More about this course

In this class, you will create a whimsical and wonky flutter. We're going to Scatter JOY using some of my favorite watercolor texture techniques to create this fun 3D butterfly project together. 

We'll splash our way around the color and take a deeper dive into JOYFUL techniques.

  • Wet into wet watercolor and color mixing
  • Sewing
  • Salting
  • Sketching
  • Splattering
  • Scraping

These techniques will help us create beautiful texture in the wings of our flutters. 

I’ll demystify and walk you through each technique step-by-step before we paint the final project together. 

Each video lesson breaks down the watercolor painting techniques into smaller chunks giving you the ability to follow along using the practice handout. Then, we'll put it all together and create a beautiful butterfly.
