Fun & Easy Snowman

Please join me for some watercolor fun!

Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, a self-taught watercolor and mixed-media artist who loves exploring art and sharing it with you!

Let’s paint a fun and easy watercolor snowman!

In this class for all levels, we will paint a fun and easy watercolor snowman in a loose, intuitive way. We will focus on layering color for depth, exploring light and shadow, adding snowy texture, and more.

I will share my simple, easy to follow process to create a happy little snowman, that you can use as a stand alone painting, or as a wonderful holiday greeting card.

I’ve broken this painting into 10 steps to make it easy for you to follow along and paint with me. Each step is short and simple.

At the end of each step, feel free to pause the video and finish that step in your watercolor painting. As always, we will wrap it up with a project using the skills and techniques we have learned in the class.

Please note, this class is also available to Premium Skillshare Members on the Skillshare platform.
