How many colors do you need to make great art? Sometimes, just one! Using fundamental watercolor techniques, Trupti Karjinni will teach you the importance of tones in a painting, how to paint soft edges, how to create depth, and how to control your brushstrokes to create a serene landscape, all with one color!

MODULES 1-2: Introduction & Supplies

Meet Trupti as she discusses the simple set of supplies you’ll need for this class, plus information on finding and working from multiple royalty-free reference photos.

MODULE 4: Painting the Background

Learn to apply the wet-on-wet technique to an entire page. Trupti will show you how to work in layers to create mist and clouds, which are the foundation of this piece.

MODULE 5: Sketching the Outline

MODULE 6: Pine Tree Brushstrokes

Before you jump into painting the trees, Trupti will show you how to paint them in her loose-but-realistic style. Students have said this exercise alone is worth more than the price of this class!

MODULE 7: Background Trees

MODULE 8: Foreground Trees
