Levelling Up: Country Lane in Watercolour

Follow along with Joe Dowden, as he creates a vivid country lane in watercolour. There are three levels to this tutorial, each level increasing how challenging the painting becomes.

Watercolour is a forgiving medium, which can be thinned out or layered up to achieve different effects. They are wonderful for beginners as mistakes can be easily corrected. For these paintings, watercolour paper is the recommended surface.
