In this class, we are going to layer watercolor, texture, and patterns to create these beautiful sampler pieces of art. I love experimenting with color and pattern and know you will love this too. This is such a fun way to experiment with colors and try out different mark-making techniques. I’m calling these samplers since they are reminiscent of vintage needlepoint samplers used to showcase color and needlepoint techniques.
We’ll start out in our sketchbooks to get started and create ourselves a small reference library of color and marks. Then we’ll move on to small striped samplers in our sketchbooks and finish off with a large sampler piece ready to frame.
This class is for you if:
- You love learning new techniques for your art
- You are interested in learning more about watercolors and making some fun samplers
- You love experimenting with art supplies
- You love watching how others approach their painting practice
Supplies: I encourage you to use the supplies you have on hand to do your projects. You do not have to purchase any specific supplies for this class. It is all about experimenting with the supplies you have and learning to let loose.
- Watercolor paper – I Iike cold press 140lb paper for my bigger sampler pieces and 110lb watercolor paper in my sketchbooks
- Various paintbrushes and mark making tools
- Watercolor paints
- Painters tape
