Watercolor on a Sketchbook: Paint a typical Tuscanian Landscape

Welcome to my second Skillshare class in which you will learn to paint a typical Tuscanian landscape using watercolors

This class is suited for everyone and I will guide you towards the completion of the painting step by step, carefully talking you through all the techniques and the little tips and tricks I use to get the best out of a painting.

In the first part of this class I will go over all the materials needed to complete the painting and together we’ll see how to create the initial sketch that you can use as a reference, you will also find it as a download in the resources section.
In the second part we dive right into action, painting the sky first, full of clouds, and shaping the cultivated hills where the village is located right after.
In the last part we will focus on the final details of the painting and the tufts of grass in the foreground.

With this class i hope to let you savor the Tuscan atmosphere and bring you a piece of this beautiful country. Are you ready? So, let’s get started! 

In the resources section you will find:

  • The photo of the initial sketch
  • My full palette. In the videos i tell you the exact colors i’m using
  • 3 photos for you to use as inspirations

How to Paint Easy Watercolor Seascapes - Daytime and Sunset

In this class you will learn to paint two watercolor seascapes. I will teach you how to paint the sky and the sea at different times of the day: daytime and sunset.

During the first few lessons I will go over the supplies needed and then I will show you the basic techniques you’re going to use later with helpful examples you can try out yourself to train.
After that you will apply the techniques you just learned to paint the seascapes along with me, step by step as I show you how to use the basics to create a wonderful painting.
Every seascape I paint is divided in 3 main lessons: the sky, the sea and the final details. This way I hope you will find easy and comfortable to follow the guidelines and finish the paintings.

You won’t need any starting skill or previous experience with watercolors: the class is suited for everyone!

What is Skillshare?

Skillshare is an online learning platform where the students subscribe (monthly or yearly) and get access to ALL the lessons posted there. It's an awesome place to learn (practically about everything, you're not boxed into watercolors, you will find whatever you want). If you subscribe through my link I get a bit of support from the Skillshare platform for bringing you in and you get 2 months of free trial of their premium membership.
Much like other platforms (Amazon Prime, Netflix etc..) you can try it for free and then just say "no" when the trial period expires and you won't have to subscribe again or pay any money. It's a great opportunity to watch my class, help me grow as a teacher and learn a lot.
