Whimsical Watercolor Mini Class: Let’s Paint a Hot Air Balloon

Let’s paint a hot air balloon and create an oversized card project together! In the whimsical watercolor mini-class series, I’m sharing bite-sized art lessons in watercolor and other mediums like colored pencils, markers, gouache, and more.

The intention of this course series is to provide mini-class lessons packed with techniques that are easy to understand, replicate, and master. And, we’ll create a fun oversized card project together. At the end of the series, you’ll have 12 or more card projects that you handpainted.

In This First Mini Class, You Will Learn: 

  • How to paint loose roses in watercolor and create dreamy, washy-washy effects
  • What is gouache and how to create the “look” if you don’t own any? Hint: it’s opaque watercolor.
  • How to add simple details with pen and/or ink
  • Splatter effects
  • Wet into Wet and Wet into Dry Watercolor Techniques
  • To get comfortable with brushstrokes and brush dancing
  • To TRUST Yourself! You can do this!
