Here’s the scoop on this FREE LESSON:
Watercolor for Beginners
Easy Way to Watercolor a Forest Scene
Using techniques of spatter, wet on wet, and masking, we’ll create a magical view of light coming through a forest. It’s loose and very “watercolor-y.” It’s fun!
You can learn from my demonstration, or you can participate. If you participate, you will need:
- Watercolor paint. Inexpensive paint like Crayola will work. The better quality the paint, the more vibrant your painting will be.
- Watercolor paint brush. I prefer you use one with a brush head about the size of an almond. But most any brush will do.
- Small piece of a new kitchen sponge. 1 ½” by 1 ½”. No sponge? A piece of paper towel will do.
- 9” x 6” or larger paper, heavier than bond paper (the paper that goes in a printer). If you have watercolor paper, use 140#. Multi-media paper for drawing with markers works. Or, even a manila file folder works for this.
- A cup or vessel for about 2 cups of water. Pick something you’re NOT going to use for food after this project. A clean large yoghurt tub or a soup can will do.
- Masking tape, painters’ tape, or artist tape, preferably 1” wide. (Scotch tape or packing tape WON’T work.)
- A couple of old clean rags to blot your brush. Note: the paint might stain these cloths.
- I’ll use a hair drier to speed things up. You may too, but it is not required.
Ages: 10 through adult. Taught in English.
