What is it about fruit? It is so much fun to paint! Maybe it’s the cheery bright colours, the round plumpness of form…each piece is “sunshine and smiles” all wrapped up in a perfect package. It’s just so darn cute …especially when married with loose messy watercolours and scribbly graphite.

The cost for this class is $45 US.
This class is all about happy! You’ll learn how I create MY STYLE of watercolour, it’s all loose and “flowy”. Messy and carefree 🙂 Who needs rigid conformity and lines that are “supposed” to be coloured inside of….you won’t find that here!
And it’s not just watercolour….we’ll be scribbling and getting messy with our pencil too. Graphite is such a wonderful tool to add character and charm to your artwork. The more wobbly and wonky the lines the better. I’ll show you how 🙂
The five projects start off with a simple “lone mandarin” and get progressively more “full” of pieces of fruit. There is a simple bowl and a blue bottle to enhance our simple little still life’s.
You will watch the complete project’s from start to finish as I create these five watercolour fruity artworks 🙂
As a short little bonus video in this class I show you how you can seal your artwork and mount it onto a wooden cradle board.
Who is this class for?
This class is perfect for beginners to watercolour and those who want to learn how to use it in a loose freeing way. The class includes basic watercolour and simple drawing techniques. It is a work at your own pace class. You will gain access to around 3 hours of video in which I walk you through each step of the projects.
This is an open ended workshop with no expiration date. Plus all the videos are downloadable and yours to keep!
You will have access to the joint private FACEBOOK GROUP with others that are also taking my classes, to share your work and get feedback.
Toni is one of the best and most creative teachers that I have every had. Her instructions are clear, concise, well thought out and every instructional step allows you to grow as an artist. She is always so very, very positive with her feedback, which gives you the confidence to take more risks. I can honestly say that I have never had a better teacher and highly recommend taking her classes. – Erin F.
