What’s so great about landscape painting?
A lot of things, as it turns out. Landscape painting offers something different to every painter; whether it’s capturing the fleeting beauty of a changing landscape, the pull of a a coastal seascape you return to every summer, or even just a small patch of land at the park, if there’s something that everyone has access to, it’s some kind of landscape. And while a trip to the beach might be outside of your budget, finding the beauty of your backyard is free.
And within any landscape, there’s something worth painting.
Of course, being inspired to paint a landscape and actually painting it are two very different things. But painting a landscape doesn’t have to be difficult, especially when you’re painting in watercolor. Want to learn how to create amazing landscape paintings that sparkle with color and vibrancy?
