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.

Nic e mix of techniques to practice
Steve is a wonderful teacher. I’ve been following his YouTube channel for the past week and learned so much. He puts so much thought and effort into his tutorials and reviews. Thanks for sharing so much great content Steve :)
I've followed Steve Mitchell's Mind of Watercolor videos on youtube for a very long time. His classes are always top quality and rich in content. Steve is professional in all ways, yet he is down-to-earth, and as easy to be with as a good friend. He teaches us how to get where we want to go with watercolours. He also teaches us how to work with where we are. He's been there, he understands what it is to fear that blank paper, to ruin a good start, to get stuck in mistakes and frustration. Steve shows us how to overcome our obstacles. And best of all, he lets us see his own wrong turns and un-happy accidents. Then he takes us through his process for working out what to do about it. Steve takes the "i-m" out of "impossible.". This is teaching at its best! I highly recommend Steve Mitchell's classes for artists of all skill levels, from total beginner to advanced.
