Monochrome Watercolor Painting: Master Value And Tone With One Color

Course Description:

Monochrome art is eye-catching and unique because it uses a single color to illustrate an entire piece. Best of all, when you explore a color’s full range of tonal values—from the brightest tones to the darkest tones—you enhance your painting by creating greater depth and dimension.

But many watercolorists aren’t sure how to build up values to create such bold visual contrast. As a result, their paintings often look flat and rather dull.

Fortunately, this course walks you step-by-step through four monochrome projects that each focus on mastering a different color’s range of tonal values—that means you don’t have to worry about juggling multiple pigments in one painting!

By the time you’ve completed this course, you’ll understand how to create value scales and apply the paint-to-water ratio more accurately so that you can add layers and distinguish between values with ease.

My review

This was a very informative course with many opportunities to practice using value and tone. Miranda was knowledgeable, engaging, easy to understand and follow along with! The pace of the course was perfect and I didn't feel like I was getting "left behind" during the paint alongs. I ended up with value studies for several paints in my palette and four awesome monochrome paintings. I would highly recommend this course!

The projects in this course helped me build a foundation for creating depth in paintings that I did not have previously.
