Just finished a watercolor lesson in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where I did the demonstration shown here. As I paint each stage I add tips and techniques that I have learned over the years. Many of the tips go beyond just paint techniques. Everything from subject selection, composition, importance of values and drawing.
During the lesson I painted the sky, water and beach then focused on the palm tree. Then I added bicycle and the figures going into the water. This is a fun scene to paint and a common one along the waters-edge.
A video of how to paint a palm tree similar to the one above will be out in a few days on my YouTube channel. It will be around 10 minutes long from start to finish.
I will feature a blog post when I have uploaded the new video so stay tuned!
