Watercolour On Location Livestream Replay

September 21, 2022 | 2 Comments

I had so much fun hosting a livestream on YouTube this morning, and now I’m even more excited to go through the Watercolour On Location course again!

I shared a number of concepts from the course…

the importance of having good observation skills – focusing particularly on angles and lengths

how to think about the values of a whole scene (and clearly see the shadow shapes) before starting with paint in order to create contrast and interest

how to find a focus/story and how angles and values can sometimes affect our original idea

and how even relatively simple scenes need thought and can be improved by little adjustments.

I even gave an exclusive peek inside the Watercolour On Location classroom.

The replay including links to PDF files and more details of my tools can be found here.

Thanks to everyone who was part of the fun event… and I can’t wait to go through the Watercolour On Location course again and host weekly livestreams with the group. Today I realised how much I’ve missed the SketchingNow community so I’m really looking forward to hanging out with them again over the next 12 weeks.

The Live Version starts next week – on Wednesday 28th September and you can signup here.

It will be at least two years before I’ll be able to go through Watercolour On Location again in this interactive way. Are you joining us? Let me know in the comments below!

    Hi Liz, I watched the replay this morning from the UK, I’m just finishing the self directed group run through of Edges, I have done foundations and watercolour this year and am sooo looking forward to watercolour on location group run-through. I have to say it’s fantastic to be part of the group especially with you leading us, your enthusiasm is infectious and so motivating! I have been watching many of the livestreams from foundations, watercolour and edges over and over, they are all so good, you explain the concepts so well and no matter how many times I watch I always pick up something new and it helps me to remember the concepts. I think this aspect of your courses is completely invaluable.
