TUTORIAL: “Painting Simple Landscapes Exercise” by Angela Fehr

Angela Fehr World Watercolor Month 2018 Simple Things Watercolor Tutorial

Angela Fehr is a World Watercolor Month Artist Ambassador, which means along with our other Artist Ambassadors, she’s donating a portion of proceeds all month long in July to The Dreaming Zebra Foundation. She’s actually done this every single year since World Watercolor Month was founded two years ago! A huge Doodlewash thanks to Angela for her constant enthusiasm and support of our global charitable celebration to raise money and spread awareness for arts education! 

Hi, I’m Angela Fehr. As a watercolour instructor, I think the very best way for me to celebrate World Watercolor Month, and all the wonderful things watercolor has given in my life, is in the spirit of generosity, and so all through July I’ll be here on the Doodlewash blog, sharing weekly watercolor lessons.

Today I’m giving you a look at my interpretation of the upcoming July 6th official prompt, “Simple Things.” As a self-taught artist, long ago I learned that when I simplify, my paintings improve, and so I want to share a look at one way I paint “simple things” today with this example of how to paint simple landscapes in watercolor.

Remember that whenever we are painting, we are creating symbols that represent the objects we want to depict, and these symbols can be as loose or as detailed as your own individual style. You decide! When you simplify, you benefit by getting to the “bones” or foundation of your scene, and really figuring out what gives it visual appeal to connect with your viewer.
