Video Archive: The Wonders of Watercolor with Lynn Stender


  • *Guest Name

Welcome to Watercolor and all the wonders of this medium.

This single-session lesson will be more about the “Medium” and how to create layers, texture and the surprises watercolor presents.

For this class, I will be working on Arches watercolor paper, 10 x 14 block.  Please have extra watercolor scrap paper for testing color and brush strokes. I have included below a photo of my pallet, mostly Windsor Newton paints. Please use what you have and I will teach you how to mix a color that you might not have. I use a Judi Betts Shape makers brush, which is a double ended brush, one inch flat and #8 round, please use what you have as long as you have a flat and round brush.

You can paint along with me or just watch, whatever you are comfortable with.

I will send a photo of the subject a week before the class and go over how to draw or you can use transfer paper if you like.

Message from the instructor, Lynn Stender:

May the Sun Smile upon your face and the Wind be at your Back”.

The subject below will give you a taste of the Wonders of Watercolor. Setting the mood of the painting in your sky, learning different ways to paint Clouds, creating movement in Water, drawing and sailing a Boat, and creating an array of greens from your palette.

I hope you will join me in painting this subject !
