New class on folk art illustration: Paint symmetrical florals in three ways with gouache

by | October 22, 2018 | Creativity, Gouache, Illustration, Online course, Watercolor | 0 comments

I'm happy to announce yet another class that explores painting florals with gouache!

In this new class, we’re going to dive into folk art. Folk art is present in many cultures, and it’s usually applied to every day items such as pottery or textiles to add a decorative effect. The colors in folk art are bright and joyful and the motifs are usually stylized florals and quite often they have symmetry.

We’ll explore:
- what makes folk art florals unique
- how you can explore the painting technique for yourself with a few simple steps
- different floral shapes
- working with gouache paint
- how to create a symmetrical folk art design

I’ll show you typical color palettes and florals used in folk art and in the end you’ll create your own symmetrical folk art design.

I hope you’ll join me in this class about painting symmetrical folk art designs. Here's just a little peek at the kind of artwork we're going to create in this class:

See you in class 🌸🌿🌸
