Here's what You get in this Bundle
All three courses are landscapes. Dale tells his studio students to start with landscapes, because nature is forgiving and an excellent learning tool. If your placement of a branch on a tree and it is a little off most likely no one will notice. But if you are painting a portrait and don’t get the proportions spot on well, you will have a less than desirable result. Adding to the mix you are learning a new medium – working with wet-on-wet and dry-on-wet techniques, handling your brushes and learning timing. Portraits, animals and flowers will come in due time. Painting landscapes helps quickly build your confidence.
All three courses include:
• Materials in PDF and JPG format
• Popovich’s personal Material List
• Photo Reference
Dale walks through the essential information regarding brushes, paints, papers, and additional supplies. From there he will take you through the three phases of painting a watercolor as a Paint-Along. You will watch the video and then recreate what he did on the video. This subject is a rural autumn scene in Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We recommend you start with this course.
