In this video, I show you the steps necessary to create a watercolor beach landscape scene from scratch using water color paints and ink pens.
In this drawing I used the following Supplies:
Blick Watercolor Paint in various colors
Blick Watercolor Brushes
Copic Inking Pens
Basic pencil for sketch
14 x 17 Bristol Paper
This painting started out with a basic pencil sketch just to get all the object placement arranged and situated to my liking. After which I used a Copic inking pen to put in the darkest darks into the painting. The copic markers dry fast and the watercolor will not disturb them once they are dry.
Soon after the ink is all dried, I then apply the layer of watercolor paint. You have to work fast with watercolor because it dries very fast unlike oil paint. It is also very transparent so you have to have all the placement of colors pre determined because it will be very difficult to fix mistakes if one should arise.
I always start with the furthest object in the background when I paint or draw landscapes. So I usually start with the sky. I left areas white to be the clouds later on. I fill the areas around them with a light blue color.
Once the clouds and sky are finished, ill move to the next object. This is usually the middle ground of the drawing. In this case it is the furthest rocks and distant horizon line ocean water. The rocks were rather simple because I had already applied the darkest darks to them with the markers and all i had to do was add some color to them.
The water was created using a variety of blue colors as well as mixing colors. When I draw or paint water, showing a variety of color helps to show the light and moment of the water without getting too detailed with it.
The same applies for when painting in the waves. I try to vary the colors to show a 3 dimensional object at work. It helps to show the curves and form.
the sand was just a very light wash of light brown sandy colored paint mix.
