***Monday morning Kate Thompson’s brand new online course Fancy Lassies will begin***

Kate Thompson is back on our creative network! We are so fortunate to gather some of the most incredible artists around and we are honored to have Kate back and this time teaching how to make her whimsical girls!

Kate is one of the most extraordinary artists that I know and I have no doubt that you will leave this course with so many new ideas that you can incorporate into your own art!

Come and take a sneak peek into Kate’s new course…


Fancy Lassies with Kate Thompson |

In this class, we will be creating fanciful girls using watercolors, pastels, and acrylics. These girls are created in a somewhat whimsical way but with some understanding of a more realistic approach. There will be exercises in creating a more realistic portrait which we will then use and abstract to something more fanciful.

I will show you how to make little watercolor paper books where we will explore techniques, prints and color ways. This will be a wonderful record to rely on as we work on more finished pieces.

I will then guide you as you start working on your own girls. I do have templates to download for you to practice the painting techniques. I then demonstrate how to draw the girls that we will then transform into fanciful creatures with very different personalities.

I demonstrate how to draw a portrait using charcoal. I then layer the charcoal drawing with watercolors and white acrylic paint. We will then paint watercolor and acrylic roses to garnish her face.
