Course Description:

By themselves, lettering and watercoloring are two very lovely art forms. Put them together, and you have a dynamite combination that will create some truly stellar pieces.

In this class, I’ll be sharing how you can harness this skill to make some lovely lettering. First, I’ll run through a quick lettering refresher before touching on basic color theory. Then I’ll demonstrate how to control water and pigment to achieve different effects before jumping into showing you two very different lettering styles.

Finally, we’ll create three gorgeous lettering projects together, starting with a simple project and working our way to lettering with all the colors of the rainbow. By the time the course is over, you’ll have the skills to create a huge array of colors, forms, and styles that will leave you feeling like a lettering champ.

My review

I learned a lot in this lettering course. I know my lettering skills will take time, but with some of the techniques that I learned in this course to enhance my lettering, I will now have more reason to work on them. I usually complete each project several times before submitting my work. By doing this, I am able to work out any difficulties I have and am able to submit a better final project. I have enjoyed this platform and the courses so much. Thank you.
