Beginner friendly landscape painting: Morning Field
This video is a two-part demonstration by artist Vinita Pappas as she paints a beautiful early morning scene on location. Watch as she starts with a thumbnail sketch to plan the composition and values of her painting. Then, she does some color studies to determine the colors she wants to use, which she keeps as a reference next to her painting. Throughout the video, Vinita provides tips on how to mix different greens, including how to use Chinese white to get pastel colors. She works slowly, filling in the passageway with a variety of greens, creating subtle variations in the process. Whether you're an experienced watercolor artist or just starting out, this video is a great resource for practicing these techniques while painting an early morning landscape with watercolor.
