Watercolour Workshop: Rainy Day In Wasdale

Workshop Duration: 44 Minutes 28 Seconds

This has to be probably one of the lake districts most iconic landscapes. It has been photographed and painted countless times and crops up in virtually every magazine, website or book even remotely linked to the lake district. 

Which is  why you should definitely have a go at painting it but why go the usual route and paint it with the predictable pretty blue sky.  After all this is the lake district - it rains here a lot! An awful lot actually!

So that is why in this workshop I am going to show you some fantastic techniques to paint not only stormy skies & majestic mountains but also some creative ways to portray the famous lake district weather.  

Come to think of it you could actually apply the same techniques to painting any part of the U.K  😂🤣

Changing the weather is just one way that you can add a unique twist to a scene that has been painted to death and make it your own! 

Here's how you do that in style!
