Have you scrolled through Instagram or Pinterest admiring all of the floral watercolor paintings while desiring to create something similar to ones you’ve seen but felt intimidated?
I know that feeling all too well. I used to think (was trained to think) that watercolor mastery was far too difficult and beyond my skill set. But I have since learned that that is simply untrue.
Anyone can learn to paint in watercolor.
More importantly you can learn how to paint watercolor flowers step-by-step without feeling intimidated.
If you don’t know by now, I’ve been relearning and improving my art skills by watching YouTube tutorials, reading library books, and taking a bunch of classes on Skillshare.
Who is Irina Trzaskos?
One of my favorite Skillshare teachers is Irina Trzaskos.
Irina is an artist and illustrator from the Eastern European country of Moldova who now resides in Connecticut in the US.
She creates on-trend classes for those who want to build up their art and illustration portfolio. But your goal doesn’t have to involve building a portfolio. Her teaching style is approachable, and she works at a pace that makes it easy to follow for those who are just starting out.
Since we are in the brink of spring, I thought it appropriate to highlight Irina’s floral-based classes, but she offers a pretty wide range of classes, including a couple that cover the basics of watercolor painting in general.
Here are some of her floral classes that will help you paint watercolor flowers step-by-step for spring:
Irina’s approach is to take you step-by-step from sourcing a reference image, to creating a color palette, and then paining from light to dark before adding details.
She seems to have a really kind soul, so I hope you enjoy learning from her.
At the time of this post, Irina has at least 24 classes loaded onto Skillshare. You can click on any of the links above and then click on her name to see her profile that displays all of her classes.
How Does Skillshare Work?
Skillshare is a membership-based learning platform. Teachers of various skill levels and backgrounds share their skills in the form of a project-based class.
If you aren’t already a member, you can test out premium classes on the platform FREE for two months with no obligation. They also have a free membership option for you to take a limited selection of classes offered for free by instructors.
But with your free premium trial membership, you will have access to both free an premium classes. Watch premium classes, learn, post projects, and participate in discussions as much or little as you would like.
The links to Irina’s classes above give you access to this promotion as well. You can enroll in ANY class – you are not restricted in any way.
