I have chosen a wide variety of subjects to be able to teach watercolor techniques, nuances and effects.

Because its Christmas season, I included the first two lessons in that theme. I have painted two christmas cards together in real time so you could also accomplish two projects together.

I do advice drawing out all the seven projects at one go and then painting them.

The next absolutely wonderful genre is of coloured glass shadows. This project may look difficult but once you follow my instructions as given in the video it will be a wonderful experience for you. You may get hooked on painting glass subjects.

The next is the interesting texture of Foil. I have taught you how to simply paint this metallic effect on a foil Balloon. I had painted this when I hit the 1 K mark on Insta. It was a celebration for me when I started out.

My fifth subject is an object that combines both coloured glass and metal. The  Iranian Filligri glass bottle is a mesmerising subject to paint.  It's detailed but enjoyable. Good Luck!

My art journey can never be complete without food. I have painted the spicy and tangy fruit salad called Rujak on a banana leaf to get the freshness.

The last project is the rice box woven out of banana leaves.

Do contact me on instagram or here itself for any queries.

Have the time of your life painting.
