Lesson 2: More Tools - From the wonderful watercolor brushes and effects (including real watercolor paper) to the pens and pencils. And at the end, you’ll join Caroline to paint an orange!
Lesson 3: The Color Palettes – Caroline will walk you through the different color palettes you can use, how to mix color and use color effectively as well as save your favorite colors and pick colors from the screen.
Lesson 4: Demystifying Layers – In this very easy to follow lesson you will learn how to build a simple painting using LAYERS and the benefits of using layers. You will create another painting of a flower and learn to fill shapes as well as paint them. With all that done, you are set to do your first complete painting in the final lesson.
Lesson 5: Importing Photos – In the final lesson, you’ll learn to import photos to use in tracing as well as having a reference copy available when you are painting, right beside your canvas.
