What Should I Paint? Why Not Fix Bad Scenery?

William Dunn shares his expertise in transforming a boring photograph of a boatyard into a beautiful watercolor painting. Watch as William guides you through the process of selecting the right elements to include and what to omit.

You'll learn how to sketch and compose the image, paying attention to details such as lines, mass, and foliage.
