More about this course

This is a beginner-friendly class that shows all the steps in painting cherry blossoms with watercolor in real time. In this class, you will be able to learn very easy techniques in creating soft petals with intricate details, as well as graceful looking stems and an atmospheric background. 

The course project

I encourage you to watch this video once without painting yet, so you can fully understand the process, then one more time - the second time painting with me so you can apply the steps and see for yourself that these are all easy! Then please submit your finished artwork, as this would be a great way to also encourage others to try painting this very beautiful subject which a lot of beginners find to be complicated. And if you have any questions or suggestions, do let me know!
