    OK dude, we'll take care of you. Here's the scoop:

    1. Go to Office Max and buy a cheap set of watercolors. If the set includes a brush with a hollow metal handle, even better!
    2. Buy some paper. Looseleaf or cheap copier paper will do just fine.
    3. Get a container to put water in Empty jam jars with cartoon characters work the best.
    4. When you get home, put a sheet of paper on the kitchen table, fill the jar with water and open the set of paints.
    5. Dip the brush in the water, slosh the brush around on the watercolor paints then make a painting of Notre Dame Cathedral on the paper.
    6. When finished, attach the painting to the refrigerator door with a little magnet and brag to everyone who walks through the kitchen that you did that painting.

    There see? And people say this stuff is hard.

    If your local library does not have a book with a title like (or similar to)
    "Watercolour landscapes made easy" I will be VERY suprised.

    art people, there is no easy answer. There's not a step by step we could give you if you want to do really good watercolour landscapes, or any other sort of painting.

    Make a stop at your art supply store.. get a set of watercolours, but don't spend *too* much money. Get some inexpensive synthetic brushes. Get some inexpensive watercolour paper (often these papers can be expensive), but don't use just any old paper lying around. It'll buckle and be really annoying. Get a piece of wood, board or masonite.. tape the edges of your paper to the board.

    Go outside and find a pretty landscape. Paint it. Paint it again. Paint it as many times as you can. Scan and post your efforts on CA and we'll tell you how you can get better. After a while, you'll likely get good at painting landscapes.

    You guys make everything too complicated! What's with all this "research", "learning", and "going outside" stuff? I made this beautiful watercolor landscape in less than five minutes, and that included googling pictures and fiddling with the settings!

    See? Art is easy!

    1- trust me, you do not want to try that pic.
    2- go to www.wetcanvas.com and look in their watercolour forum, look for the various tutorials.

    try this.
    "art people": Not being fucking lazy could help you finding what you need (or at least something related).
    I don't even know why I have been looking for the link on the site so you don't have to do it.
    Tip: In the left menu (on the main page) you can find "Watercolors" (just click it it's a link). Congratulations you are now in the "Watercolors" channel. There you can find the "The Learning Zone" forums that leads to the link I posted above.

    Do you need people around you to tell you "inhale ... exhale!" all the time too?

    Sounds like you need a lesson in the basics. Surely you have a friend who can sit you down and walk it through for you?

    you're NOT going to learn all you need about watercolors from a step by step tutorial.

    thats like trying to learn to play piano by reading about pianos online... you need to go out and DO it.. ALOT. Over months and months, or years and years. Over and over and over.

    Follow the step by steps and get the hang of it, then start branching off on your own and get better at it. then spend a few years getting good. Watercolor is one of the tougher mediums to control, but NO medium can be perfected overnight. it's all about the practise.

    Tristan - are you this harsh with your students? or do you have to ass pat them becasue they paid the enormous SVA tuitions? I can't stop laughing.

    art people - go draw environments first. watercolor is a tool. you have to learn how to use it. But its worthless to you if you can't draw. I use watercolors all the time and i draw all the time. i've never painted a good watercolor landscape. not becasue i can't use watercolors. becasue i can't draw landscapes.

    2 weeks to do something good? Sorry buddy, but it ain't gonna happen.

    If you busted your tail for the two weeks you will be able to do something BETTER, but it won't be GOOD... at least not on a professional level.

    But, if a teacher is expecting you to learn watercolors in 2 weeks they're probably not expecting something professional. They're probably just wanting you to get frustrated with how uncontrollable watercolors are.

    Honestly dude, your own watercolours arent that bad, just keep on practicing. I don't see how you can be expected to improve alot over a 2 week period. Also, don't copy someone's work, especially for an exam, it's call plagiarism and is totally not cool. If 60% of your mark depends on this, why are you only starting to learn 2 weeks before? Learning to use a medium like watercolour takes a long time, it isnt something you can really rush or fake. But like I said before that second painting of yours is quite good, just keep practicing along those lines. The first one could benefit from watering down the paint more, especially in the mountain area, if you want the washy watercolour look.
