I painted this watercolor of my Mum’s garden for a Mothers day gift,she absolutely loves it and it takes pride of place on her wall.Then I thought, “I bet lots of budding watercolor artists would love to do the same thing”So I have made this tutorial to show you how to do it.Follow me step by step and paint this picture in watercolors, when you have done that you will have all the skills required to paint your own!If you come across any problems,ask me in the Q and A section and I will do my best to help you.See you in the first lesson,David.My name is David Walker,I have been a professional artist for over 30 years painting mainly in watercolor.Over the years I have done many live tutorials all around the U.K. and I now teach to a worldwide audience with Udemy.The painting is done in real time so I can not go back and re film something if there is a problem.This is what appeals to me as an artist,I have to think on the spot and if there is an accident on the painting I have to sort it out there and then,so if you hear my dog grumbling in the background or the seagulls raiding my bins or me putting my brush into my coffee instead of my water,please bare with me,it is all part of the fun which,watercolor painting should be.See you soon David.Art is such a beautiful way to express yourself and as a watercolor artist for over 30 years I can not urge you enough to give painting in watercolors a try,I never get bored with the effects of the colors on my paper,I still learn new techniques in my work every time I paint something,it is such a free and easy medium and it is well worth the time and effort you may invest.To paint a watercolor picture is to escape into your own little world where nothing else matters and all your problems and worries can be forgotten, at least for a little while.To give your own watercolor painting as a gift could not be more rewarding,I never get bored with the expression on the face of a friend or family member when I present them with an original watercolor painting which I have painted specially for them.The medium of watercolor, for me, is the ultimate medium because even as a complete beginner you can achieve many effects using techniques which sometimes you are taught and sometimes you learn by complete accident which we call “happy accidents”,such as when one color runs into another color and creates water marks or bleached paper,this is why sometimes I sit and watch the painting paint itself in front of my very eyes.Of course now and then it does not work out as I wanted it to but all I have lost is a little bit of paint pigment,a piece of watercolor paper and a little time so I put that piece of paper to one side and start again!Too many people have a go at painting with watercolors and think that they have to produce a perfect painting every time and they overwork the piece,desperate to get a finished painting to hang on their wall and of course they end up with a mess,get dispirited and give up announcing that they will never be an artist and so never paint again.I would like to show these people the hundreds of watercolor paintings that didn’t work out for me because without making mistakes you can’t improve.I keep all my paintings good and bad and I look at the failures quite often,in these failed paintings there is quite often a part of the painting that I really like and I try to remember which technique,which colors I used,which brush made a particular mark on the paper so I can use these same techniques in my future watercolor paintings. If I was stranded on a desert island,my watercolor kit would be the first thing I would wish for.
