Your class project is to draw and paint your coastal watercolor landscape! This can be a scene featured in this class, or based on one of your photographs or scenes you have observed outside.

You can also refer to the scanned drawing/painting templates attached below which will allow you to trace the drawing if you choose to do so. I recommend drawing each scene freehand. Drawing is an important step in improving your painting skills. This provides you with an opportunity to compose and plan your painting. Once you've finished the drawing, use the watercolor steps and processes included in the class demonstrations to complete your painting.


Use any watercolour paints, pencil, watercolour paper, and brushes you have available. I recommend:

0.5mm mechanical pencil

Artist grade watercolour paints - blue, yellow and red

100% cotton watercolour paper or sketchbook

Watercolour Brushes - mop brush and a variety of round brushes for detailing.

Getting Started:

Review the class demonstration videos first. You can also download the tracing templates to transfer over your drawing if you wish.

Looking to sketch and paint another scene? Research some free reference photo websites, pick one of your own reference photos, or simply find a outdoor location where you can sit and paint. Using the steps and processes included in this class, create your own unique painting.
