I used to be intimidated by watercolor. It’s so fast and unpredictable! For people with control issues like me, fast and unpredictable is my worst nightmare! But there’s also nothing like watercolor to teach you the incredibly valuable life lesson of going with the flow… FOR REALS! 😀
Over time, I’ve learned to love, love, love it and embrace the chaos and happy accidents of watercolor. If you’ve been curious about watercolors, come join me for my new Skillshare class, Simple Watercolor Techniques: Make a Personal Mandala.
It’s perfect for beginners or even people who have used watercolors before but want some new techniques in their toolbox. I share my process in step-by-step demos — it’s the first class where I’ve done this so thoroughly for painting.
I feature different watercolor techniques and then show you how I incorporate them all into an illustration project, in this case, a personal mandala. You can follow along with me, and recreate my mandala step-by-step with the template I provide or you can make your own design. In the last video, I’ll share additional templates so you can continue to play and experiment with different ones.
If you’re ready to mix things up and embrace the chaos in 2017, come join. If you’re new to Skillshare, use this link to get a 3-month premium membership for only 99 cents.
