During this three-part series, Jonathan will show you how to paint big sky landscapes with watercolour paint.
Using photos as reference, he will demonstrate a different painting each week that will show you how to use lively painting techniques and different colours to create the atmosphere of stormy skies and sunsets.
You needn't have the materials ready whilst watching the live demonstrations – they are a time to watch, ask and learn. After each painting demo you will be sent a link to a recording, which you can watch as many times as you wish for thirty days. During the second and third session, Jonathan will offer feedback to any students who would like to share their work from previous weeks.
