Hi friends! Today we are going to paint a lovely scene of a mountain, forest and lake in watercolor. I loosely based the painting on an image from The Artist Photo Reference: Landscapes book I bought last month. I love this book because there are so many photos of different lakes, mountains, trees and skies and you can adapt the photos to meet your needs. Unfortunately they are out of print so you just have to see what used bookstores ave for sale on Amazon. I was able to get all of the book in the series at an awesome price last month on Amazon. Good luck if you are hunting them down.
If you are a beginner I recommend you watch the video through once all the way before painting, then you can restart the video and pause as needed (or use the gear at the bottom of the player to slow down the video) so you can go at your own pace.
- Watercolor paint: Joiart *Colors used: Ultramarine, Rose (Quin. Rose), sap green, yellow ochre, burnt umber
- Brushes: Mimik (faux) Kolinsky #8 round, Mimik faux squirrel value set

- Ceramic palette: I have this one but consider this cute rose one too!
I hope you enjoyed this easy beginner tutorial! Painting does not need to be hard or complicated. Take a bit of time each day to practise and you will progress in no time! Happy crafting!
