Project Description

A sunset at the lake

The lesson is an easy landscape where you learn basic skills like a multicolour wash. You practice the wash in the sky then repeat it for the lake. Remember to watch my video on skinny lines in my 'Materials' watercolour course before you paint the tree.    Don't worry if your scene is not exactly like mine.  No watercolour is ever the same. That is what is wonderful about watercolour.  The variations are great.  This scene is a favorite of my students and it never fails. Upload your version to share when you are done.
