Learn Color With Jellyfish
Jellyfish come in a lot of different colors, interesting shapes and your choice of background - you're only limited by your palette.
Nothing teaches color better than hands on mixing. Everyone knows how to mix red, yellow and blue, and you can mix your own colors to paint this, or try some new ones - like orange, green and purple!
In this lesson, the new Qor sample set of six will be used. An entire extra lesson (video and handout) will give tips and info on how to mix colors like orange and purple for beautiful browns, plus tips on setting up and organizing your palette, testing color and how to get the most out of your paints.
If you're ready to learn about color, or just want to paint a fun and easy jellyfish - jump right in! The most beautiful colors in the world are waiting for you.
I'm a self taught artist and I love teaching!
My story is simple.
I showed a lot of talent as a child, but my parents discouraged art - a waste of time! I spent my adult life as a nurse and raised a family - pretty busy. I also kept painting.
I wanted my paintings to be realistic, but the watercolor teachers would roll their eyes and tell me, "That's not how you paint watercolors."
Despite the naysayers, I just kept going and taught myself how to paint realism, the way I wanted it, with watercolors. After years of practicing (and lots of bad paintings), I got really good.
I found that not only did I really enjoy teaching other people (and giving them the encouragement I never had), I continued to learn and improve my art through teaching others. It's a win-win!
And so, I set up this site (and my Patreon site) to encourage other people to give watercolor a try. I think it improves their life and that anyone lucky enough to be able to afford the materials and time to dabble in painting is blessed. Whether (or not) you ever turn into a master painter or just gain the admiration of your friends and family.
Watercolor is doable. The more people painting, the better the world will be. Give it a try today!
