More about this course

Hello and Welcome! In this class I'm going to show you how to paint Cinque Terre, Italy in watercolour. One of the things I struggled with as a beginner was learning how to loosen up my brushstrokes while preserving a sense of realism. I will show you a quick and simple process in simplifying details in a reference picture to turn this into a loose watercolour painting.

This class will help you loosen up as well as go though some essential wet-on-wet watercolour techniques when painting boats, water, reflections and buildings. This class is for beginners to intermediate learners.

You will need some watercolour paper, watercolour paints consisting of blue, yellow, red and green, a 3/4 inch, and number 6/12 flat brush, and a number 4 round brush. I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge with you, so enroll in this class and you'll be producing some simple and beautiful paintings in no time.
