Learn to paint a mushroom in this art class preview with artist Lene Myhre (@lenemyhreart). She’ll show you how to create texture and depth by using watercolour and coloured pencils. You’ll see how she gets white without using white paint. 

Topics Covered:

  • Using wet-on-dry for light washes
  • Dropping in more colour for deeper values
  • Outlining contour with watercolour
  • Using coloured pencils for finishing details

Here is the reference image and outline sketch if you want to woak along with Lene.
