Learn how to create your best watercolour landscapes ever! Negative painting isn’t hard, it’s just different! Once you see how this approach works, you will discover how easy it is to paint fantastic landscapes that are quick, loose and a joy to create.
Once you have the knowledge to see the landscape as simple interlocking shapes and learn some fun ways to create textures, you will be ready for our two main projects, The Romantic Landscape and Big Sky Landscapes.
Discover how to interpret the soft layers of fields and meadows and build your paintings with a simple plan that captures the spirit of the gentle landscape from the ground up.
Learn “Badger” brush handling techniques for applying textures to suggest blowing grasses and distant trees.
You will learn how and where to use captured negatives and minimal hard edges to slowly bring your work into soft focus.
Express the many moods of the sky as you learn techniques for flowing in the gradated colours of a clear day, building layers of billowing clouds and conjuring the drama of an approaching storm.
Each of your two days with Linda includes live Keynote presentations, paint - along exercises, a full video demonstration, personal painting time, live Q&A and a review.
