Watercolour Landscape Painting Demonstration.

I was able to make a new video today. Been meaning to for ages and finally got round to it. It's a speeded-up video which condenses the whole process down to about seven minutes. Hope you like it.

  1. Thank you so very much, John. Your video was a pleasure to watch. I always appreciate seeing how dark the pigment goes on wet, as compared to when it is dry.

  2. Thanks SATF. I know what you mean. It's something I forget. It's only when you see it in a time lapse video that you appreciate just how much they differ.

  4. Thank you so much ,John.This demo was really helpful for people like me, who struggle with landscapes :)I loved the way the trees emerged over the skyline.You are the master of this art!
    A few questions,though--Did you stretch your paper before painting or did you use heavy paper- I saw that there was no buckling at all inspite of all thoe washes.I am still trying to find the right paper and right method...

  6. Thankyou. Arti I just soak the 140lb paper for a couple of minutes first then paint my wet into wet then the more detailed parts once the sheen has gone. Hope that helps.

  7. Living in Edmonton too. I've only just started to repaint in my 47th year after I was put off from an art exam at secondary school. I'm not very confident and I'm on a tight budget so videos like this really do help with advice and inspiration. Thank you.
