Do you ever find yourself staring at a blank sheet of paper and not knowing where to start when painting any subject? I’ve been there! In this video, I give you the 5 basic steps to paint literally anything with watercolor. Yep, that includes landscapes, animals, flowers…anything!

So next time you sit down to paint, remember this:

  1. Sketch the basic shapes.
  2. Draw the contour of the subject.
  3. Paint the base layer.
  4. Add midtones.
  5. Finish with darkest (and highlight) details.

And if you want more watercolor guidance for strokes and techniques, check out the The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Watercolor.
