About the Course

Module 1: Sketching

Creating atmospheric watercolors starts with the underlying sketch. I’ll teach you how to loosen up your sketch so that you don’t create a “paint by numbers” feel in your work. By using a suggestive drawing style you’ll create more realistic, artistic paintings. 

Module 2: Composition

Composition, including subject matter choice, is what sets the masters apart. We’ll cover how to choose appropriate subjects, the rule of thirds, the Golden Ratio, creating a focal point, using Notan studies and more. You’ll leave the lesson with a deeper understanding of how to elevate your art. 

Module 3: Pigment Control

This module focuses on creating an atmosphere through better pigment control. Using a monochromatic approach, I’ll help you understand how to lay down your painting in a way that creates instant cohesion and depth to your painting.
