How to paint a landscape with Nathaniel Skousen

Step 1

Prepare your colour palette

Get your colour palette together. Using brightly coloured paints alongside more muted tones can bring the most out of the colours you have.

Step 2

Apply the main colours

Apply the main colours of the image in a wash, getting the basic forms. Watercolour is a forgiving medium so some mistakes can always be corrected.

Step 3

Let it dry

Allow it to dry completely before using/wearing.

Step 4


Varnish if needed to ensure the new paint job can handle being used and worn.
