Painting Challenge: Underwater

We’re going to dive into this week’s challenge!   Sorry for the bad pun… I couldn’t resist.  🙂

Paint an underwater scene.     

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #underwater

Deadline June 10, 2022, 11:59 pm ET

This could be fish, dolphins, scuba divers, plants, coral, a shipwreck… anything found under water.

This was a painting I did following  YouTube video by Ksenia Annis.

What is the prize?   

Our sponsor this week is Angela Fehr.   The prize for one random winner will be lifetime access to her Watercolour Workout course.    Yes, lifetime!  Start anytime.  Finish anytime.  Return to it for a refresher anytime.

Watercolour Workout” focuses on the exercises that Angela uses and that have made her a better painter. You will find these lessons strengthen your painting skills, helping you think more creatively as she demonstrates creative warmups and exercises focused on:

  • Exploring watermedia – watercolour pencils, ink pencils, aquasticks & more
  • Sketching on the go
  • Using sketches to build a painting (using contour drawing, value studies, shape studies & more)
  • Evaluating and learning from your best work
  • Learning through copying a great painting
  • “Recycling” a bad painting
  • Painting expressively to capture mood or memory
