I'm looking for some modern great watercolor painters who specifically offer online education courses.

So far I've found James Gurney, Marco Bucci, and Nathan Fowkes (pictured)

All that I do is watercolor/white-gouache paintings outdoors. These three are god-tier.

Wait, Gurney does courses? I only know about his books and blog.

Sorry about taking so long to reply. I thought this thread went into the void. It turns out hes a Canadian, so he was selling art at a booth in fan exbo. I was a poorfag so I couldn't buy anything from him but we stood around and talked for like a good half an hour or so, just about art, the industry and how i appreciated his style and effort, and how much his little booth stood apart from all the sky high towers of prints and sakimi-clones (and sakimichan herself, who was there later making absurd amounts of sales). He was a genuinely nice person to talk to, and he saw that I had my sketchbook in my hands and if he could see it. I said sure and that I would like some c&c. He gave some fantastic and elaborate critique, wrote a note in my book and as a final gesture, gave me one of his art books for free. Honestly, at that time I was meeting him for the first time and had not seen anything from him other then what was on the table, but holy hell was I blown away when I got home and saw the full extend of his work. To this day, I look back on it as a defining moment of sorts, that he would be so kind and not shrug me off in leu of potential buyers. It gives me hope that if I ever "git gud" that I could be like him, caring and nurturing. And I know that he will probably forget me, If he hadn't the day after we talked, but, as sappy as it sounds, I wont forget him

Kek, 4th is watercolor, but the others OP posted are not.
Someone else educate this dense motherfucker, I don't have time for this.

>>2359814

Why are you posting this pizza restaurant tier art in the same thread as gods like Nathan Fowkes? Shame on you, anon. We are all worse off for having to see this shitty art.

They're watercolor and white gouache sketches.
>>2362118
I've had some online correspondence with him. He critiqued some of my digital paintings as well as some of my older watercolors. He's so generous with information, and I've seen most of his online workshops. He's not the best painter, but he's got a really original style to me, and is a great teacher.
>>
>>2359561
Cheng-khee Chee. Saw some of his originals recently and it's incredible. A lot of these watercolors are over 40" wide. Doesn't do online but if you live near Duluth, MN he does workshops periodically. I don't like all of his work, but his late career wet on wet work and his early traditional watercolors are incredible. Definitely a master of his craft.
>tfw had the opportunity to visit his studio and turned it down because I hadn't gitted gud, and regret it every day

No Paul Bonner? Plebs.

I met James Gurney once while he was in Chicago. It was on the north side by the red line around Wrifley Field. I was on my way home from class and I saw someone walking around carrying an easel set in a backpack.

I was like, "that guy looks familiar...is that...is that James Gurney?"

It was and I introduced myself and told him that I was a huge fan of his and had all of his Dinotopia books, as well as his books on light and color. He thought it was awesome and we chatted for a couple of minutes before I decided to quit bothering him so he could work.

And then the magnificent son of a bitch invited me to stay and watch. Holy shit, I got to stay and get a private 1.5 hour lesson in gouache painting from James Motherfucking Gurney. He explained everything about his process, his palette selection and talked his way through the whole painting. I learned more in that time than I did in months of self study.

Coolest, nicest dude ever. 10/10 would bump into randomly in the street again.

yiff in hell, dave rapoza.

Consider me jelly. In his postings and comments he always seems like such a cool dude, I'm glad he is as friendly as he seems.
>>
>>2365045
Hot damn, do you have any particularly good tips to share?

Idk, when you use watercolor like gouache it loses appeal.

just found this guy. Pretty new but I dig his style
>>
>>2365318
Bonner's stuff definitely doesn't look like watercolor, but it is interesting to see what can be done with the medium. I do find it weird he doesn't just do straight oils or something though.
>>
>>2359817

That is so beautiful! :)
>>
>>2366233

woweeee! going through some of his other works. so much vibrance in this one :)
>>
>>2366247
This kind of painting is so kitsch as to be what I consider toxic.

>>2366247
Looks like Hitler's paintings, but with psychedelic colors.

sorry for being ignorant, sounds like an amazing experience, but please enlighten me - who is marco?
>>

His watercolor/goache paintings are especially great.
>>
>>2370908
I like his digital paintings better though, most of his watercolor works don't appeal to me that much... I find the colors... washed out??
