Announcing my first new tutorial for 2021. Watercolor Pencil Landscape for Beginners.
Landscapes are one of the most difficult subjects for many artists to capture. They have been for me. There’s simply so many possibilities in every scene, that an artist can quickly become overwhelmed.
I didn’t start doing serious landscapes until after I started using colored pencils. My skills have improved over the years, but one thing remains the same.
It still takes a long time to finish a landscape! Especially a big one.
So I started looking for other ways to draw and that’s how I discovered the usefulness of watercolor pencils.
And that led to this tutorial.
Watercolor Pencil Landscape for Beginners
In this tutorial, I share some of the lessons I learned about combining water and traditional colored pencils.
You’ll learn how to start your landscape with watercolor pencils, using them wet and dry.
Then you’ll see how to layer traditional colored pencils over the under painting. I’ll show you how to create the illusion of distance and draw trees that look like trees.
The tutorial includes a full supply list, a color chart so you can match colors if you don’t have Prismacolor pencils, and a line drawing. It also includes a full-size reference photo!

If you’re ready to dive into watercolor pencils, I hope you’ll give this tutorial a try. It’s written so you can do this project, then follow the same steps for your own landscape.
Or for most other projects you want to try.
