Christmas watercolor painting how to paint easy step by step
With the festive season fast approaching I thought it would be nice to get into the spirit of things by offering this watercolor painting of my local town, Colwyn Bay in North Wales modified into a Chocolate box watercolor Christmas scene. With over 2 hours of video I will guide you through the drawing, masking and watercolor painting so you will achieve a beautiful watercolor painting which you can hang proudly on your wall over the Christmas period or give as a gift, you could also get it printed as your family Christmas card this year! For those of you with a bit more experience you could use an old photograph of your own high street as the background and, following my instruction on masking out the snowy bits, use my drawing template for the foreground, great idea for gifts this Christmas.I have edited out the drying times so this is quite an intense tutorial at 2 hours so it would be a good idea to watch the course through first and make sure you have plenty of time set aside to do each section.I have kept the color pallet to a minimum (see the free preview video “tools required”) and you will need just 3 brushes plus some old brushes for the masking fluid (more below).This watercolor painting relies heavily on masking fluid so if you can buy an old rigger brush and an old quarter inch flat brush from a jumble sale or charity shop, this is better than ruining your good brushes with the masking fluid. You will also need either an old fan brush or a toothbrush to apply the masking fluid using the “splatter” technique described in detail in the tutorial. If you are not happy with your sketching skills I have provided a detailed template and instructions on how to use trace down paper. see you soon DavidArt is such a beautiful way to express yourself and as a watercolor artist for over 30 years I can not urge you enough to give painting in watercolors a try,I never get bored with the effects of the colors on my paper,I still learn new techniques in my work every time I paint something, it is such a free and easy medium and it is well worth the time and effort you may invest. To paint a watercolor picture is to escape into your own little world where nothing else matters and all your problems and worries can be forgotten, at least for a little while. To give your own watercolor painting as a gift could not be more rewarding,I never get bored with the expression on the face of a friend or family member when I present them with an original watercolor painting which I have painted specially for them. The medium of watercolor, for me, is the ultimate medium because even as a complete beginner you can achieve many effects using techniques which sometimes you are taught and sometimes you learn by complete accident which we call “happy accidents”,such as when one color runs into another color and creates water marks or bleached paper, this is why sometimes I sit and watch the painting paint itself in front of my very eyes. Of course now and then it does not work out as I wanted it to but all I have lost is a little bit of paint pigment,a piece of watercolor paper and a little time so I put that piece of paper to one side and start again! Too many people have a go at painting with watercolors and think that they have to produce a perfect painting every time and they overwork the piece, desperate to get a finished painting to hang on their wall and of course they end up with a mess, get dispirited and give up announcing that they will never be an artist and so never paint again.I would like to show these people the hundreds of watercolor paintings that didn’t work out for me because without making mistakes you can’t improve.I keep all my paintings good and bad and I look at the failures quite often, in these failed paintings there is quite often a part of the painting that I really like and I try to remember which technique, which colors I used, which brush made a particular mark on the paper so I can use these same techniques in my future watercolor paintings. If I was stranded on a desert island, my watercolor kit would be the first thing I would wish for.
