Our Learning Track For Beginners includes lessons on the basic techniques and how to use them in a painting. The good news is there are only a few techniques to learn! They will do everything you need in a watercolor painting. Learning, and getting good at them will help you make progress very quickly!
Color In Watercolor
This section is actually divided into four sections to help the learning process. Following them in order helps learning since they tend to build on one another.
Value, Form and Value Composition
This Learning Track is also divided into sections. Learn the basics of value, how it works to show light and form and the basics of value composition.
Light and Form
Many exceptional paintings have light as the subject. A simple formula will work to help you catch light and form, but is conceptually a bit difficult. This Learning track will guide you through.
Linear perspective is a system that will help you place everything in your landscape and seascape paintings properly and show space and distance at the same time. The basics are easy – find them in this learning track.
