Who loves watercolor landscapes?

They can be so much fun to paint, I admit. It transports you to another place and time full of memories from a past trip or excitement for an adventure still to come.

In this tutorial, we're painting a simple and beautiful mountain landscape along a lake with details like clouds, mountain shading, and reflections in the water.
