This is Beppu bay. It is in Oita prefecture, Japan. And this particular part of the bay is about a 5 minute bicycle ride from my house. In the summer of 2016, I often went to this bay to paint the sun setting over the sea. It is an inspiring place.
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”)|
|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: I recommend 15ml tubes. Also 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. Also, I normally use a 34 x 24 cms (13” x 10”) pad. But in this video I use a 41 x 32 cm (16” x 12”) pad.
