We'll dive into understanding the structure of this flower so it makes sense to us, providing a joyous and peaceful process . Paint on petal/wetintowet, then wetintoet technique next, laying down a coat of water on our petals and adding watercolor for an ethereal effect. Lifting,to pull out a bit of the color and serve as a light source, we'll use a technique called "lifting" to enhance our flower petals .

As she paints in real time, we are given tips and advice on how to bring our paintings to life. I'm really a beginner, but I love your artwork so much that I tried the class. This class was just what I needed to find my watercolor legs again and to remember the joy of paintng! she inspires us with her talent and also reminds us of the importance of painting with joy and authenticity. Cara shares her extensive knowledge and experience as a watercolor painter in this beautiful class.
