Paint Loose Watercolor Plants and Nature Sceneries

Watercolor Illustration with
Artist, Ciaoyin


Do you often stop in the middle of the street because you are stunned by the beauty of a corner or gorgeous scenery? Do you want to turn the landscapes on your journey into an artwork?

This course will show you how to capture the light, shadow, and street views with plants or countryside sceneries. We will practice every step from the basic composition to the completion of the work. I’m going to show you how I use only simple sketches and use watercolors for all the work. In this way, you will learn to paint with fewer restrictions and enjoy more possibilities. I will teach you how to draw plants and shadows using soft colors, and add only the necessary details.


This class is prepared for those who like to observe nature, flowers, and plants. It is also suitable for watercolor learners who want to learn how to paint light, shades, gradients, and color combinations. Whether you are just starting out or have the experience, you can acquire new skills, learn about tools, and small tricks to paint your favorite scenery.


By the end of this course you will have a greater understanding of painting plants with loose watercolors. Also, you will be able to paint shadows and ​natural sceneries​, using confident brushstrokes and controlling the wetness.

Meet Your Creator



I’m Ciaoyin, artist and illustrator from Taiwan, currently living in Spain. I have learned different types of painting since I was little, my major in college was printmaking, but I love the texture and the transparency of watercolor, so I started to focus on it a few years ago. This year I’ve been painting many landscapes and what I see everyday since I moved to a new environment. I get inspiration from nature and the city I live in every day. I‘ve been teaching watercolor for 4 years. I am always happy to meet people who are also interested in watercolor, and I would love to share my experience with you.
