“This was a really wonderful class! I feel like it helped me to understand how to start a landscape drawing, using the rule of thirds and defining the focal point of the picture. I liked using the pen first and adding watercolor overtop. You also had some great tips with pen lines and adding a little tint of red to capture the viewers eye. Thank you so much, I feel like I have learned so much!!”Shauna M.
“I highly recommend this class. Rosalie is an exceptional teacher with a fresh and encouraging style. She has laid out the lessons in a way that is enjoyable, easy to follow, and sets you up for success. You'll love this course.”Ann Y.
You'll need a pencil, eraser, sketchbook with watercolor paper (or loose watercolor paper), a jar of water, waterproof ink-pen, a couple sizes of watercolor brushes, and a set of watercolor paints. A complete in-depth supply guide is provided with this class.
This is an all-levels class. We cover the basics, but even experienced painters will learn some tips for quickly bringing a landscape watercolor sketch to life.
This class has two parts: PART 1 goes over the process for creating an ink & watercolor landscape painting from a reference photo. PART 2 takes students on a plein air art adventure as we learn how to paint a landscape from life.
