Watercolour - Walking in the Fall
When we meet the fall, it is the most colourful season. It is also the best time to learn the techniques to blend all warm and cool colours together, as well as the skill to create harmonized landscape painting in watercolour.
Including the three primary colours, we will also explore the warm primary and cool primary series. A full range colour wheel will be very useful to support this exploration. The way of laying the visible hues is simple, we will explore far beyond to build up an effective relationship between two, three and more colours in tree forms. This lesson will cover most of the challenges in handling with colours in landscapes with the study of layered application of watercolour, as well as the fundamental and dominant holding techniques among the complicated colour composition.
It is a game in colour, but it is fun. Let's rock into this autumn scene and enjoy the beautiful art journey.
