Overview

In this class, you'll learn the basic techniques for creating a loose floral arrangement using watercolors.

If you’re a beginner, this class is a great place to start because we’ll take it one step at a time.

From learning how colors and water work together, to drawing and painting each botanical element, you’ll learn everything you need to know to paint a loose watercolor floral arrangement.

I know how tricky this medium can be, especially in the beginning, and this is why I focus each lesson on practicing each element of our final composition separately, going for a modern, simple, and loose style.

The methods and skills you will develop in this class can be applied to many art projects, from just simple floral designs to complex watercolor botanicals.

In this class you'll learn how to:

  • use the wet-on-wet technique
  • create simple botanical sketches to help you feel more comfortable with your drawing skills
  • paint delicate loose flowers, leaves, and branches
  • apply the tips I share about composition and create a well balanced floral arrangement

Who’s this class for? This class is designed for anyone who would like to begin exploring the world of watercolors. Although this course is geared primarily towards beginners, anyone with an interest in botanicals, or a desire to learn more about watercolors and the loose painting style, is more than welcome to join!

Materials you'll need:

  • watercolor paper
  • watercolor paints
  • watercolor brushes
  • a palette
  • paper towels
  • one or two jars of water
  • a pencil
  • a fineliner
