Step-by-Step Guidance and Demonstration on Watercolour Techniques
This full step by step course video is in two hours. You will have unlimited lifetime access to it, please take your time to practice on your own step.
There always come some surprises when we walk on trails, some beautiful natural plants inspire us for the strength of lives, some people bring us good smiles and some scenes give us an imagination of story.
Here is a stone house showing out through trees. With a perspective structure and rich texture of stone, wood and even empty spaces, it provides a lot of possibilities for us to create an story around this inspiration.
From up front to far behind, the trail will lead us from surfaces of trees, earth, construction and figures to the fundamental atmosphere colours. I would like to guide you through this journey in watercolours, with enjoyable brush and colour mixing techniques.
Topics & techniques covered in this project:
Defining the textures and surface patterns for tree, earth and stone
Creating special features for bark of trees
Perspective form for house structure and stones
Applying appropriate brush strokes for stones
Distinction among the major trees and background trees
Highlighting figure in landscape painting
