BEGINNER WATERCOLOR COURSE - Learn to Paint this Maine Lupine Scene
Have you ever wanted to take up watercolors, but found most classes are too heavy and academic? These classes are similar to a Paint Night but we use watercolors. The classes are Easy, and no basic knowledge of watercolors are needed. You can usually finish your first painting under 2 hours.
This course is simple and minimal materials are needed to start painting today. Use any watercolors or brushes you have on hand, but I'll give you my favorite supplies and a PDF list to go by.
The course is broken down into small easy steps and I'll paint along with you. If you have questions as you go along please feel free to send me a private message or ask openly on the discussion board.
Not for you? No problem.

|Section 1: Start Here|
Hello my name is Kellie Chasse and welcome to my watercolor lupine watercolor painting class. I hope you enjoy the class and please remember you can ask questions or provide feedback in the discussion board.
I will go over the list of materials you need in order to complete this watercolor painting. Most of the items you can find online through your favorite retailers.
This lesson goes over how to begin drawing your lupines to get ready for your painting.
Ready to start painting the sky? In this lesson I will show you how to get your watercolor sky painted.
The next step is to do your background. Remember you can ask me questions if you get stuck in the discussion panel.
Painting our watercolor trees is next.
This lesson focuses on how to paint the sand in our watercolor piece.
Ready to paint the grass? We will go over adding grass to your painting in this lesson.
We will be using Gouache to layer in the under painting of your Lupine flowers. If you do not have gouache, you may use any white watercolor paints (use little water and make it as thick as possible).
Another option is to skip the white paint and choose a very dark shade of purple instead for your flowers. You will need a shade deeper/darker than your sky/water in order to cover.
I will go over some tricks on how to make your watercolor flowers look great.
Time for our final touches that will make our watercolor painting complete. Please feel free to take a picture of your completed work in our discussion board for this one.

Here are some recent reviews from ART STUDENTS:
★★★★★ "EASY TO FOLLOW"
I have been a Bob Ross certified instructor for 26 years and I have taught in various venues. Kelly is very clear in her instructions and she makes it easy to follow what she is doing. The class is simple enough for beginners and yet she gives the student plenty of room for creating a little on their own. The instruction on the supplies was also clear and easy to follow.
"I enjoyed doing this this painting. I am new to watercolor. Was able to follow, having to go back occasionally. Will probably do this painting several times just for the practice. I contacted the Kellie Chasse sight because of interest in alcohol oil painting. So will be an active student for awhile to come. Thank you for a great beginning!!"
★★★★★ "BIG HELP"
"Because everything was explained so simply, and Kellie's painting in real time was a very big help. I intend to take more of her courses in the future."
