I have been a professional artist for 10+ years and have two best-selling watercolor books. My passion is helping beginner artists get better, so I decided to critique beginner watercolor art. I point out what was good and how to improve on mistakes. This watercolor tutorial video will help anyone that is in this range of skill level.

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