Rust can be Beautiful! Texture in Watercolor Sketchbook Sunday!

Hi friends! I am so excited to share this painting with you today because I had so much fun painting it!

I filmed and narrated the entire 2+ hour duration of this painting and you can find that tutorial in Critique Club. The tutorial is broken up into 6 smaller segments so you can easily take breaks and not lose your place. There are so many techniques in this painting that can be applied to other watercolor paintings as well. Critique Club is a monthly membership that costs $5 a month and you can cancel anytime. While you are a member you can access any of the past real-time lessons that are longer and more advanced to what I post on YouTube. In addition each month you get a creative prompt and you can upload up to two paintings you are currently working on for feedback on so you can grow and improve as an artist. It is my hope that this customized feedback, or critique, can help you become the best artist you can be! This is a gentle community of artists wanting to learn. Click here to learn more about Critique Club or enroll today!

Now for the Sketchbook Sunday Time Lapse!

  1. I am not an artist – but I love watching you create! I always learn a little about the coloring process. This, by far, is my favorite work of yours. The texture and colors of the rusty wall, and the rope – I recognize that little whitish rope, reminds of clothes line.
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge and creativity.

  3. My ah- ha from this tutorial was the idea of making up a saline solution to use as a granulation medium. Of course, I learn valuable painting techniques from every FC video but the tips are always something special. Thank you Lindsay for sharing.
