I am often asked what websites to visit when learning how to paint. I would immediately reply, “Youtube!”
My watercolor art journey started two years ago and I have learned a lot since then. I still continue to learn. Albert Einstein said that once you stop learning, you start dying. So I chose to learn unceasingly (Well, with leisure on the side).
I often refer to Anna Mason’s tutorials when it comes to botanicals. I love to paint flowers. Here is her tutorial in painting a rose:
Two years ago, I came across a tutorial on how to draw a realistic eye.
I continue to practice. I think it is the best way to learn. Put on the 10,000 hours of work and eventually, I get better than the last time. Here are my recent original botanical paintings.
I also follow a lot of watercolor artists on Instagram. I am currently part of the @wgcollab on instagram, where different watercolor artists share their painting techniques every day. Follow us there to learn more techniques. Use #wgcollab16 hashtag to find the videos. The videos are also posted on Facebook via Watercolour Gallery’s page. Here is my painting video I made for this month.[facebook url=”https://www.facebook.com/watercolourgallery/videos/1207394052625664/” /]
