Here are two wonderful watercolor painting videos from artist Vinita Pappas. The purpose of these watercolor lessons is to teach you how to paint using simple, loose and confident brushstrokes. Vinita stresses the importance of practicing your brush strokes. Strong confident brush strokes will create strong confident paintings. Its as simple as that!
Confident and Simple Brushstrokes in Watercolor Painting Part 1
This first watercolor demo is a simple warm up exercise using only one color and a head of garlic as her subject and its designed to give you more confidence in your brush strokes. Vinita sets a limit to the number of brushstrokes that she will use in this painting. She says that this teaches you how to visualize the painting process before you begin. This tutorial is painted on dry paper that has been taped down to a board with masking tape.
Confident and Simple Brushstrokes in Watercolor Painting Part 2
In the second watercolor tutorial, Vinita again keeps things simple and only uses two colors. She is using a head of garlic again as her subject and is working bigger this time. Her paper is larger and has been dampened with water.
I really enjoyed watching these video tutorials from Vinita. She has a wonderful teaching style and I look forward to posting more of her lessons in the future.
