Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, watercolor and mixed-media artist, who loves exploring art and sharing it with you!

Watercolor with Me: Beautiful Birch Trees

Let's paint some beautiful birch trees!

In this class for every level, 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! We will also experiment with watercolor crystals called Brusho.  

First, we will talk about supplies, and warmup with the techniques we will be using in this class. 

Then, I will demonstrate 6 different birch tree paintings! We will start with a practice painting, and gradually add a little more difficulty as we go. Most paintings can be completed in 5-10 minutes. The most complex painting only takes about 20 minutes!! This is such a fun and easy technique!  

Your lovely birch tree paintings will make great holiday or Christmas cards!!
