One of the most iconic and recognizable landscapes in the world is the Tuscan countryside. And I’ll be honest, I’ve been dreaming of those rolling vineyard hills recently. So I thought why not teach you how to paint a watercolor Italian countryside?
This style is another Matisse-inspired painterly vibe—similar to my beach scene here. I just love painting in this style because it’s playful and flowy. It’s not complicated and it’s great for any skill level. This tutorial is jam-packed with fun techniques. I hope you enjoy!
