Misty Forest With Ferns- Advanced Lesson

How to Adjust Color and Value For Depth In Landscapes

Landscapes are only hard, if you don't know all the secrets!

Misty Forest is similar to Sponging Trees (in the free lesson package) buts packs a ton more knowledge about creating depth in watercolor landscapes. Understanding the basics will improve every landscape you paint.

This beautiful scene is from the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, when the wildflowers and Trillium were overflowing the landscape.

In this lesson, you'll receive: an outline page to trace or draw, step by step written instructions, (with helpful information and tips on landscapes), a video demonstration showing every step in the process, and more.

And don't stop here! Visit Deb's album of photos from her photography workshop in the beautiful Great Smokey Mountain National Park for more subjects to try your new landscape knowledge on.

Guided practice is excellent practice, and with tips for creating depth and a little guided practice doing this painting, you'll be ready to take on the world.

Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher

My story is simple.

I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.

Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).

My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.

Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!

Happy Painting.
