In this watercolor class you will learn to paint beautiful, bright,luminous pears and are so real you could reach out and take a bite.

You will not only learn the “magic” of creating beautiful backgrounds but you will learn some tips and techniques of shading that will prove to be invaluable in all your watercolor paintings whether just in your journal or framed as a masterpiece. After this class you will not only be a “Pear-ologist” but you will have some new tricks up your art sleeve and will help you become the best watercolorist you can be.
Have Fun!


Only the supplies with the asterick are the ones you have to have. All other supplies are optional. 

* Must haves

Supplies that I will be using are in red

You might want to look at the “Supplies” video in the classroom  before ordering any supplies!


If any of these links don’t work you can always Google the supply and find sources for it.


*Watercolor Brush #8 Round-


Dream Catcher #8 Round

I highly recommend this brush. It’s the Cadillac of watercolor brushes. It is expensive but well worth it.


Utrecht #8 Round 6150—Very good brush for the price


Or go to your local art store and get one nice round #8  synthetic brush that has a good point. Don’t spend money on a really nice sable brush for this class. (not that you would anyway!) But you probably need to pay $15 on up for a good one.

 Burnt Orange

Mangenese Blue Hue

You can buy these colors in a watercolor stick if you prefer for $8.45 each.
