If you are new to watercolours or have painted watercolours for some time and want to improve your techniques, this projects guides you through the fundamentals and the tricky bits to ensure you really achieve those soft folds in the petals and delicate highlights in the detail. If you haven’t painted flowers in detail it is really worth practising the techniques in a couple of petals before you tackle the whole composition, Denise demonstrates this in part one by painting two petals in real time. The course includes five videos:
- How to set up your workstation
- Materials, colours and preparation.
- Painting two petals in detail.
- Painting the purple anemone.
- Painting the pink anemone, bud and foliage.
Denise demonstrates the techniques and all the stages including: wet into wet, lifting, blending, moist on wet and wet on dry.
Materials list, photograph and sketch, all are downloadable.
The structured lessons are designed to let you learn at your own pace, in your own time, with all the materials you need listed to get you started and online support from me via the comments section.
