While I like watching all kinds of art videos on YouTube, I especially love real-time videos. This is because I can then really learn from the artist as he or she is going about creating a painting or drawing. And I love line and wash paintings.
So I thought why not create a video in real time of my own line and wash painting process, perhaps it may be useful for another artist. And… here’s my video for you 🙂
I have uploaded my line and wash painting video in eight parts so you can have bite size chunks of watching.
A simple and easy line and wash painting of a snail in real time, with detailed notes. This is Part 5 out of 8.
Art Supplies used for this Line and Wash Painting
– Various artist watercolor paints, as displayed throughout the video
– Paper: 7″x5″ Arches 100% cotton, 140lb cold press watercolor paper
