Painting a dandelion, crashing waves and retaining white paper

Learn how to retain the white of the paper, paint the spray from waves and paint.  Bring a dandelion to life with a beautiful pallet of vibrant and harmonious watercolours.
Paint a mass of delicate seed parachutes which float off on the breeze and create a three-dimensional, luminous flower head full of natural beauty.
By using just four watercolours, hues are merged with one another, forming a range of harmonious shades. In this comprehensive guide I will demonstrate fundamental techniques and show you how to:

  • Mix colours
  • Paint a loose wash
  • Use wet-on-dry
  • Use masking fluid

    The lessons are designed to let you learn at your own pace, in your own time. All elements are provided to get you started, including:
  • Step-by-step videos demonstrating the complete project
  • Downloadable photograph of the dandelion
