Learning Project (update) + get 2 months FREE (SkillShare)

I was a little bit busy finishing assignments, but I kept working on my learning project.

I tried writing with watercolour twice: here and here. I enjoyed it, but I knew it would be a good idea to learn some watercolour techniques. :)

I found Keren Duchan’s class on Watercolor Fundamentals: Water Control and Shape, on SkillShare.

To watch the class, you need to be a SkillShare member. If you don’t have a membership, you can get 2 months FREE by clicking here. (This is how I took all the SkillShare classes in the last two months!)

After watching her class, I completed all the steps Keren proposed: step 1, step 2, and step 3; and I became addicted to one of her suggested practices, “curving lines on to the paper”:

After practising a little bit with watercolour, I wrote the word that Coralee suggested, shine. I have three more of the suggested words to write, but every time I think about my learning project, practising these curves is what I want to do! It is so relaxing!

I went from hand lettering to watercolour in less than three months. I have learned a lot about brush pens and papers. Now, I want to explore real brushes and colours. I have a feeling of what I will be doing this holiday season! :)

Just a quick note: I also highly recommend watching “Misfit Watercolor Tips for Beginners” (15 videos) on YouTube:

Now it is your turn, #eci831 classmates. How is your learning project going? Have you explored new paths?
