Six Watercolor Painting Projects For Beginners
What you'll learn
- Watercolor painting techniques
- Blending paint wet-in-wet
- Mixing paint colors
- Painting a variety of subjects
- An interest in learning how to use watercolor paint
If you feel stuck with watercolor painting then this is the course for you. In this class I'll take you through six watercolor paintings designed to help you improve your watercolor skills through practice.
As we go along I will give you tips and advice on color mixing, blending colors wet-in-wet, how to start and build a watercolor painting, creating textures, how to mix black and how to add realistic looking shadows.
The lessons are designed for you to paint as you watch and listen so I can talk you through each stage of the painting. Each painting tutorial builds on the one before it, starting from the most simple and moving to more complex subjects.
This course is suitable for people with basic watercolor experience, or for those with no experience at all if you are willing to dive right in and give it a go! If you have worked with watercolor before you may like to choose which painting you start with. If you are a beginner I recommend starting from the first painting and working through to the last painting.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner art students interested in learning how to paint
Hi, I'm Emily, I'm an artist and an art teacher. After finishing a Masters of Art & Design I returned to the simple joy of putting pencil to paper and just drawing. Since then drawing has become my passion as both an expressive art form and an enjoyable and mindful practice. In 2017, after 7 years of teaching art at university level I started my own school, The Pencil Room, where I teach drawing and painting classes and workshops. From here I developed The Pencil Room Online, to share my classes in a suitable format for online learning.
My approach to teaching drawing is to give my students the skills to draw anything they choose, rather than teaching the steps to drawing just one type of subject. My focus is on changing the way you look at what you see so that you perceive it in a way that can be translated onto paper. Once you can do this, you can draw anything with time and practice.
I love the simplicity of drawing and I value doodling from the imagination as much as realistic drawing. Art doesn't need to be serious, it can be simple and playful. Making art can be fun, challenging and therapeutic and it can change the way you see the world.
