More about this course

Hey, cuties, I am Comic black rainbow, I am a visual creator, and anime drawing educator.

Watercolor pens are magic tools. A variety of strokes can be painted by them. That’s why we have to understand how to control the movement of the watercolor pen.

In this class, you’ll learn how to use watercolor pens to make multiple effects! It is great for beginners who never paint with watercolor or who are not familiar with painting watercolor!!! Or you want to know how the movement I use with watercolor pens, it’s suited for you!!! It’s not difficult so you just take easy, come into the class and learn something back!!!

I will use three common watercolor pens (Round/tip/Flat) to demonstrate various techniques. After you learn those skills, I will demonstrate how to draw a painting with dry brush techniques so that you will know how and when you can use those skills to paint. And I will give you a topic, the topic is Dog. You can paint it with those techniques you learn for this class!!!

In the end, don’t be shy to share your final result and tell us what the techniques you use in your works!!! Share your work in the Project Gallery of this class can inspire others after you finish the practice! 

Again, thank you for watching my class, I can't wait to see your work with the techniques you learn from this class!
