Introduction to watercolor florals online ZOOM workshop-8th April 2021
Hello, everyone. I’m Zakkiya Hamza, a watercolor artist, and designer based in Doha. I’ve taught over 25 in-person watercolor workshops, most of which have been received very well. Most of my workshops are beginner-friendly like this one and you will be able to take away information that you will likely not receive from the free tutorials on the interwebs. I’ll be happy to have you on-board in this “new” way of learning.
In this beginner-friendly online workshop via the application Zoom, you will learn the very basics of painting watercolor florals. You will start with the basics and then proceed to use the techniques taught to create leaves and individual flowers. Please note that floral compositions will not be taught in this class. You will be provided with a digital workbook or e-book that you can refer back to whenever required.
1. EXPLORING THE BASICS
We start off by exploring the most basic techniques in watercolor. Understanding the basics is vital in getting started with watercolor. The basic watercolor techniques will include blending, layering, and mark-making. Plus I’ll be showing you lots of tricks and tips to help with water control.
In this section, we will explore how leaves can be painted using simple strokes. The concept will be broken down into simple steps and you’ll be able to paint any kind of leaf with the techniques I explain. And you’ll be able to paint a variety of leaves too.
In this section, you’ll learn the basics of painting flowers, tips, and pointers to follow while painting loose florals. You’ll learn to approach any flower using the shape breakdown technique I use to make them as simple as possible.
The application “Zoom” must be installed on your preferred device. Basic materials consisting of watercolor paper, watercolor paints, and watercolor brushes along with 2 jars of water and a paper towel must be available on hand to follow along with the workshop. You do not need a specific brand of materials and you can use whatever you have in hand. Make sure you keep everything ready prior to the commencement of the workshop.
Please try to join in 10 minutes before the workshop time so that any technical difficulties can be taken care of before the start of the online watercolor workshop.
