Watercolor Resist Landscape
Inspired by the work of Clem Gouveia, an artist in WMA’s permanent collection!
Supplies needed: watercolor paper, black and brown crayons, watercolor kit with brush, and a cup with water
On watercolor paper, draw the trunks of your trees using a brown and black crayons.
Draw branches. Again, use brown and black crayons.
With your watercolor kit, create the landscape behind the trees, using darker colors at the bottom of your page to help illustrate perspective!
Around the middle of your canvas, add smaller trees using dots of color for the leaves and quick, short lines for the trunks.
Above the trees, add your sky.
Optional: fill any areas on your trees that the crayon missed. The crayon marks will resist the watercolor!
Let it dry and enjoy!
