This simple tutorial resembles Edward Hopper’s Lighthouse Hill painting. The simple home and lighthouse are easy to draw, which also makes for easy painting. If you have students that are ready to add shadows to their work, this tutorial is a great place to start.

And as always, real watercolor paper will make the paint colors look their best.

  2. Draw guide lines on paper.
  3. Follow the tutorial to lightly draw the landscape with a pencil. (No marker tracing this time.)
