NEW class inky blooms and a GIVEAWAY




Hello Friends! My next online class Inky Blooms goes live today and today I have a tiny peek and I am giving away 5 free spots in the class. Scroll to the bottom of this post for a chance to win!




INKY BLOOMS
$15

There is something so simple and beautiful about creating with ink. In this class we will use my favorite subject: flowers, to explore a variety of expressive techniques.Using brushes  we will experiment with creating dynamic and bold floral ink brush paintings.

This class is what I like to call a "micro class" it is structured into 1 LARGE lesson.

IMPORTANT-
All of my classes have unlimited access- once the class goes live you can create and access the class at any time and work at your own pace. There is no deadline or pressure to create.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SUPPLIES: This class like all of my classes, does NOT have a required supply list. Instead I will be sharing the supplies that I like to use and then give you a variety of options and inspiration to use supplies that work best for your process and your budget.

You can head on over to the shop HERE for all class details and registration!




ENTER TO WIN A FREE SPOT IN WATERCOLOR BLOOMS!

Leave me a comment
Tell me your favorite flower
I will randomly select 5 winners and announce them at the bottom of this post tomorrow! 

UPDATE WITH WINNERS!

Email me at alisaburke@gmail.com and I will get you access to the class!

What a lovely giveaway and a great class! I wouldn't say I have a favourite flower as such as I love them all from the simplest daisy. I currently though, love the last of the Passion flowers curling over the arbor and the orchids that sit in their pot next to my comfiest seat x

Karen G said...

The orchid is my favorite flower because my wedding bouquet was made with them. They were white with a little purple in the center. Love your artwork btw��❤️

flourgirl said...

Oh, do I have to pick just one? Poppy, rose, tulip, daisy. If I have to narrow it down: Poppy.

Mary W said...

I've always thought Lily of the Valley was my favorite but it has been over 50 years since I saw one that I don't know anymore. All flowers are beautiful in their own way but scented ones are my favorite. (Except simple daisies and sunflowers - they don't need scent to distract from their beauty.)

jabbott said...

Poppy x

ronee said...

Hey Alisa, I LOVE all flowers. To pick just one favorite is like picking your favorite child. If I had to say, my all time favorite would be the Hydrangea

Lily of the Valley

cm said...

I added your blog to my Feedly a couple months back and WOW! What amazing things I've discovered in doing so! Your colouring pages are works of art; your colouring skills are awe-inspiring (you've helped me to improve on water-colouring, which I find quite challenging...not a talent that comes easily to me); your tips and techniques are eye-opening; your product reviews/recommendations incredibly helpful. At the moment, I also have two of your recent post ideas flagged to do with my niece (6) and nephew (4): the ice-dyed dress (we'll do a t-shirt for my nephew) and the art with yarn, which will be a fun, fabulous giggly-mess of creativity! Thank you for the class opportunity|

Linda said...

I love giant peony blooms!

april dawn said...

Pansy!!! People use the word to denote weakness but the flower can be trampled, crushed, dried out, look dead, go through harsh winters, but it will always bloom again and will be stronger for it all.

Stephanie said...

Queen Ann's lace and hibiscus!! :)

Melwilyn said...

It's hard to choose only one flower ! But I'll go for peony.

Jim Serrett said...

Woodland Phlox – I call myself the reluctant Gardner, my wife keeps a incredible flower garden and I am always amazed by and drawn to the abstract beauty of it.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Randi said...

David Austin roses are a favorite. Thank you for your generosity!

Madonna Lila said...

Ok, seriously, the picture of the ink in your rinse glass is pretty awesome. The intensity of black & white watercolor caught my attention, it's pretty striking and sweet at the same time. My favorite flower is Siberian Iris, for the exact same reasons: in my garden it's the most intense pigment, the contrast is striking and it's super sweet as a cut flower in a vase too! Thanks for all the inspiration Alisa!

Michelle P said...

Oooh, I love me some Gerbera Daisies!!!! Your watercolor blooms class is one I've been eyeing up lately! Thank you for this opportunity, Alisa!

Monkey Mind said...

Favorite flower? That's a tough one as there are so many amazing flowers. Hmmmm, Dahlias are amazing for their geometry and variety, the giant blooms of Sunflowers make me smile, and tea roses are beautiful. But I like Cosmos for their ethereal quality and gorgeous color. So I guess Cosmos it is. For today.

angela hales said...

Hard to choose, I love to draw flowers because they just make me happy. But I do have 3 nieces with flower names so I get a lot of practice drawing theirs: lily, rose & violet (and for some reason Lilly's been requesting honeysuckle a lot lately in her drawings)

Char DeRouin said...

Roses - although all flowers are beautiful! Thanks, Alisa, for this class! xo
