Archives - Be a Better Painter Part 1 with Ben Manchipp

The aim of this video is to make you a better painter. In this first part, Ben looks at some of the core skills needed to improve the overall look of your painting. Starting with planned washes with defined lines, and finishing with a beautiful painting of a windmill, Ben explains many of the techniques you should use to make each painting you do better than the last.

Learn progressively throughout this video, following Ben’s instructions to take the skills learnt in the first exercise through to the second, and adding skills at every stage until you are using all the techniques in the last painting of the video.

This video is ideal for the watercolour painter who wants to look again at their painting technique, and improve in every aspect, from the way to use the paper and brush, to the use of colour.
