New Class & Giveaway - Watercolor Pencils

Over the last few months, I have had so many requests, that I am very excited to finally announce that the hugely popular online class "Watercolor Pencils" is coming back.  This is the first class in the new "Water-Soluble Series" and launches on September 18th, 2014.

Watercolor pencils are a delightfully surprising and often underestimated medium. These luscious, creamy, little sticks of wonder have been around for eons.  Almost every artist at some point has tried their hand at using watercolor pencils.  For those that have worked with them, they already know that they are fun, versatile, no-mess wonders and a must have in every artists toolbox. 

In this 6-lesson online class, you will learn all about these beautiful little sticks of color and how to get the most from them.   

 It is a journey through the pencil box that will help you explore watercolor pencils in so many different ways.   Along the way you will learn about sketching, color, texture, and shading. We will draw with them, paint with them, and combine them with mixed media. You will be amazed at their ease, versatility, and effect.

This class ran as sold out e-book classes in 2011 and 2012, now it's back as a full blown online workshop with a host of video and PDF downloads that cover technique, exercises, inspiration, and hands on projects. 

If you have watercolor pencils as part of your art stash and really haven't made the most of them, then this class will help you discover how easy it is to create gorgeous art, keep a sketchbook, or art journal using watercolor pencils, and combine them with other media to create some glorious effects in your art and craft projects.  

My simple, narrative approach, clear, digestible instruction, and exciting hands on exercises and projects will help fill you with confidence and inspiration that will have you creating beautiful watercolor pencil art.

Over the coming week I will be showing you a series of projects that use watercolor pencil.  And to celebrate the launch of this new class, I am giving away one place on this class every day for the next five days. That's five chances to win a spot on "Watercolor Pencils"!
