Paint a Watercolor Sunset
Inside this watercolor course
Get ready to dive into the sunset colors!
Indulge yourself in the world of smooth washes as we create smooth layers on the sky and water. In this course, you will use wet techniques to portray a realistic sky and nuances of reflections in the water.
You will witness the benefits of 100% cotton paper in creating smoothly mixed washes that avoid sharp connecting lines.
We spend a little extra time refreshing our memory on the rules of perspective. You will use a 1-point linear perspective to realistically paint a deck and an aerial perspective to show the depth of space. And so much more! Do not wait any longer, and join us in creating a stunning sunset!
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".
