What You Will Learn in this Class

All Levels Welcome!

In this class, you will learn how to paint a playful poinsettia in watercolor. We'll paint poinsettias for cardmaking fun and as a bonus, I'll walk you through adapting the painting techniques to create a 5x7 poinsettia painting for framing, gift-giving, and more. 

We'll splash color around and take a deeper dive into JOYFUL techniques.

  • Wet into Wet

  • Wet into Dry

  • Watercolor Glazing

  • Leaving White without Masking

  • Splattering Metallics

These techniques will help us create beautiful texture and build depth of color in our poinsettias.

I’ll demystify and walk you through each technique step-by-step before we paint the final project together. 

Video content delivered in short, technique-based lessons

Each video lesson breaks down the watercolor painting techniques into smaller chunks giving you the ability to follow along using the practice handout. Then, we'll put it all together and create a beautiful butterfly toge

What You'll Make:

Together, we will walk through all of the techniques, paint poinsettia embellishments for holiday cards, and as a bonus, we'll paint a large poinsettia together.
