Description

If you are a beginner watercolor painter ...This course is for you - if you want to take your work from drab to fab.

Your course shows you step-by-step how to paint watercolors from dark to light ... a dazzling technique common to oil painting ... yet amazing results can be achieved in watercolor ... even for beginners.

You can find this course under lifestyle, arts and crafts or beginner watercolor painting.

Included are 1.6 hours or 89 minutes of video instruction to guide you through this painting. I also address unspoken mental hurdles that hamper beginning watercolor painters from reaching their full potential. Text lectures serve to emphasize important points you won't want to miss.

Your course includes over 35 lectures in bite size segments so you can absorb the information effortlessly.

Of course if you get distracted while watching the videos ... you can always rewind and start over ... one of the major Udemy course positives.

The actual painting took about 1 hour to paint. You most likely have all the colors and brushes needed. Not to worry - you will see exactly how the colors are prepared for the painting and the brushes used are clearly shown and described in the videos.

Your course is structured to walk you from blank paper to finished masterpiece in easy stages.

Handling your brush ... something advanced painters just do without thinking to achieve their amazing results ... is addressed in a separate bonus video - to show you just what is holding you back from the results you seek.
