Welcome to Coastal Australian Landscapes Made Simple!

In this course, we’ll paint some coastal Australian landscapes from Eastern Victoria (Wilson’s Promontory). Capturing an impression of a landscape in a fast, fun, and loose manner is an essential skill every artist should master. Watercolour is the ideal medium, enabling you to create impromptu and lively artwork while on the move.

Each landscape in this course can be completed in approximately 30 minutes, including the drawing. I’ll show you how to simplify shapes and estimate/pencil in large forms such as sky, water, and land. Getting those significant components accurately is essential for your painting to make sense.

So join me in this course! You’ll see how easy it is to create a beautiful landscape painting in no time.
