When you do something often becomes a habit, I never new that I loved so much painting with watercolours until I tried them again almos 3 years ago, now I can't stop painting! What if you come and try painting with me. Keep in mind is that painting loose florals aren't perfect, which is why they are so fun to create. Each time you attempt it, they will look different and teach you something in the process.⁣⁣My Watercolour Workshop will teach you everything you need to know about watercolour painting and we will practice the basics of watercolour, pulse and precision to be able to create a beautiful painting of a bouquet at the end of our class. ⁣⁣I hope to see you this Friday! ⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ #workshop #calgary #watercolour #yyc #yycclass #watercolourclass #calgaryart #yycart #paintingworkshop #yycliving #sketch # ...
