Paint Landscapes in Watercolor Part 1
What you'll learn
- Paint landscapes in a loose and easy style
- You will need some watercolor paints, brushes and paper. I use a small number of flat and round brushes of various sizes.
- I use: ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, cadmium red, alizarin crimson, lemon yellow, yellow ochre and burnt sienna.
This course will show you step by step how to paint quick and easy landscapes that really capture the atmosphere of a scene. The course is divided into four sections covering skies, backgrounds, foregrounds and trees. You can work through the course section by section, as each one builds on the one before, and you can then use it as a reference tool for the future. Each video comes with an accompanying pdf which shows you step by step how to paint the various elements.
If you are a complete beginner in painting landscapes in watercolor, then this course is for you. And if you already paint landscapes, but you want to loosen up a bit and become more expressive, then this course will help you to do that.
So join now and come with me on an adventure that may just change the way you paint forever!
Who this course is for:
- This course is for beginners and also for anyone who wants to loosen up in their style of painting.
I have taught painting for many years, both in adult education classes and also over the internet. Through my online courses I have taught thousands of people to paint since 2005. I have lead a number of painting holidays in the UK and overseas, write regularly for Leisure Painter magazine in the UK, and for a short time I was an instructor with Derwent Pencils. For five years I worked in ceramics, painting large tiled wall murals to commission.
I am originally from England, but now live in southern Spain with my lovely wife and two dogs.
My interest in painting goes back to my childhood, and I have learned throughout my life the skills and ideas that have kept me in employment and which I now hope to pass on to you. I love working in watercolors and gouache, and also in oils and acrylics. Each of these requires a different way of working, but I always aim to keep my paintings lively and fresh. I always want to convey something of the heart to anyone looking at my paintings.
The exercises and painting projects in my courses have all been thoroughly tested over time and proved to work well, and I am constantly amazed at the speed at which students improve. I hope you enjoy learning with me!
