This painting starts with a colorful, textural background. Hills are created with negative painting. Optional trees are added with watercolor and rubber stamps. No previous watercolor experience is necessary. All levels of painters will complete a successful painting using the step by step directions. No drawing experience is necessary. The student will complete two 11” x 15” underpaintings and complete at least one painting in class. The paintings can be torn into smaller, narrow paintings to fit that perfect spot in your home!
