foundational watercolor techniques and how to paint stylized watercolor florals full of depth.
But what gives a painting depth? There are two things that really make your florals stand out—first, the highlights and shadows that you depict through color and shading, and second, the details which help bring out the delicate textures of the flowers.The class is essentially divided into two main parts. In the first part, we will start with the basics and practice foundational watercolor techniques such as
Wet on Wet.
Wet on Dry.
My personal twist on wet on wet which I call pulling the paint from the edges.
Short liner brush control—which is one of my favorite tools in my art kit! And
In the second part, we will work on our final Class Project, using the techniques we learned earlier in the class. You’ll learn how to
Break down a reference image by observing the parts, folds, and details of a flower
Make the most out of a limited palette
Add depth to your painting with lights and shadows, and
Use a short liner brush for texture and detailing
Throughout the class, I will walk you through my artistic thought process and teach you how to best compose your portraits for aestheticism. I will share the tips and tricks that I’ve mastered throughout my years of experience, and what I wish I knew when I first got started. These techniques are what helped me take my paintings to the next level, and allowed me to get consistent results every time.
By the end of the class, you will not only develop the skills to paint lovely floral portraits, but also the confidence to make larger floral compositions and paintings of full bouquets too!
See you in class!
