When I first started using Watercolour in 1980 I was inspired to copy the great artists such as Constable, Quinton and others. I couldn’t get on with oil or acrylic so turned my hand at watercolour.
As I had never gone to art school I just went with my instincts and had fun!
Because I tried to copy the great artists, the techniques I developed were completely unique and unlike any other watercolour pictures I saw.
I remained self taught, learnt as I went along and what you’ll see in this course is a result of years of learning through mistakes and finding what worked.
You’ll also see techniques never before attempted with watercolour (as far as I know). My watercolour pictures, even though they’re “impressionistic”, have a sense of realism about them.
In this course I’ll give you an outline drawing so that you can print this straight to watercolour paper or trace it using a carbon. I’ll also show you the materials I use in my watercolour work.
Then we’ll get started with the paintings which are split into “easy to digest” parts.
With this course you will learn to paint “Scotney Castle”, a stunning place in Kent, England.
After learning how to paint the landscape you will also be shown how to enhance your watercolour with Pastel Pencils! You will see how to make your pictures even more vibrant, colourful and stunning.
