abandoned truck

 

In this lesson we will paint this wonderful rusty truck, abandoned in a tussle of rampant weeds. I love painting rusty things and I'm going to show you lots of tips and tricks for painting it. We'll also paint a cloudy sky, distant mountains and trees and, of course, the flowers and weeds in the foreground. You'll learn lots of skills along the way - wet on wet painting, softening edges, creating interesting shadows, how to use table salt for texture and much, much more. I break the painting into lots of small parts, so that each step is not very daunting and before you know it you'll have a lovely painting.

five different watercolour skies

 

In this lesson we will paint five different watercolour skies...
- summer sky with puffy clouds
- stormy sky
- cirrus sky
- sunrise
- night sky with milky way.
I'll teach you lots of tips and tricks and give you some rules to follow so that you skies will look realistic with a lovely sense of depth. Skies are a wonderful way to practice painting watercolour - they teach you all about timing (which is so important in painting in watercolours) and about pigment and water control. They're super fun to paint and only take 10 to 15 minutes to complete - so you can paint them again and again, gaining a lot of skills along the way.
