This is a beginner friendly class on painting a Cafe Au Lait Dahlia using watercolors. The entire class is filmed in real time with voice instructions to adequately guide you from start to end. In this class, I will provide you with the list of materials you need for painting, I will show you how to mix colors to achieve the soft shades for the petals, and I will also show you the basic brush strokes necessary to paint the petals.
