Video Tutorial

Welcome to the Online Video Tutorial for The Old Barn. Opposite is the reference image that we will be using to paint from, please feel free to print this image out if that helps you. Below is a brief description of the painting and what you can expect to learn from completing the tutorial. So please relax and enjoy this video tutorial.


This demonstration is a straight forward simplified landscape which has all the components for a successful watercolour painting. The scene has been simplified to help the beginner understand the basics of watercolour while still offering a challenge.

I use a limited pallet of colours and explain what I’m doing every step of the way, how I mix the colours and lay down the colour on the paper.
