Cottage door

Follow this demonstration to paint wood texture in watercolour, adapted from a book by Terry Harrison

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

How to paint texture

Learn a step-by-step approach to watercolour painting

Doors are a particularly good subject. You will come across attractive entrances to buildings in most towns and villages both at home and abroad. A doorway alone is enough to evoke an image of a favourite place or a wonderful holiday. Wherever you find your door, you will discover it is easy to turn into a painting. When you have painted a few different examples, you may find you have a favourite that you want to incorporate into a larger study.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to a new year of painting with Leisure Painter. We begin this month's tutorials with David Webb's new year-long series, Watercolour basics and beyond, where he takes you through essential watercolour techniques. This month, David discusses basic equipment and the first of the techniques: the wash. For all those who want a back-to-basics approach to drawing and painting, we have step-by-step demonstrations, illustrated techniques and practical advice in watercolour, acrylics and oils as well as drawing media. For those with more experience, you will find plenty of inspiration and practical instruction for painting portraits, landscapes, animals, still lifes, abstracts, a market scene and more. We're here to help you make the most of your favourite hobby.
