ABOUT THIS CLASS
In this one hour class you will be using watercolour and pen and will learn to combine loose brush strokes with dynamic lines creating beautiful florals.
The repetitive brush strokes and lines used to create the simple shapes of flowers can be a great way to relax and enjoy watercolour medium. You will be surprised to see promising results right from the start!
