Watercolor Painting A Historical Spanish Colonial Building

William Dunn takes you on a journey to Southern California's San Juan Capistrano Mission. Using his expert skills and knowledge, he will show you how to create a masterpiece step by step. William starts with a small block of high-quality Fluid 100 paper, which he recommends as an affordable option for artists. He then works on two paintings - the first in black and white, to get a feel for the values and the second, a larger piece in color. Throughout the video, William shares his techniques and tips for using the right pencils, tape, and even choosing the right composition for your art piece. William's keen eye for detail is apparent in the way he shortens the palm trees and brings them down to create a dramatic effect. He also shows you how to create a border around the image using tape, giving it a nice finish. With his artistic vision and expertise, William shares valuable insights on composition, explaining how to avoid placing objects in the center and instead creating an L shape that creates an effective composition.
