Create compelling landscape paintings with unusual compositions! Nature is filled with patterns that can be used to compose a picture, from the radial design of the sun peeking out from behind a tree to the consistently varying curved lines that suggest wave movement. In this video demonstration, Gordon MacKenzie shares his painting techniques for using composition to enhance the impact of your work. You'll lift color from wet pigment to portray rays of light filtering through a forest and use a series of repeated, directional brushstrokes to emulate the seas. With this video, you'll be using composition to your advantage right away!

In this watercolor painting tutorial, you'll:

  • Work on two watercolor paintings from start to finish
  • Paint landscape elements including water, skies, trees, fog, and distant land
