landscape painting class

 



Here are a few photos from a very fun day teaching watercolour landscape painting techniques in Wanaka, New Zealand. Students worked on 2 different scenes, painting along with me. And they worked very hard!

Skills covered ...

  •  the rules of aerial (atmospheric) perspective
  • painting different skies
  • how to paint snow, mountains, trees, water and reflections
  • working wet-in-wet and wet-on-dry

It was a full and fun day, and the students results were wonderful.

My next landscape painting class will probably be later in the year. Join my mailing list if you'd like to be notified of the dates.

zoom painting class - august 2020



Another wonderful Zoom class on 2 August, with 4 students joining me to paint a seascape from the Archway Islands at Wharariki Beach at the top of the South Island of New Zealand.

It's amazing what everyone achieved in just 3 hours. And, as you can see, I was pretty darn chuffed.

Next Zoom class the first weekend (or so) of September. Maximum 10 students and those on my mailing list get first dibs, so make sure you sign up at www.walden.co.nz. I'm already looking forward to it :-)
