About This Class

A summery, cool stand of trees form the centerpiece for this watercolor landscape workshop. Join me as I take you through my process for creating the scene. I will cover my tools and set up, show detail on one of my main blending techniques and share insights on composition, foliage painting technique and steps used to build the scene from base washes to mid tones to final details.
