Watercolour – windmill

Due to family stuff, appointments and Easter holidays I’m missing art class until the beginning of May but this isn’t going to be a month long absence from painting.

This windmill is the second step by step tutorial in the Matthew Palmer book.

The finished example

Lots of detail and new techniques to learn, so a huge step up from the previous landscape. However, I think I did a pretty good job with it!

    Wow! Is this freehand, did you sketch your own outline for it? Honestly – no BS – this is fantastic!! xx

      A basic outline is traced but apart from the windmill detail, it’s just the treeline, the path etc.
