Take your watercolour paper and tape it off into sections. This will create our series of landscapes.
Find some photos of landscapes you find pleasing. You can choose several or just one that we can modify into a series. Sometimes cropping an image helps to simplify your painting.
Draw a few details in pencil for your landscapes.
Using just a few colours of watercolour, paint your landscape scenes. Focus on the dark and light areas. Do not worry about small details just look at the big shapes.
This is a great exercise for beginners and kids.
If using just one photo try altering where the horizon line is in each painting. Maybe one on a diagonal, one up high, one down low, etc.
Try doing a few different sets of these mini landscapes.
When finished remove tape and cut into 4 individual paintings. You can now display these on a painted canvas or piece of wood. I also like to buy frames that allow for multiple photos and frame my landscape collections.
