Beach Sunset Watercolor

watercolor wednesday

Hello everyone! Are you ready for another Watercolor Wednesday post?

This week I have this super quick and simple Beach Sunset Watercolor painting to share with you.

This painting can easily changed up using different colors for the sky and guess what… it only uses ONE stamp!

Let’s get started!

This is the only stamp we will be using for this painting. It can’t get much easier than this. 🙂

You will only need four markers unless you decide to change up the sunset a little. I used:

  • No 86 African Violet
  • No 19 Carmine
  • No 49 Vermilion
  • No 15 of a Black TomBow

This painting is created on a 4×4 square of watercolor paper.

Begin by drawing a circle in the center of your page. I traced around the outer ring of my mason jar lid.

On your pallet, mix some African Violet with the Black to create a darker purple color. This will be used for the beach. Paint in the beach.

Next, use the vermilion to paint the first section of the sky. Make this section as large as you’d like.

Then, use the Carmine to add the next layer of the sky overlapping over the orange a little to blend the two layers together.

Lastly, use African Violet to paint the final layer of the sky, again overlapping the pink layer to blend the two together.

Time to add the palm trees!

Ink the palm tree stamp with black then stamp it off onto a piece of scrap paper then ink the stamp with African Violet. Press the stamp on the painting in the center. Repeat the inking process and add as many trees as you’d like.

Once your trees are stamps, only add water to the leave section of each tree.

And that’s it! Once everything is dry, erase the circle line and sign and date it.

Perfect quick painting!

Join me next week for a brand new painting that you can try. 🙂
