A fun approachable way to learn watercolor

Hi!

Welcome to this fun, watercolor class! Did you know that my mother is a quilter and has been sewing for well over 40 years? I’ve been around fabric and quilts for a very long time, and my house is full of her beautiful creations.

I’m not much for sewing, but I love to paint! My mother’s quilts were the inspiration for this class and it’s great for beginners and seasoned artists too. You don’t need any drawing skills, just a willingness to learn watercolor, so come and join me!

Much love,

Monica

Exercise 3: Planning

In this video we’ll begin to plan out the fruit you’ll be painting. I’ll show you how to figure out sizing on small grid paper and transfer the design to a larger sheet of watercolor paper.

Final Project: Fruit

In the final three videos of this class, I will paint an orange and you can follow along to see the progression in real time. At the end we’ll add some lettering and final details to bring the piece together.
