About This Class

Are you brand new to watercolour painting?  Or maybe you have never had any formal techniques explained to you?  Are you inspired by the the beautiful colours of the sky? Watercolour Basics, Washes and Skyscapes, is perfect for you! We will cover three important types of washes that are used in most approaches to watercolour painting. Have fun playing with colours as we learn about flat washes, wet on wet (mixed) washes, and graded washes.  Each segment will cover a wash method and is followed by and quick and easy project covering three different skyscapes that will show you how to use each wash in an actual painting.  Let’s get started!

I really enjoyed the class: - loved the challenges that we need to confront in the exercises - really appreciated that the videos do not fast forward but record in real time the whole process - I liked that we are shown the original pictures used for inspiration as it provides a way to compare and understand better the artistic process. Would definitely recommend!
