Watercolor Tutorial On A Colorful Amusement Park

This beautiful watercolor tutorial is an interpretation of a live scene at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in California. An award-winning artist William Dunn takes you through his process of simplifying and reimaging the scene step-by-step. At the same time, he shares his expertise on equipment, composition, and technique. He uses high-quality Fabriano 140-pound cold press paper and a palette of top-notch Holbein, Windsor Newton, Daniel Smith, and Senelier watercolor paints. Bill's favorite pencil, the Graph Gear 1000, allows for the precise drawing of big shapes first, which he emphasizes is crucial to ensure correct proportions. He also shares his tips for softening up the watercolor paints with a spray bottle and using artist' tape to create a clean, white border around the painting when finished. Bill's charming personality and smooth approach make this video a must-watch for any watercolor enthusiast looking to take their skills to the next level.
