How to paint boats and water with watercolour paints

This is my latest watercolour painting demonstration for relatively new watercolour artists. It covers various watercolour painting techniques such as wet on wet and wet on dry as well as dry brush.

Subjects such as the drawing of simple boats and perspective are also covered.

The location of this scene is Pittwater a beautiful Sydney, Australia, coastal suburb and is based on a photo I took early one morning.

The painting is only about 7″ x 5″ but for the more experienced artists could certainly be painted larger – however for the beginner watercolourist I recommend sticking to this smaller dimension.

This watercolour painting demonstration can be found on my Painting With Watercolour site.
