More about this course

Welcome to the class! Spring is a wonderful season and spring flowers are a beautiful subject to paint in watercolor. In this class, we will be painting spring flowers and exploring different modern watercolor styles.

I enjoyed creating this class and I hope you will like it.

If you are new to the watercolor medium and would like to understand it better, I have 2 classes on watercolor basics:

Essential Watercolor Techniques for Beginners (in this class I am explaining how to paint a realistic tulip)

The Basics of Color Mixing in Watercolor

The classes are concise and fun.

This class is geared toward designers, illustrators or nature sketchers who use watercolor or are attracted to watercolor media.

Happy painting,

x Irina
