More about this course

In this playful class, we’ll be making rainbows in several ways with a muted limited color palette, experimenting with easy, flowy abstracts, and having loads of fun with mark-making. 

This class includes:

  • 7 fun-filled painting projects
  • 15 videos
  • 3+ hours of video content ~ feel free to do just one lesson per day or take several days per lesson
  • Step-by-step painting tutorials that are broken down into easy-to-follow lessons

Class Projects:

  • Two different ways of color play & color mixing, letting colors flow into each other with juicy brushes
  • An easy wet on wet technique that creates gorgeous little abstract paintings
  • Then we'll have some fun with mark-making on top of these abstract paintings, including drawing some botanical designs on them
  • We'll make some pretty, juicy arch patterns, letting the colors run into each other for some gorgeous color mixing and color blooming effects
  • Use a fan brush to paint multicolored, limited palette rainbows in a non-traditional rainbow color palette
  • We'll make some watercolor playgrounds with fields of color and some super fun mark-making
