Introducing  Kami Mendlik’s Brand NEW Course:

Mastering Water: The Secrets of Color and Reflection

A step-by-step companion video to Kami Mendlik’s best-selling book, Color Relativity

In this video, Kami will teach you the key elements of painting the illusion of water and reflections in your landscape paintings.

The goal is to increase your confidence to create successful paintings by understanding the principles of water and light.

You’ll also discover 3 simple tips you can try immediately to create realistic water, including the correct brushwork technique to paint reflections (most artists get this wrong).

Time to solve this challenging puzzle once and for all so you start painting more water scenes confidently!


Course Length: 5+ Hours

Chapter 1: Introduction (3 min.)

Kami Mendlik introduces the video by talking about her plein air painting experiences. She explains how these outdoor sessions can lead to complete artworks or serve as references for larger studio projects. Using your own outdoor experiences and observations can help you understand realistic reflections in water more intimately. Kami’s aim for this video course is to blend experiences and creativity with traditional art principles.

Chapter 2: Graphing Your Subject (8 min.)

Hate math? No problem. In this chapter, Kami outlines a straightforward method for enlarging a plein air study to a studio painting without using math! She uses a photograph of her outdoor color study, explaining how to create a grid on both the photo and the painting surface. This technique helps maintain accurate proportions as she begins painting.

Chapter 3: Materials (5 min.)

Kami reviews the oil painting materials she uses, including her choice of paints (she paints with an expanded limited palette), brushes, and palette knives, as well as her preference for a halftone gray palette. This choice is crucial for accurately seeing the value of colors, a topic she will explore in depth throughout the demonstration.

Chapter 4: The Block-In Wash (30 min.)

This chapter focuses on beginning the painting by establishing the dark areas first. Kami stresses the importance of working with transparent colors to lay down the foundational shapes and tones, preparing for the application of thicker layers of paint later on. She discusses the role of brushwork in creating reflections and the overall composition, emphasizing big shapes and accuracy from the start.

Chapter 5: Build Up Shapes (49 min.)

Kami continues to develop the painting by adding to the initial shapes, now adding white to create opaque and lighter colors. She advises on constantly evaluating the temperature and value of colors as the painting progresses. The chapter emphasizes the non-final nature of this stage, encouraging flexibility and adjustment to get the colors just right.

Chapter 6: Create Color Harmony (46 min.)

This chapter delves into techniques for achieving color harmony and guiding the viewer’s eye through the painting. You’ll learn how to use “transition colors” to help softly separate subjects. You’ll also learn how Kami vividly recalls and incorporates all senses experienced during her plein air session into the studio work. Tips on maintaining connected dark and light shapes, being fully present in the painting process, and achieving “wet-looking” water surfaces are highlighted, along with practical advice on using a palette knife for lily pads.

Chapter 7: Work on Nuances (25 min.)

Kami focuses on the finer details of the painting, particularly the lily pads. She emphasizes the importance of preparing mixes of the “average color” beforehand to streamline the painting process. This chapter is about appreciating and applying the subtle nuances of color that contribute to a cohesive yet dynamic composition.

Chapter 8: Build Up the Lights (48 min.)

Here, Kami moves on to enhancing the light reflections in the painting, inspired by a striking visual memory of sunlit clouds reflected on a pond. You’ll discover tips for keeping colors clean and vibrant, how to paint like you’re using warm, whipped butter, and brush techniques for creating atmospheric effects in the background.

Chapter 9: Refine (47 min.)

In the refinement stage, Kami adds ripples and further develops the atmospheric effects. She reiterates her favorite paint consistency and provides a guide on painting lily pad flowers, emphasizing the natural variations in color. This chapter covers the importance of restraint in making changes, the technique for adding sparkle to water, and how to maintain realistic reflections throughout the painting.

Chapter 10: Take It to Finish (19 min.)

Kami discusses the criteria for assessing the completion of the painting, including color harmony, the movement of the viewer’s eye, and the overall balance of elements within the composition. This chapter teaches you how to know when a painting is finished, focusing on harmony and the effectiveness of reflections and color notes.

Chapter 11: Final Review (6 min.)

In the final chapter, Kami reviews the painting, summarizing key learnings from the video. This wrap-up reinforces the concepts and techniques covered throughout the tutorial, ensuring you’re fully equipped to apply these insights to your own work with water scenes!

Though you can observe the techniques of any artist instantly by watching them demonstrate and by watching the videos repeatedly, please know that, though many artists offer insights that can help people overcome a lot of learning time, every artist learns at their own speed based on their own level of understanding. Painting and drawing bring great joy, though the joy may come from practicing various techniques over and over until you master them. We do not wish to indicate that you, or anyone, can skip the joy of practice and the challenges of getting better. Painting is a lifetime endeavor, and getting good does not typically happen rapidly, or instantly. Your results may vary. And please know that if at any time within 30 days you feel this video has not lived up to your expectations or its promise, we will happily refund your money.
