This gorgeous shot popped up in my feed the other day, created by none other than the wildly talented Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls, I think a lot of people only know her as a calligrapher but she is a brilliant artist as well! Of course this made me want to try my hand at watercolor, I’ve been wanting to for some time I do have a nice set that I got a few holiday’s ago. I had been meaning to sign-up for a local class, but seriously when will I find a watercolor class that I can take either at 7:30 a.m. or 10p.m.? I found one! Yao Cheng, watercolor artist is now teaching a very comprehensive watercolor class at Creative Bug.  It’s very detailed, filled with tons of little tips + tricks. I have perused many a book and even did a bit of Googling and this class feels very accesible. I just started watching so I haven’t had a chance to begin a project, but I now feel like it’s possible to give it a go. What about you?  Have you ever tried watercolors? Any advice?  Have you taken this class yet? Creative Bug is now a very affordable $4.95/mo. but you can also get a 2 week free trial which gives you plenty of time to take many of their classes, in a try before you buy sort of way.

P.S. Love the lettering on this photo and want to learn how to do that yourself? Maybelle teaches an on-line calligraphy class here.
