Painting a cloudy winter sunrise scene in watercolor . Shows how to suggest different cloud layers in the sky by layering (glazing) in your painting. (There is no reference photo for this older project.) This would make a good postcard.
Super-simple and minimal supplies: a watersoluble pen, a wet brush and a postcard or sketchbook. This is basically a form of line-and-wash, but doesn’t seem to be taught or discussed much. My favorite super-lightweight sketching strategy.
An introduction to painting glass in watercolor, and a bit more practice with negative painting and soft-edged shadows to show “white” objects.
One approach to designing and planning a painting of your own, using a holiday postcard as an example. Come plan along with me!
What to do while you wait for me to hurry up and make a new Postcard Paint-Along? Try “stealing ideas” from a previous paint-along. Take the steps and techniques, change the colors and subject matter, and make something new! In this paint-along, we’ll use the techniques and steps from the Sunset Variations paint-along: https://youtu.be/XZFpFm-MA4k to create a completely different scene.
