Paint a Watercolor Loose Landscape

Watercolor Loose Landscape

Inside this watercolor course

Painting loose watercolor requires special skill and the ability to let go of control.

While the impressionistic style might seem easy, lots of people struggle with the “letting go” part. In this course, you will find out how to allow your paint to move freely while controlling what’s going on in your painting on a larger scale.

You will select your color palette for bright and clean landscape painting, create vibrant layers in wet technique, play with tonal contrasts while turning a complicated reference photo into a simplified painting. And making it look complicated!

Course level: Intermediate

It is meant for artists who already know basic watercolor techniques and understand color mixing principles.

However, this course is available for beginners too if you are up for a challenge. Every step is demonstrated and explained!

Quality Video & Sound

We use professional equipment in a studio to record our videos. The sound is crisp, the image is clear and you will never miss a detail! Watch from any device from anywhere in the world.

Easy To Follow Lessons

Every course has a clear structure: from art tools to a color palette to the first layer. Every stroke is demonstrated from 2 angles and every technique is explained. And if you have questions you can always ask us directly.

Strong Theoretical Basis

No guess-work and intuitive painting. Our lessons are based on theory and academic knowledge which give students the ability to paint with confidence. You will not only know the "how" but also "the why".
