    Jennifer brings your treasure to light. Meaningful illustrations come to life with watercolors.

    In this class, I will be highlighting the watercolor technique. I like watercolors because of their transparency and the surprises that arise. You can add colored pencils, fine liners, or wax crayons to give the painting texture where needed. Explore the possibilities, experiment, and have fun. Connect what you have learned with all kinds of inspirations. Have an open eye for the things that uplift you and help your illustration to more liveliness.

    Layering color intensity

    If you want to master watercolor, you will work layer by layer. I will explain how to slowly build up the color intensity. It's a good technique to add depth to your images.

    Different ways of planning white

    The existence of white in your watercolor painting is represented by the white paper. Which is why it is necessary to plan the white areas. Here are a few tips on how to do this in different ways.

    Color palettes

    Creating a collection of things that you like or are impressed by can help you at any time. If you like a picture you see because of its colors, look closely. See the balance of colors and let it inspire your project.



    Analyze compositions that appeal to you. Sometimes we don't even realize why the painting appeals to us. Look at what is in front of you and let it flow into your illustrations.
