Line and Wash Painting: Real Time Painting Video “Snail in the Rain” (Part 5 of 8)

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.
