Project 1 Overview and Handouts

Project 1 Overview

In this project, you’ll learn the fundamental skills we’ll use throughout the course: 

  • how to prepare your materials to increase your success with skies and clouds in watercolor
  • how to identify some of the common challenges in painting skies and begin learning to plan your painting sequence to deal with one difficulty at a time
  • laying graded washes (over larger areas than in Watercolor Jumpstart)
  • glazing to create depth of color or deal with one challenge at a time, while keeping a wet-into-wet look
  • using water and gravity to create flowing movement in watercolor skies and clouds
