Description

This Beach Landscape themed Watercolor Line and Wash Essentials course is designed for beginners with a desire to learn the essentials of Line and Wash Watercolor Painting. There is a beach theme to this class, however, the skills you will learn can be applied to all other watercolor landscapes.

By the end of this class, you will have the confidence and skills to understand how to paint any beach landscape scene in half an hour or less!

This course is designed for you to follow and paint alongside the demonstrations. It is encouraged for you to do so, as this will quickly strengthen your watercolor techniques by providing ample opportunities for practice. Each demonstration sketch is simple and tailored towards beginners. Draw these prior to painting.

I take a different approach from other instructors and make a conscious effort to demonstrate every technique I discuss in the context of a small painting/sketch. So, in addition of 19 full-length demonstrations, there are also 10+ smaller demonstrations highlighting techniques such as sketching, wet-in-wet in the context of painting clouds, water, land and other beach landscape components.

In this class, I will show you the FUN and EASY way to enter into the world of watercolors, and paint along to over 20 simple, yet beautiful Beach Landscape paintings.

This comprehensive class contains over 20 landscape painting demonstrations! These are based on various beach landscape compositions from around the world. I will walk you through how to complete each painting step by step as you follow along!

In this Watercolor Painting Line and Wash Essentials: Beach Landscapes course, I will cover basics such as:

  • Materials - what paints, paper, brushes and pens you will need.

  • The difference between different kinds of watercolor paper, and practical demonstrations showing comparisons of paper performance.

  • A crucial series of 6 lessons on understanding 'values' and color - including practical exercises and demonstrations for you to follow along to.

  • Understanding light sources and how to paint realistic shadows.

  • How to sketch a subject easily by simplifying a landscape into basic shapes, and using a combination of loose and accurate drawing styles.

  • Hands-on lessons on essential watercolor techniques such as wet-in-wet and wet-on-dry, dry brush and paint 'flicking'.

  • How to paint clouds, water and land.
