How to Paint Watercolor Landscapes with Colin Bradley
- Watercolor Paper (I use smooth watercolor paper which is available on our store).
- Variety of Brushes (optional very fine brushes such as 0, 00 and even 000 which I use from time to time.)
- Watercolor Paints (I use Winsor and Newton Cotman watercolour pans and palette but you can use any you like)
- Hardboard backing board (for taping your work to)
- Brown sticky tape!
- Kitchen roll
- Water container
- Graphite pencils & sharpener - optional if drawing free hand
When I first started using Watercolour in 1980 I was inspired to copy the great artists such as Constable, Quinton and others. I couldn’t get on with oil or acrylic so turned my hand at watercolour.
As I had never gone to art school I just went with my instincts and had fun!
Because I tried to copy the great artists, the techniques I developed were completely unique and unlike any other watercolour pictures I saw.
I remained self taught, learnt as I went along and what you’ll see in this course is a result of years of learning through mistakes and finding what worked.
You’ll also see techniques never before attempted with watercolour (as far as I know). My watercolour pictures, even though they’re “impressionistic”, have a sense of realism about them.
In this course I’ll give you an outline drawing so that you can print this straight to watercolour paper or trace it using a carbon. I’ll also show you the materials I use in my watercolour work.
Then we’ll get started with the paintings which are split into “easy to digest” parts.
In this course you'll learn to paint a sky, water, trees, buildings and more.
I hope you enjoy learning my watercolour techniques, once you are finished, please do share your artwork via the Q & A section or message us using Udemy's messaging tools.

- Students wishing to try a new approach to watercolor
- Artists coming from other mediums wishing to learn watercolor techniques
