What You Will Learn in this Class

Whimsical Watercolor Mini Class

Let's paint a hot air balloon and create an oversized card project together!

In the whimsical watercolor mini-class series, I'm sharing bite-sized art lessons in watercolor and other mediums like colored pencils, markers, gouache, and more. 

The intention of this course series is to provide mini-class lessons packed with techniques that are easy to understand, replicate, and master. 

AND, we'll create a fun oversized card project together.  At the end of the series, you'll have 12 or more card projects that you handpainted. 

In This Mini Class, You Will Learn: 

  • How to paint loose roses in watercolor and create dreamy, washy-washy effects
  • What is gouache and how to create the "look" if you don't own any? Hint: it's opaque watercolor. 
  • How to add simple details with pen and/or ink
  • Splatter effects
  • Wet into Wet and Wet into Dry Watercolor Techniques
  • To get comfortable with brushstrokes and brush dancing
  • To TRUST Yourself! You can do this!


What Do You Need to Take this Class?

Grab the following from your stash:

  • A simple set of watercolors. Whatever you have will work!
  • In this class, we'll be using the following colors: Pink, Orange, Blue, Brown, and White
  • White Gouache if you have it. If not, grab some white acrylic paint or white watercolor
  • Black pen or sketch marker
  • Watercolor paper sized at 5x7. Whatever you have on hand. I prefer 100% cotton. 
  • A piece of cardstock or watercolor paper (heavy paper so you can make the A-7 sized card base. Flat size 10 x 6.9, scored at 5 inches and the final folded size is 5 x 6.9 
  • Brushes in your favorite sizes: I like Rounds in 6,8 and 10 and a 3 for small details.


It's just a general list I share in all my classes.
