In this video, I will show you how to paint a misty ocean from a reference photo step by step tutorial in gouache and watercolor.

  • I will share with you how to observe and simplify into shapes and values
  • Way to know if the painting needs more contrast or highlights ( if you get stuck in the middle and don’t know what to do next )

  • Finally is my thought on the final results.
