Winter in watercolour

Part 3 In the final part of his watercolour series, Colin Joyce demonstrates how to find and paint the patterns of a winter landscape

Watercolour

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Practise the wet-in-wet technique

How to adapt a photograph into a painting

Build your colour-mixing confidence

For the final part of my series on painting winter scenes in watercolour, I am venturing out into the countryside to look for interesting patterns in the landscape. A covering of snow, whether it is just a light dusting or a thick blanket, transforms the landscape into wonderful patterns, which may not be evident in other seasons.

A zoom lens on a camera is useful for spotting potential subjects, and compressing distances and perspective thereby doing the cropping for you. If you paint outdoors, I suggest taking a little viewfinder with you to help visualise your painting. These are available to buy in art stores or you can make your own from a piece of card; just cut out an aperture to suit the dimensions of your canvas or paper.
