Watercolour - The Old House
Bring Up A Sense of History for the Old House
An old house always provides an imagination space for us to create a story around it. The colour, texture, content and three dimensional form are just part of the techniques we can achieve through learning process. There are much more than these, the atmosphere, sense of history and surroundings are another part of life which we can create through our will.
Perspective is an interesting topic to be covered in this project. I would like to conduct this art journey from a initial composition to the end of harmony. Follow me step-by-step, you will be able to manage a variety distinctive brush techniques for different objects showing here. This course will help you to approach the calm and peace of travelling in watercolour.
Through this project, a construction won't be a nightmare any more. You will be able to handle both man-made form and natural form with confidence, and reach a harmonized freedom in a strict shaped project.
Topics & techniques covered in this series:
Composing an artistic structure for the scene
Analyzing the colours within the objects group
Wet and dry brush loading techniques
Emphasizing the focal point area
Harmonizing a final finish for the entire work.
