“After 40 years painting the National Parks, people sometimes ask me how I can find something new to paint. I assure them that just watching nature act out its light and shadow show on the cliffs and canyons provides entertainment enough. For this painting I reflected on a hike up a quiet trail in the Kolob Canyons section of Zion National Park. The trail still had patches of Snow, and signs of Spring, but I was the only one on the path that day. Come join me in my studio and watch over my shoulder as I develop this painting from rough sketches to final matting.” — Roland Lee
Join artist Roland Lee as he completes a finished painting of Zion National Park. Roland shares with you his techniques for using on-location experiences to develop finished studio paintings. This DVD includes 1 hour and 48 minutes of great video using multiple cameras as Roland explains and demonstrates each step of the creation process. See why this popular instructor has developed a huge following as you listen to his clear explanations and follow his step-by-step demo. A signature member of the National Watercolor Society, he has written articles for The Artist magazine and has presented to many watercolor societies nationally.
He describes such techniques as how to control the amount of water on the brush and paper, which pigments he likes best, how to use scumbling, drybrush, and negative painting. All techniques which have made his award-winning watercolor landscapes sought after by collectors throughout the world.
You can sit back and enjoy watching Roland paint, or you can follow his instructions and work on your own paintings by starting and stopping the DVD, re-winding to watch more carefully, and taking your own time to study particular techniques over and over again.
Each of Roland’s instructional videos begins with a time-lapse of the entire process so you can see where you are headed. Then follows a step by step explanation and live demonstration of how to plan the painting, mix pigments on the palette and on the paper, control moisture on the paper, use the brushes in special ways, and put it all together to make a good painting.
