Watercolour Workshop: Craggy Towers

Workshop Duration: 47 Minutes 09 Seconds

Around the U.K we have our fair share of beautiful beaches but in my mind the best & most dramatic coastlines and the ones that coincidentally are great to paint are the rocky coastlines.

Sheer cliffs, towering sea stacks & jagged rocks this lesson gives you a technique that will allow you to paint them all! What's more today's lesson is a masterclass in how you can paint an incredibly complicated subject very quickly and simply without losing any of it's impact.

This technique in this lesson is one of those that you will either get straight away or one that may take you a little practice to master. Either way have fun with it as it is an extremely versatile technique that will have your imagination running riot with the number of applications it can have!  I rarely produce a painting these days without using this technique somewhere.

It's not just that it is incredibly effective but it is the fact that it lets you paint certain things that would have taken you hours before in minutes and although this lesson is just under an hour people will think the resulting painting took you weeks!
