October is Landscape Month at Watercolor Painting (we are soon going to be dropping the name Beebly and going back to just Watercolor Painting like before) and what better way to celebrate than by diving into different aspects of the topic?
In the Vineyard Landscape Tutorial we covered last week William Dunn teaches us how to simplify a painting and how to translate a photo onto the paper. This week I am highlighting a challenging topic: the watery landscapes. But don’t worry. I found you a tutorial that is beginner-friendly as it builds on the skills we learned earlier.
In this tutorial, Vinita Pappas, an experienced landscape painter and creativity coach, covers not only translating the painting from a photo to your painting. She also takes some liberties with the original image, omitting some items altogether and adding or modifying others. She covers one of the most interesting items in landscape painting - watery reflections.
Another unique thing about this tutorial is that Vinita covers the story. You see without a story the painting might look strange or disjointed. Unless you feel into what is going on in the story of the painting your figures might look stiff or out of place.
With Vinita’s expert guidance, you'll learn how to make all the elements of your painting work together.
