Hi friends! Last week while I was on vacation to my favorite secluded spot I took a photo at sunset. I shared it on Instagram and asked if anyone would be interested in a tutorial when I got back home and many of you were! Here is the painting:
And here is the photo:
This is an easy sunset to paint and you only need 3 colors! They are pretty common colors you probably have if you ever painted in watercolor before. Grab your supplies and let’s paint!
Supplies (affiliate links used)
- Watercolor paints *I had Davinci in my Palette: Any brand is fine tho:) Cool Red (Alizarin Crimson or Permanent rose or Quin Rose or Red Rose Deep), Cool Blue (Pthalo Blue or Pthalo Turquoise or Prussian blue), Cool to neutral yellow (Hansa yellow light or Cad yellow light or Lemon)
- Watercolor paper: I used Strathmore windpower (but it’s overpriced on amazon) Try Arches instead, it’s better and cheaper.

I have really enjoyed seeing my students progress in this course and hearing their awesome feedback, Here are what a few of my students had to say about Watercolor Landscape Workshop:
Lindsay, I have taken classes in acrylics, watercolor, and even some in oils, all over the country. Your classes are by far the very best!! I enjoy how thoroughly and patiently you explain every step. I have had no formal training in any of these areas, so I really do appreciate that I can always be successful while having fun with your tutorials!! Thank you so much for sharing your talents as an artist and as a teacher!
Hi Lindsay! For the first time, taking your class my clouds look like CLOUDS! They are not perfect but I’m loving your instructions. Especially the use of color. Great techniques and using the correct pigments together make a huge difference. Thank you! Can’t wait to progress along with the landscapes. Also I wanted to add that I am learning so much from you! Like for example how to watch the video and then allow myself to flow and work quickly! Not to overthink! And I love it! You are an awesome teacher of good technique! Thank you for sharing your skills!
Very excited about this Watercolor Landscape Class. I LOVE your classes and free tutorials!! So fun continuing to learn about watercolor. You are the best teacher and so carefully explain techniques that a beginner can easily follow. These paintings are beautiful!
I enjoyed all of these it helps to understand an order to how to do things Also the mixing and having the colors limited. I started water coloring about 3 years ago I think and have thoroughly enjoyed doing things but I want to include the beautiful world around me and thought this would help. I think it will thank you so much. You are a terrific instructor and I follow u on you tube.
