Hello and Welcome! In this class I'm going to show you how to paint 8 different boat landscapes 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.
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 surrounding objects. 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 flat brush, and a number 4 round brush. I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge with you, so join me in this class and you'll be producing some simple and beautiful paintings in no time!
For the class project, referring to my completed paintings or the attached photos below as a reference, lightly sketch in the outline(s) of the landscape you would like to paint. Feel free to change the position of the boats or add in additional elements such as tree branches.
Using the tips and techniques shown in this class, create your own paintings for one or more of the scenes demonstrated. If you're feeling adventurous, try finding your own reference picture and use the tips and techniques to create your own unique painting.
Upload your creations under projects! If you have any questions, let me know in the discussion/project and I will get back to you.
