About This Class

In this class, I will guide you through my process for painting realistic wood in watercolour.


We will start by covering how to mix browns and then move on to a number of techniques and styles that we can use to create the texture in the wood. We will then paint three different planks of wood: oak, pine and a darker weathered walnut piece. 

This class is the second in my series of how to create texture in watercolour and I hope you will enjoy painting these beautiful pieces of wood with me! Not only are they relaxing and fun, they will allow you to practice a variety of techniques and they form the basis of painting a variety of interesting subjects like doors, birdhouses and more!
