Fantasia: a composition with a free form and often an improvisatory style.
Creating from the imagination frees you from perfectionism, allowing you to follow your bliss. In this online watercolor class we'll be creating flowers - using nature as our muse - following the guidelines of form and light, but ultimately letting our imagination lead the way.
Welcome to Flower Fantasia.
I would consider this class level the next step after 'beginner' - if you've taken one of my other classes or have a pretty good understanding of watercolor, this class is perfect. There is something here for everyone! My process is not difficult and involves a lot of intuitive painting. No matter your level, you'll learn! (If you've never used watercolor before, I would suggest starting with Cosmic Watercolor or Enchanted Feathers first.)
This is a self-guided study with live recorded lessons available when you arrive. No waiting for projects to be posted and you can learn at your own pace. You have unlimited, lifetime access.
The lessons are video based. I walk you through step by step, with each lesson building on the next.
There are colorful photographs and plenty of written tips and inspiration along the way.
Class can be viewed via most digital devices, but viewing the video lessons is best done on a computer or tablet screen.
A high-speed connection is highly suggested!

WHAT WE'LL BE PAINTING:
Poppies, Calla Lillies and Roses, oh my! I'll show you how I draw and paint each of these beautiful flowers, using the basics of shape and form to accomplish a likeness, then allowing our imagination to fill in the details.
The three images above are the major projects we'll create. The painting techniques I use to create these flowers can be used to paint anything... There's plenty of information to keep you happily creating!
I always say use what you have - but I urge painters to use artist grade watercolor paper in 140lb cold press - the choice is always yours!
The specific paint colors I will use in class are as follows, but please note, these are NOT a necessity - the techniques can be used with any colors. PRIMA: Tropicals Palette DANIEL SMITH: Hansa Yellow Deep, Green Gold, Sap Green WINSOR NEWTON: Permanent Rose, Cobalt Blue WINSOR NEWTON COTMAN: Mauve
You can use whatever paint brushes you are comfortable with - I use rounds, sizes 0-8
CLASS COST: $25 USD
