Learn to illustrate insects and plants in watercolor and collect them in your own journal

A course by Berta Llonch

Discover the joys of painting in a style that gives you total freedom and fluidity, drawing inspiration from everything around you. For visual artist and illustrator Berta Llonch, watercolor is the technique that truly allows her to be experimental, while nature is a never-ending source of ideas. She particularly loves painting insects because of their beautiful array of colors.

In this course, she teaches you how to create a naturalist journal made up of your own watercolor designs. She accompanies you in the study and analysis of your chosen insects and plants and helps you to artistically represent all the information on each page. If you want to learn more with Berta, check out her other course: Marine Universe Illustration in Watercolor.
