In this class, I will be teaching you how to apply colors wet on wet; what is the best ratio between water and paint when applying colors wet on wet; how to wet paper so you have the most control, but at the same time - you are still painting 'loose.
It's important to visualize where you are going to apply all the color, and this is when light and shadows become the most important - especially when you are painting water and sand. I will be teaching you how to plan this ahead, so you feel comfortable with wetting the paper, and to think of all the areas where (and why) you are going to apply certain colors, starting with undertones (clouds, sand), the lightest colors first.
In this class, you will find three exercises - how to paint water, sky, and birds.
I can't wait to share all the tips with you.
Hi, I’m your watercolor teacher!
After starting two online schools (first on Patreon and later on Teachable), I wanted to create a membership-based school with more detailed classes. Something a lot more affordable and with a broader choice of subjects.
Examples of some of my other seascapes.
Wet on wet vs wet on dry
When I first started painting with watercolors, I didn't know much about 'wet on wet, so I was painting everything 'wet on dry. The truth is, painting 'wet on wet is much easier once you learn the correct ratios between water and paint. You can divide every painting into sections, so you don't have to tackle all the objects at once.
When painting clouds, there are so many different techniques. In this class, I will be teaching you the more simple way, when everything is done 'wet on wet.
However, if you would like to learn how to add more dimension to your clouds, I have a course in this school about how to master different skies in watercolor.
Light and shadows
As with every painting, it's all about light and shadows, to create a nice balance. Whenever you apply colors to the water or sky, you always want to think of the lightest areas first.
No matter what object you are adding to your seascape, you want to think of composition in your painting. What may work in the reference image, may not necessarily work in your painting. I always try to think of how to bring out the main object to the surface. An example, if in the reference a seagull is very small - I will enlarge it in my painting.
