This is Shikashima island. I visited this place in 2016 with my family. It is a small island and it only took about 15 minutes to drive around it. On the far side of the island, I came across a rugged seascape with beautiful fluffy white clouds.
In the video lesson below, I will show you how to paint this scene in 5 simple stages.
|Flat brush||25 mm diameter (1″)|
|Mop or quill brush||10 mm diameter (just over 3/8”)|
|Pointed oval||10 mm diameter (3/5”)|
|Bamboo brush||Long and thin|
|Phthalo Blue (Red Shade)||Ultramarine blue is also okay.|
|Cobalt Turquoise Light||Cerulean is also okay.|
|Permanent Alizarin Crimson||Any cool red is okay, even a warm red will do.|
|Titanium white||Any white will do.|
Note: If you don’t have these colors and can’t wait, then just use the colors you’ve got.
|Watercolor paper||34 x 24 cms (13” x 10”)|
Note: I recommend a spiral bound pad.
