British watercolor artist Steven Cronin gives you another instalment of how to paint with confidence in watercolors. This time he chooses to paint a scene from Lake Buttermere in the Lake District. He is very specific with the tools he uses to compose his paintings and the kit used is as follows. The paper is 15″ x 11″ Fabriano watercolor paper. The brushes used are the large Ron Ranson hake and a number 3 rigger. My regular palette consists of 7 Cotman watercolors – Raw Sienna, Burnt Umber, Light Red, Ultramarine, Lemon Yellow, Payne’s Gray and Alizarin Crimson. I’m sure this video tutorial will not disappoint so grab your kit and paint along.
Favourite artist Wilson Bickford shows in detail how the aspiring watercolor artist can expect to achieve a realistic stunning blue sky combined with partial landscape and horizon line. He discusses the importance of keeping the paper wet to keep a softer edge to the clouds and parts of sky. He uses a selection of watercolor brushes and teaches the importance of blotting the brush with a kitchen towel to allow the artist to shape up certain areas of the sky. A very thorough tutorial with much to learn and hopefully improve your skills within the wonderful world of watercolor painting.

In this painting tutorial you will have the opportunity to see how a moody atmospheric landscape is painted in watercolors. This particular watercolor landscape painting demonstration features the mystical charm of Loch Eck in Scotland. The artist has used 130lb Fabriano watercolor paper measuring 15″ x 11″. The brushes which have been selected are the large Ron Ranson hake, 3/4″ flat and number 3 rigger. The watercolors used in this lesson are from a palette of Cotman watercolors; Raw Sienna, Burnt Umber, Light Red, Ultramarine, Lemon Yellow and Payne’s Gray. Reach for you brushes and just follow this well narrated video to discover the beauty of watercolors.
In this art video tutorial Dan Nelson teaches you some basic guidelines and rules in the approach to figure drawing. He talks about the basic proportions of the human body and begins by discussing how the human head is roughly one third by two thirds relatively speaking. From this he then tells how the average human body is seven heads tall so it is important to understand this before taking on you life drawing.
From watching the art tutorial you will see how Nelson uses the letter ‘n’ to refer to the seven regions of the body to make it easier for the beginner artist to remember the proportions whilst drawing the human figure.
This is really an educational beginner’s art video which with respect quite crudely addresses what is necessary to learn before going onto greater and more detailed drawings and paintings within life drawing.
