In this class I'll share how I paint leaves with watercolor using different watercolor techniques and seven types of leaves as examples.
The skills I'll demonstrate include:
- mixing paint for a general palette using pan watercolor paints
- observing a subject and creating preliminary pencil sketches
- wet on wet washes
- wet on dry washes
- lifting paint with a damp brush
- layering paint
- mixing color on the page
- painting fine details
These skills can be used in many other watercolor applications.
The leaves I paint in this class are from the following plants:
- lipstick plant
- jade plant
