Scraping Watercolor in a Landscape - Advanced
How to Scrape Watercolor Rocks, Trees, and Mountains
Scraping Watercolor - A Quick and Effective Technique for Rocks, Trees and Mountains
This is an advanced course - working step by step to paint and scrape an entire landscape. Step by step, a landscape is doable and goes smoothly.
First we scrape the mountains, going right over the big tree in the front. Once you're happy with your mountains, you'll add a green foreground with salt texture and a loose sky. Next comes the distant trees, with tips on best colors and brushstrokes for them, plus a little scratching out. Last you'll lift out the tree shape to paint and scrape the foreground tree, rocks and grasses.
This lesson teaches lots of watercolor shortcuts to great landscapes - scraping, salt, scratching bark texture, distant trees and grasses, plus lifting instead of painting around.
Learning how to scrape takes practice, and this lesson is excellent guided practice for students who are already familiar with the basics of scraping.
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!
