About This Class

264934a5

Hi everyone, and welcome to this class about painting watercolor landscapes inspired by the four seasons!

Watercolor is a great medium to paint landscapes because it allows you to create many different atmospheres with just a few colors. You can play with water and texture to capture the feel of a place and let watercolor do its magic. Every season is different and brings a specific mood, and if you used them as inspiration, you will never lack ideas.

In my previous classes, I talked about how to paint specific elements of a landscape, so today, we are going to focus on the atmosphere.

In this class, we are going to paint together 4 different landscapes from start to finish and each one will be inspired by a different season. I will show you how to paint the sky, how to create an abstract background, how to paint the moon and add stars, how to use salt to create some texture and I will also share a few tips along the way.

You will need only 8 colors to paint these landscapes so feel free to experiment with what you already have at home!
