Course Description

Wild Blue Yonder will go live on March 19, 2018.

Learn to illustrate and watercolor a detailed scene filled with billowing clouds, bitty birds in flight, paper airplanes carrying top-secret messages, radiant sunshine, and dreamy rainbows.

Wild Blue Yonder by Danielle Donaldson

Using worksheets and handouts that compliment my videos, you’ll learn new techniques including:

  • Preparing versatile watercolor palettes in advance that are customized with the colors you love most.
  • Planning compositions in advance with thumbnail sketches
  • Painting large watercolor washes as backgrounds
  • Drawing and painting dimensional clouds, birds and paper airplanes – think shadows!
  • Painting, paper piecing, and sewing to correct inevitable mistakes and add dimension
  • Creating awesome rainbows with transitional washes
  • Adding tons of detail with pencil, ink and white paint
