Floral Gouache Pumpkin
Paint along beside me as we create a darling, one-of-a-kind pumpkin! This video will provide you with all the education behind using gouache on ceramic as well as on other surfaces. If you elect not to purchase the ceramic pumpkin set, that's completely fine, and you can absolutely use the material covered to paint on paper. During our time together, we cover roses, cluster flowers, leaves, and basic composition. All the materials I use for this class will be sent along in a PDF. Once purchased, the video is yours to watch over and over again!
Staging, Photographing and Editing Guide
We're all familiar with the old adage "A picture is worth a thousand words," however, it goes beyond that; as far as social media goes, pictures ARE the words. I learned fairly early on that unless I took the time to present my work in a way that captured the distracted scroller's attention, no one was ever going to listen to what I had to say. The pictures couldn't just be good - they needed to be GREAT. Pictures are bait; they are what lure the viewer forward,pique their interest, make them want to know MORE. That "more" is what leads to brand awareness. And as people become able to rely on the quality content you provide, they also become genuinely devoted to supporting that content. I've seen it. I've lived it. It's how I turned my hobby into a thriving business. I spent months figuring out how to do all of the above. It was an enormous investment of time, but well worth it in the end. And what I've put together in this class are all best tips, strategies, secrets and best practices for presenting your work to the world. I'll take you through step-step edits through my favorite apps and prove you don't need a fancy camera or spacious studio to capture gorgeous images. I've included video and written examples/instructions so that you'll have this information in both forms, some being visual learners, others needing text to process. Here's the truth: people know when you believe in the value of your work. They can see it. They can even feel it. The internet and social media is saturated with beautifully curated content. This is simply the framework. It is ground zero. The success of your craft starts with your photography. It is the handshake that leads to the deeper conversations. You have one impression to make and it deserves to be done the right way. Your WORK deserves this investment. You've come this far, honed your skills, found your niche, and now . . . it's time to elevate that work and show people that you have something only YOU can offer. It's time! ***please note that while the education in this class in universal to all students, technology changes and we cannot guarantee the quality of the photos if you are working with an old model. We suggest an iPhone 7 or above to ensure best results, or a phone model with equivalent capabilities*** If you have any questions prior to purchasing the class, please reach out to Cara@RosalieGwenPaperie.com
Loose Watercolor Roses
Roses - the queen of flowers. For many, roses continue to be one of the most challenging flowers to paint, something with which I can totally relate, having spent the better part of a year teaching myself how to paint roses. In this hour-long class we will dive deep into my signature style loose roses, and uncover all the mystery and magic behind creating beautiful flowers through the simplicity of common shapes. Secret: it's not magic! It's purely about build up muscle memory and learning to FEEL the movement in your hands by getting OUT of your head. We begin with a beginner rose, moving into an intermediate rose, and ending with our advanced rose. 3 roses, all of which are yours to tinker with and explore. This lesson is so much more about painting; it's about discovering what kind of artist you are, what story YOU want to tell with your art, about letting go and trusting your instincts, and a pledge to put in the HARD time it takes to become a master of anything. We will also explore how to create bleeds through gauging the paper for moistness and exercising proper timing. Also included, a guide showing you step by step how I create all three roses as well as drill maneuvers which I strongly recommend you practice each day to build up your muscle memory.
