My name is Nia and I will be your teacher for today's class. This class will be one out of a series of a whimsical Strawberry Dessert Collection. For this class, we will be painting a strawberry swiss roll with the format of a paint along. I will be providing the outline of the illustration that students may trace and paint along to the lessons provided.
In my previous class I went over the subject of painting strawberries without reference and that was so much fun, and because I get requests on more food illustrations, I decided to turn this into a collection or a series where I paint strawberry desserts. I also feel that these types of desserts suit a loose watercolour style more. Which is why I've compiled this class today.
Within the series, I will be including similar elements within the painting and also using very similar if not the same colour palettes. So, at the same time students get to familiarize their selves with similar techniques and colour mixes with a limited palette throughout different paintings.
Even though I go through the steps one by one, in my lessons, I would still encourage students to watch through the class once, especially if you've never taken any my classes before, just so you get a fair idea on the steps that I'm going to take, as I paint. So, when you do paint along, you know what's going to come next and you won't be rushed. And I would also suggest to pause in between steps, if you ever need a bit extra time to finish parts of the painting.
This class is geared towards students who has a bit of experience with watercolours. So, I will set this as an intermediate level, but if you're new to watercolours, and you would like to give this a go, then I'd encourage you to try it out, and see if you can because there are no restrictions to painting as long as you have fun!
