Why this Class is Different

Create sellable graphics from start to finish

Not only will you have step-by-step instruction for painting your florals, you’ll have everything you need to sell them as a digital product, too. While many graphic designers remain in designer roles throughout their careers, I’ve also spent time as a production artist, preparing design files for Fortune 500 companies. In this course, I share all of the best practices from scanning, to resolution, enhancing, vectorization and organizing download folders for buyers. I’ve been successfully creating and selling digital designs for over 9 years and share my experience in product creation, pricing, where to sell and what to expect throughout this course.

Why I love selling digital watercolor florals

Unlike selling a single watercolor piece that takes time, materials and shipping, digital watercolor florals are created once, can be sold repeatedly with no additional effort and are delivered online instantly. Not only are you able to sell the florals themselves, but any stationery, logos or invitation templates you create with them in the future can be sold repeatedly, too. Hello, passive income!

Prerequisites

Access to Adobe Photoshop (CS3 or newer) is required to complete this course

While we *do* spend time painting florals, the majority of this course is spent digitizing, enhancing, removing backgrounds and creating bouquets, arrangements, wreaths and patterns within Photoshop.

A Desktop or Laptop Computer (Mac or PC)

Since we’ll be using the full version of Photoshop, an iPad won’t be sufficient to complete this course. You’ll need either a Mac or PC desktop or laptop to follow along.
