Once again, our quality sponsor this week is Craftsy which provides video tutorials and downloadable eGuides for aspiring artists. The resources they provide are aimed at people who want to quickly brush up on some basics. This week they’re offering a free downloadable eGuide on “Creating Realistic Waterscapes”.

The eGuide gives you an overview of things like the wet on wet technique, building up colour, using a masking fluid, and describing light and shadow. Not everyone is looking to paint raindrops obviously but there’s some good fundamentals here. If you’re interested: Download the eGuide for free.
