Learn Watercolor Silhouettes with Sunrise Landscape
Silhouettes are easy and beautiful.
Watercolor silhouettes are one of the easiest ways to get a recognizable subject and beautiful colors. Whether you want a landscape, wildlife or your grand kids, just trace the outline and follow the steps for a beautiful silhouette. (The image below is the second demonstration in the video.)
In this lesson, I show the same scene, done two ways.
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!
