2021 Online Art Workshop: Learn how to create your best watercolor landscapes ever! Discover how easy it is to paint fantastic landscapes that are quick, loose, and a joy to create.


Learn how to create your best watercolor landscapes ever! Once you see how Linda's approach works, you will discover how easy it is to paint fantastic landscapes that are quick, loose, and a joy to create. Our workshop begins with an introduction to creating landscapes with negative painting techniques. We'll spend the first day doing quick, paint-along lessons that will teach you the basics. Each day includes live presentations, painting exercises, a full demonstration, personal painting time, Q&A, and a review. Once you have the knowledge to see the landscape as simple interlocking shapes and learn remarkable ways to create textures, you will be ready for our main projects, The Romantic Landscape and Big Sky Landscapes.

Subtle transitions of hues and the layering of lost and found edges capture the spirit of the romantic landscape. Discover how to interpret the soft layers of fields and meadows and build your paintings with a simple plan that captures the spirit of the gentle landscape from the ground up. Learn "Badger" brush handling techniques for applying textures to suggest blowing grasses and distant trees. You will learn how and where to use captured negatives and minimal hard edges to slowly bring your work into soft focus.

Create the magic of atmospheric skies using sweeping strokes and big brushes. Keep it fast and loose as you build your paintings following a simple plan that captures the feeling of a Big Sky landscape. Express the many moods of the sky as you learn techniques for flowing in the gradated colors of a clear day, building layers of billowing clouds, and conjuring the drama of an approaching storm.

This workshop is suitable for painters with some watercolor painting experience or intermediate painters and up.

This online painting class will be taught using the Zoom platform. Professionally recorded demonstration videos will be available on a private webpage, for enrolled students only, for 30 days following the workshop.
