More about this course

Let's paint more beautiful birch trees!

In this 25 minute, live-style paint-along class, we will explore painting quick and easy watercolor birch trees. We will be using an unusual tool for watercolor - a palette knife! That's right - we are using a palette knife to paint with watercolor!

If you've taken my other birch tree class, Watercolor with Me: Beautiful Birch Trees, you will see the techniques taught in this class are similar. I filmed this class as a live-style paint along class, but I wanted to include a small lesson on using the palette knife for watercolor. This is an intentionally short, easy to follow, paint-along class.  


The course project

For your project, Please paint a lovely birch tree painting with a palette knife (or plastic card!). I look forward to seeing your paintings in the Project Section!
