What this watercolour class covers

We’ll start with a look at colour mixing, to discover how to create rich greens, and then paint all the Christmas botanical elements individually including:

  • Fir branches
  • Ivy leaves
  • Holly and berries
  • Poinsettia plants

We’ll go through each element in real time as I talk you through my process, with camera close-ups so you can see exactly how to create the pieces.

The final project

Finally, we’ll combine these individual elements into a stylish festive watecolor wreath in reds and greens. Paint along with me in real time to create a lush, full wreath as I take you through my tips for composition in wreath watercolour paintings.

You’ll learn tips and tricks to create beautiful festive watercolour paintings, perfect as gifts or cards for loved ones.

Or if you’d just like to get yourself in the holiday spirit, why not put on a Christmas playlist, grab your watercolour paints and have fun doing something creative!
