I’m always envious of illustrators that keep beautiful sketchbooks. (My “sketchbook” is a loose collection of papers bound together with a single binder clip.) Sara Boccaccini Meadows has made a habit of painting in hers, and the spreads go beyond your typical doodle; they are small paintings that feature lush landscapes and observations of the natural world. Now, Sara is sharing her wisdom with you through her new online class on Skillshare called Botanical Illustration: Paint a Colorful Garden with Watercolor and Gouache.
In 35 minutes, Sara will teach you how to paint “botanical scenes inspired by the real world.” You’ll go with her through the sketch phase to the final version, gaining insight into how she combines watercolor and gouache to create her eye-catching works.
Because this is an e-learning course, you can start anytime. Heck, you can learn in your pajamas! You’ll be happy you did. Maybe not painting in your PJs, but the whole taking initiative-to-try-something-new thing.
