Seascape Basics in Watercolor

Painting, Scrubbing (Toothbrush) and Scraping (Rocks)

Seascape Basics for Watercolor

Painting water works so well with watercolor. Use your favorite blues and greens to wash on color, step by step, to build a beautiful seascape.

The video shows how to mask and spatter for realistic waves, but you could always paint around the wave and spatter with white at the end for those sparkling drops around the edges.

Rocks are done by scraping. This takes a little practice but will give even beginners realistic rocks.

Trace the outline page onto your watercolor paper and follow along step by step with video and/or written instructions for a watercolor seascape.

Also, Learn how to paint the best far away sea gulls, along with the best place to put them.

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.
