I LOVE LEAVES! The Triangle (or Wedge) Brush has become my favorite tool for graceful leaves, and in this class we are creating wonderful borders, patterns and designs using these forms and the vibrant colors of autumn. You will learn how to achieve a wide variety of graceful leaf shapes through a series of exercises, exploring the feel and technique used to create these shapes. We will then use these shapes in a variety of ways, in borders, wreaths, patterns, with pointed pen silhouettes, with bright watercolors and dramatic mica pigments. Learning how to paint the sunny black-eyed susan will finish
