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.

Supplies: (Affiliate links used)
- Watercolors (Paul Rubens) Ultramarine, Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, (Light red, English red or Indian red), Sap green, yellow ocher and Cobalt teal *All colors are in the 24 set except cobalt teal which is in the 48 set if you want to splurge (it’s a great deal if you want a lot of colors) I used a stick of Cobalt Teal from Daniel Smith on mine because I got my 24 set of paint before the 48 set came out.
- Paul Rubens CP 12″x16″-ish watercolor block (Turns out it is 100% cotton)
- Watercolor brushes
- Prismacolor pencils for final details
- Salt water or granulation medium
