The above watercolor painting was completed in less than 15
minutes. You can also paint beautiful watercolor paintings
in 15 minutes. My method of watercolor painting is backward from
most watercolor workshops. As children we paint freely and loose
when playing with toy watercolor sets. Then as adults we learn
all the rules, the design, the perspective, color mixing. All
the things we need to advance to the next level, but in
the process we forget how to paint loose and free. We start
using smaller brushes to add more details. We go back into the
painting to fix this and that and the next thing you know we
have mud. To keep your watercolors spontaneous and free we need
to paint quickly with big brushes using the minimum number of

A Word About My Workshops
My workshops are designed especially
for anyone not having a lot of experience in watercolors or
someone developing a frustration level with watercolors.
You'll learn the basics of design and composition to make
your watercolor paintings advance to the next level. You
don't need any painting experience or background to paint 15
minute watercolors. We'll show you everything you need in
our workshops. You also don't need any special drawing
skills as we only use very basic outline drawings. I am
constantly surprised at the number of watercolor painters
with college degrees in art, that don't use proper design
and composition techniques in their watercolor paintings.
Sure they can tell you which artist lived in certain
centuries and provide sophisticated terminology and names
for the style of painters they were, but they don't
understand Variety, Alternation, Value Sketches, Center Of
Interest, Dominance or many of the other basic essentials
that even the master painters of the 16 century used in all
their paintings. Proper design, composition and perspective
is a must if you want your paintings to "POP" with
My painting technique utilizes the
basic foundations of the watercolor medium: Paint quickly
with big brushes using the minimum number of brush strokes.
This is really the secret of doing fresh, spontaneous and
transparent watercolor paintings. Get in quick and get out,
and don't go back in again.
I call my painting method "Watercolor
Paintings in Less Than 15 Minutes". I'll show you how to
use some design techniques that will allow you to paint
beautiful watercolors in less than 15 minutes. You'll be
amazed how easy it is to paint a watercolor painting.
Anyone can do 15 minute watercolor paintings. I only
focus on the basic design concepts that will make your
watercolor paintings come to life in One Day Workshops.
I only use the the three primary watercolor paints (Red,
Yellow and Blue) and three different sizes of big paint
brushes ( 2 inch, 1.5 inch and 1/2 inch flat brushes). So
the supplies are relatively inexpensive.
How To Paint Watercolor Paintings In Less Than
You need to select a value pattern for your watercolor painting.
In the above watercolor painting I use a large dark with a
smaller white form overlapping the larger darker area. This is a
value pattern I use a lot. You only need two or three different
value patterns to do hundred's of watercolor paintings. So pick
one or two you like and stick with then for a while.
Sketch your pattern on your watercolor paper and wet both sides
completely until they are soaked. Either stretch the paper
beforehand or add clamps on the sides of your backboard to hold
the paper as it dries and shrinks. This will stretch the paper
as you paint. The paper will dry in 12 to 15 minutes.
Paint your sky using variation and gradation and start adding
foliage to your middle ground. Use fresh paint each time you
pick up paint from the pallet to keep the colors glowing as they
mix. Also do your mixing on the paper. Put one color say yellow
on the wet paper and then add blue and watch the green colors
explode on the wet paper. This is a very exciting painting
Change the color often to add variety in color. Doesn't matter
what color, just something different.
Use symbols for trees, rocks, buildings, etc. Never
paint what you see, unless it's a landmark and needs to be
painted that way for recognition. Develop your own set of
symbols for things. This will make you unique as an artist. Be
sure to vary the size, color and value of your shapes or
now the paper is dry and all you need to do is add the
foreground water and you are finished. The water should be done
in the fewest number of brush strokes possible. Three to five
strokes for an ocean!

Beginners are also confused by all the
color hype on the market today. Color is not that big a deal.
There are only three primary colors but few watercolor painters
paint with three colors in their pallets. I believe many
beautiful paintings can be completed with the three primary
watercolor colors, but I like to use a cool and a warm version
of each color. This also allows you color variety as you paint.
First you use the cool yellow and then you use the warm yellow.
Painting in less than 15 minutes will allow these colors to
explode and mix into many different colors. See my pallet colors

focused on the basics necessary to make a watercolor
painting come together. Things like composition, doing a
value sketch before you start painting, basic design
elements and principles that make up a great painting. These
are the things that will breath life into your watercolor
paintings. Keeping your painting applications and techniques
fresh.. His technique involves wetting the entire watercolor
paper completely before applying any watercolor paints. Then
applying watercolor paint quickly with the minimum number of
brush strokes. The paper dries in 14 minutes so you have to
work fast. Another few minutes to work on some details and
the watercolor painting is finished.
Students often comment my painting style looks loose, free and
colorful. That's because I paint quickly with big brushes. I
have the students do some exercises where they paint an entire
painting by the time the paper dries. They are all surprised how
great their painting look. They are forced to paint with the
minimum number of brush strokes in order to finish the painting
before the paper dries. They get in and get out of the painting.
You only need your first impression of an
object, not all the details of the object. This is where your
symbols come in. You paint your symbol for a tree not the tree

"Watercolor Painting Is Really Simple!
We make it hard.
Everyone tries to make it too complicated. Anyone can paint
beautiful watercolor paintings with some guidance and practice. I
can't spend hours or days, let alone weeks doing a painting. I spend
most of my time planning the painting and making sure my rough
sketch is accurate. Then I wet the paper completely and start
painting as fast as I can until the paper dries. Usually 7 to 14
minutes. A few more minutes adding a few details and your finished.
From a design standpoint, a well designed, quickly done painting
like this will be the most translucent, spontaneous and loose that
possible. It all makes sense. The longer you take to paint a
watercolor painting the more of the above desirable qualities you
lose. Add variety and you will have a beautiful watercolor painting.
"Variety is the spice of everything nice"
