Turbo-Charge Your Skillset
Stop labouring and start loving watercolour flowers
Tight, detailed watercolours work well in some circumstances but, in textile design, the looser look is more popular with clients and customers.
See how you can effortlessly evoke the feel of a flower with simple strokes and certain brushes.
You'll create four different flowers in this course: poppies, delphiniums, peonies and a more generic bloom.
Plan and execute your final floral motifs, ready for designing.
See how we plan a watercolour floral fabric design in the studio.
From references, to using mood boards, to choosing your flowers, you will complete your hand-painted motifs, ready to be designed in Photoshop.
Set up your studio space for successful painting sessions.
Inside the Bonus Lessons module, you'll discover tips for setting up a creative space to invoke your best work.
Assess both your table set up and the environment around you to increase your proficiency, productivity and creativity!
