PAINTING SUNSETS IN WATERCOLOUR – LIVE COURSE
Watching the sun set changing the colours of a landscape into a soft warm scene is magical. It often looks like a painting, so it’s natural that artists are drawn to sunsets as a subject. However, capturing the soft diffused light is not always straightforward and can cause watercolour painters frustration when they put brush to paper.
This live course on Studio aims to help you become a proficient sunset painter by exploring the methods that Jason has found work both outdoors – working directly from nature – and in the studio.
The aim of the course is to inspire you to make your own sunset paintings with watercolour
This course would suit a relative beginner, and the more experienced painter who is looking to tune their painting skills.
