Are you interested in learning how to paint landscapes using watercolors? Have you already tried painting landscapes using this medium but find you need some help making your pictures look more believable and/or visually pleasing?
I'm currently producing a series of four YouTube videos in which I will be taking you through studies of individual elements that make up common landscapes. I will be sharing my personal tips and tricks to paint skies, blurry distant mountains, trees, water/water reflections, as well as smaller details like flowers, grass and rocks.
Here is the introduction to this series, which will be starting next Friday! I hope you'll gather your watercolor supplies and follow each week as I create these studies so that we can all get better at painting landscapes together.
The last video of the series will be a personal challenge for myself, as well as for you, as we will be creating a complete watercolor landscape using all the previously developed skills. I will be publishing participants' work here on my site, and mentioning you in a video! :)
Here are the dates in which the videos will be published, as well as the topics that will be covered on that particular day:
1. Friday, February 23: How to paint a watercolor sky, distant blurry mountains and water
2. Friday, March 2: How to paint different types of trees (creating tree studies)
3. Friday, March 9: How to paint smaller details (flowers, rocks, grass, etc.)
4. Friday, March 16: Painting a complete landscape using a reference picture
