Hi friends! Today you can paint on location during peak fall foliage without having to leave the comfort of your home!
Here is the photo I took where I painted.
Grab your supplies and paint with me! Please let me know if you would like more on location paint-alongs. I can try to get out a bit more before it gets too cold:)
- Portable Painter Palette
- Colors in my palette: New Gamboge, Hansa Yellow light (lemon), Pthalo Blue, Ultramarine, Quin. Rose, Pyrolle red, Yellow ochre, Transparent brown oxide (or burnt sienna), Diox Purple, Sap Green, *serpentine, *cobalt teal *=daniel smith watercolor stick, I do not use cobalt teal if dumping the used paint water outside out of environmental respect.

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.

I hope you enjoyed the on-location painting today! I sure did. Sometimes it’s hard to give ourselves permission to do something just for ourselves but it is so important to feed our creative side. It might be something as simple as making a cup of tea, lighting a candle and giving yourself an hour to paint or inviting a friend over for a crafty afternoon. That one is great because you might cancel on yourself but you wouldn’t a friend and it’s good for your friendships too! As someone who works from home I know how important is is to spend time with people and creative people are the best! I sincerely thank you for spending time with me today, it is because of you I decided to paint on location (it was too pretty out not to share it with my painty peeps!) so do me a favor and spend sometime doing something you love:) Happy painting!
