Stormy Seascapes In Watercolor
Learn to paint this beautiful subject in watercolor
In this course, you’ll see how easy it is to paint a stormy seascape. I’ll guide you through a step-by-step process that will be very easy to follow. The course will be broken down into simple steps that will allow you to learn the skills to handle painting:
- Stormy sky
- A seagull
- Your signature
You’ll also learn all about edges and how important they are in your painting. I’ll show you how to soften edges, teach you how to paint four types of edges and give you examples of when to use them.
I’ll also teach you a simple way to sign your signature that works every time — a way to blend it into your paintings.
You can go at your own pace and review the video as needed. Watch closely to see how I mix the colors and handle the brush.
The techniques I’ll cover in this course will be:
- Dry brushing
- Mixing darks
- Using a spray bottle
- Scraping with an X-Acto blade
This course is for beginners or students who want to learn how to paint a seascape in a step-by-step process.
Let's go have some fun painting!
As a native of San Diego and graduate of San Diego State University, I have been painting and exhibiting my work for more than 30 years throughout Southern California. The bold lines, fluid shapes, and my color palette are influenced by my father’s paintings and my degree in graphic design.
In much of my work, I seek to capture our emotional and visceral response to a fleeting but sublime moment in time, a combination of color, intensity, movement, and expression.
While known for my representational and abstract work, my love is for portraits, and I have been honored with awards that include Best in Show for Cowboy at the San Dieguito Off Track Gallery and the Logan Award and Golden Award for Maasai Boy at the San Diego Watercolor Society’s 34th International Show.
For over a decade, I have been running workshops and juried watercolor shows in the San Diego area while teaching all levels of watercolor painting at a local community college and in my studio in Encinitas, CA. I find tremendous satisfaction from teaching and seeing my students, improve, gain confidence, and express themselves through watercolor.
