Essential Watercolour - Plein Air Painting
Watercolour is a perfect medium for painting out of doors, ideal for capturing the transient, atmospheric effects of the landscape. But where do you start? In this film, Paul guides you through his key techniques for handling the medium. He offers advice on choosing a subject, planning your composition and building a strategy for getting the best from an on-site painting. Studio lessons are put into practice with two plein air studies; a summer landscape featuring a sunlit cottage and trees followed by a coastal scene with the emphasis on sky, buildings and reflections. An award-winning artist and popular tutor, Paul hopes this film will inspire and encourage you to experience and enjoy the benefits of painting in the open air.
