Online Card Class, Watercolor for Cardmakers – Intermediate

Watercolor Practice Pages

I have taken many classes by Online Card Classes and enjoy them very much, but the one I am currently enrolled in, Watercolor for Cardmakers – Intermediate, is simply excellent.  Although I have tried many of these techniques and know a lot of the “rules,” the main teacher, Dawn Woleslagle, explains everything in such a way that I have not struggled so much.  With her clear and concise instructions, and lots more practice, hopefully I can hone my skills more than a little.

On days 1 and 2 Dawn went over the basics of washes and brushstrokes, but then she showed us how to apply them into cardmaking with creative backgrounds and creating simple flowers by using only a round brush.

Day 2, Brushstrokes, freehand flowers

On Day 3 we took negative painting up a notch with lost and found edges, and although this was my first attempt I was really happy with the way the hearts seem to jump out of the background.

I am working on my homework for Day 5 and can’t wait to see what she has in store for Day 6.
