Do you ever wish you could paint realistic trees and grass in watercolour?
And do you wonder what technique to use to capture these important elements of a landscape in all their glory?
Usually, I paint small subjects larger-than-life. Sometimes though, I like to mix things up and do things the other way around, scaling down bigger subjects to fit my paper.
If you’re only used to scaling-up your subjects, scaling-down is a really fun challenge.
And the good news is that you don’t need to learn a different technique for this.
In this video I show you that my wet-on-dry watercolour method can be just as effective when painting a large subject much smaller – like this little landscape.
Watch the video to find out how to paint this tree and grass with plenty of detail so as to achieve a realistic-looking result.
I also have a video showing you how to tackle the sky, so why not try putting these techniques into practice and painting your own landscape this weekend?
Have you used my wet-into-dry method for painting trees and grass? How did you get on?
