Using just 4 watercolors you can make this great painting following my professional instructions in real time videos
Many years ago when I stated out painting in watercolours I would look with envy at this painting wishing “if only”and,by learning the same techniques shown here,gradually I became more adept with my brushes and paint and by practicing every day I was able to produce more professional looking paintings
In the course we will concentrate on a particular painting by JMW Turner (the painting in the course picture).
Venice, Looking East from the Guidecca, Sunrise, 1819
This is just one name for this piece because no one can agree where exactly in Venice this is!
The particular beauty of the painting makes it perfect as our reference and we only need to use 4 colours.
You can do this course as often as you like, I would say if you do it at least 3 times you will have your very own JMW Turner masterpiece.
We start by applying our washes and watching how they dry,we use a HAKE brush quite a lot,if you are not familiar with this brush you can watch the half hour free preview where I paint a full picture using only the HAKE,if this does not convince you on this brush nothing will.
When we have finished the background and foreground washes we will build up the middle ground,dont worry if this sounds like too much,many of my students have painted superb pictures by painting along with me.
The last thing we tackle is the boats at the front,we do this in a very impressionistic way which means it does not matter if we are accurate,it is all about the colors so come on in and give it a go,regards
