Painting a Pastoral Landscape in Watercolour with Javid Tabatabaei

April 03, 2021


Join skilled master watercolour artist Javid Tabatabaei for an incredible demonstration of painting a pastoral landscape. To begin, Javid will introduce participants to the materials he uses including the watercolour paint colours, papers, and brushes. From there, Javid will walk us through the technique he uses to prepare his watercolour paper before starting the live painting portion of the demonstration. We invite you to watch as Javid skillfully paints a beautiful pastoral scene into existence by showing us how to paint vibrant sky, dynamic water, and believable waterside plant life. This demonstration will be fantastic for beginners to practiced watercolour artists alike or for anyone interested in watching the painting process of a master watercolour artist.
