$64.99 CAD



We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world and it offers up so many incredible vistas to paint. In this class you will learn how to create a landscape using the French Wash technique. As you paint you will also learn how to create effective reflections in water and how to create rich, soft skies.

Class supply list is listed below. Supplies not included.

A note from Jess Rice: I am hosting a couple of free 1 hour online courses, for students who are thinking about taking a watercolour class from me, or just want a refresher on some basic watercolour skills.

We won’t actually be painting in this class but I will walk you through some beginner steps to prepare you for future classes. This will give you a good foundation to start with and get you started in the right direction. You will have a chance to ask me questions as well during the class.

In this class I will talk about:

  • What brushes to purchase and the difference between round, flat and angled brushes.
  • What paints to purchase, starting with a very basic palette and then adding more complex colours.
  • What palettes work best and why.
  • Working with artist grade paper vs. student grade paper and how to rip your watercolour paper into smaller sheets. I’ll also talk about sheets of paper, blocks of paper and what brands work best.
  • I will also demonstrate some very simple techniques to get you started including wet on wet, wet on dry and dry on dry and where each of these techniques would be used.
  • How I set my watercolour station up and what you will need to get started.

Please send me a note if you’d like more information about the FREE beginner’s class.
