Learn to Paint Glass in Watercolor
It’s easier than you think!
There’s a reason Soon Warren’s workshop, Vibrant Watercolor Techniques: Painting Glass is getting 5-star reviews. Several reasons, in fact, but they all boil down to this: great instruction on a great subject: painting glass in watercolor.
Soon brings some of her favorite techniques for watercolor to you with easy instruction, and the subject is delicious: painting a bowl full of cherries. But while that might conjure up images of Santa for the folks gearing up for Christmas next month (next month, really??!!!), these berries conjure up the sweet and tart taste of an early summer day.
