Beginner’s Watercolour for Landscapes is a seven-part workshop series that takes you from total watercolour beginner to feeling comfortable enough with the medium and techniques to paint original landscapes. Designed and taught by Laura Krieger (Elle Kay), this series will teach you the beauty of watercolour through exercises, demos, talks, and examples, then use your newfound skills and confidence to paint any landscape, real or imagined.
Preview the series with this Live Demo, where Laura showcases one landscape scene, painted several times differently. She’ll show you how to push what you can do with watercolour to produce stunning landscapes.
At the end of the series, a 3-hour Master Class is available where Laura guides you through designing and painting a complete landscape, reinforcing everything you learned in the series.
