After my first class, I found that many of you were interested in going back to the very basics of what watercolor is all about. Understanding one of the most enchanting mediums I’ve come know…
It brings me back to the day I was gifted my first set of watercolors. I remember sitting on a bench at the dining table in my parent’s house while my Aunt was down for a visit from Virginia. We sat there with my brothers for hours, painting away. She showed us how to make a color chart, which I intently worked on until I finished. I was fascinated! Something clicked (and thus began my many watercolors of horses). Watching my Aunt paint was another story- I loved watching the colors slowly form into an image. An image you may not have been able to guess right away, but then the “AHA” moment comes and you see it clear as day.
I invite you to join me in experiencing watercolor from the very beginning in my latest online Skillshare class. Sign up here!
Paris is one place I have yet to see… but trust me, it’s on the top of my list. I envision it to be the most romantic place on earth. Although, I know that the day I do find myself in Paris, it will be so much more than I ever imagined it to be.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been working with Skillshare to create easy to follow video tutorials that will give you an inside look into how I create my fashion illustrations start to finish (and add the likes of glitter, crystals, and sequins!).
Here’s a little video we made to give you an idea of what you’ll see in the class…
Check out the full description and sign up here. I’ll be directly involved in the class, and helping you as we go along beginning March 11-23. However, since this is an online class, you can get tickets at anytime… I just won’t be guiding you through it on a personal level after these dates- all the more reason to sign up now!
I’ll also be hosting 2 giveaways for the class members who participate:
1/ One student at random will receive a beautifully printed book of my illustrations and process photos from Artifact Uprising. (remember the book I made with them a while back?)
2/ The top two finished illustrations will each receive a set of three of my favorite illustration books from Laurence King Publishing:
Many of you have asked for fashion illustration book recommendations, and this is one I absolutely love. There are pages and pages of inspiration- from Bernard Blossac and Tom Keogh (favorites of mine), to David Downtown himself. It would be a dream to be included in a book like this someday…
