How to Paint Moving Water in Watercolor

Learn How to Paint Moving Water in Watercolor, keep it simple and most of all fun. I know this is very different then my usual style, but today I thought it would be nice to show you another technique



Here I will be using a # 20 Wash Mottler and a #8 round blend brush and most of you know how much I love my Arches paper  but here for this technique I used 300 CP Fabriano watercolor paper. Colors are French Ultramarine Blue, Winsor Blue, Perm Sap Green and Indian yellow.



Enjoy and Have FUN!!

Boats on the Water PRNSA

We just had a magical weekend workshop painting Boats on the Water, we did over twelve paintings, ranging in size from 4x6 to 1/2 sheet, covering a wide variety of techniques from value studies, simplifying an image, tighter detailed work to moody more dramatic among others. 
Our workshop was held at the Historic Life Boat Station at Chimney Rock in the Point Reyes National Seashore and for a special treat we were serenaded by female and young Elephant seals bantering and posturing for each other.
