In this class we will create faces and flowers in watercolors. I will have outlined templates for both the face and the flowers to work from. You have the option of drawing your own face but I want to make this class for all levels and focus on the watercolor techniques I use. We will be working on 300 lb hotpress watercolor paper.

The technique for painting the class will start with a charcoal underpainting using loose charcoal and a brush. We will then work the watercolors on top.
