You will learn to create a wet in wet background for your painting. We will work fast and mix colors on the paper. We will be working quickly before the paint dries. Make sure you are comfortable with the practice session before moving onto the original painting.

Before painting your trees, let's do a few practice trees. In this section I will show you how to draw a few different options and then we will paint them in creating some shadows.

Here are some recent reviews from  ART STUDENTS:


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.

~Cherly M.

★★★★★ "ENJOYED"

"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!!"  

~Kathleen F.

★★★★★ "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."
