Spring Country Road in Watercolor
Tips and Techniques for Simplifying and Painting Road Scenes
Painting a spring country road in watercolor - your art is going places!
Simplify your road scenes to get the best of your travels. Start with a quick study to decide what you like and don't like about the scene, then jump in for a successful painting.
Learn how to conquer those problem areas where the grass meets the road, how to push areas of the landscape back with value and color, and use a limited palette for professional looking results.
This lesson does use sponging for part of the trees, so the sponging basics video is also included as a bonus.
Extra reference photos are available if you want to add a car, a motorcycle or even a horse and buggy to your street scene.
The backroads in Lancaster, Pennsylvania are always interesting, so learn the basics and helpful tips to take your travels to the next level.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson.
My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.
I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.
I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!
Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.
