Meet Melissa Doty!
Learn Mel's favorite methods, tips, and tricks for taping off her watercolor paper to create grids and unpainted edging for her paintings. See her way of using watercolor to create abstract landscapes and learn along with her as she transforms tiny squares into magnificent landscapes. She uses the natural movement of the paint to create land-like striations and gorgeous sky shapes and uses color to guide her art. You will also see Mel use liquid watercolors to experiment. Mel uses alternative ways of creating her mini landscapes, like fine line applicators, fine tip pens, wet on wet techniques, and brush work. And at the end of the lessons, see Mel reveal her finished piece by peeling all the taped edges away.
