Course Description

Join Lexi Grenzer for her first course here at the Jeanne Oliver Creative Network! Lexi shares her love of nature, animals and her unique approach to watercolor.

Meet Fawn, Dink, Daffy and Babe…every animal has a story,
thoughts, daydreams, and interests….

Starting with photos of these beautiful animals you will begin a journey that develops and expand
your images to beautiful watercolor painting pieces.

This course will cover different sketching techniques that will help you capture each animal in drawing and painting, and leverage your personal skills no matter your level of experience from beginner to expert.

Along the way, you will not only learn how to paint with watercolor, but also how to build your palette to capture nature’s best colors, new color mixing techniques and how to seal your paintings. Each class will focus on a different animal and a different approach to watercolor. By the end, you’ll be creating beautiful watercolor animal paintings of your own.
