Amish Silhouette in Two Colors
Red plus green can make an entire painting when you're working in silhouette.
You'll be surprised how quickly this lesson goes when painting is simplified to just values.
At the end, you can add washes of color to your foreground for a believable foggy effect.
Trees can be done with a brush or, as shown, with a small piece of natural sponge.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson.
My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.
I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.
I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!
Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.
