Rainy Day In Wasdale - Video On Demand Watercolour Workshop


Today’s workshop painting is called ‘Rainy Day In Wasdale’!

This has to be probably one of the lake districts most iconic landscapes. It has been photographed and painted countless times and crops up in virtually every magazine, website or book even remotely linked to the lake district.

Which is why you should definitely have a go at painting it!

So are we tempting fate a little here? I mean an iconic scene like this has to be just so… Doesn’t it?… Neh!  Wrong you can change things to suit yourself and the painting even with a scene as iconic as this one.

Aren’t us artists a lucky bunch, it’s like playing god with the landscape!

Don’t believe me well how about you do the workshop today then show someone who you know is a fan of the lake district and ask them where it is - I can almost guarantee that they will give you the correct answer!

One little twist in this workshop is that the usual route with lots of new painters is to paint something like this with the predictable pretty blue sky… So, that’s exactly why I’m going to show you how to paint it when it’s raining - after all this is the lake district - it rains here a lot!

Yup in this watercolour workshop I will show you some fantastic techniques to paint not only stormy skies & majestic mountains but also some creative ways to portray the famous lake district weather. Changing the weather is just one way that you can add a unique twist to a scene that has been painted to death and make it your own! Here’s how you do that in style!



Every workshop comes with 24-7 ONLINE LIFETIME ACCESS and can be viewed on basically any device that has an internet connection from your mobile phone right up to your smart T.V.

I want everyone who takes the workshop to be happy so I provide a full 14-day money back guarantee.

If for any reason I can’t resolve your issue I will happily provide a full refund back to your method of payment.  (Please note refunds can take between 3-10 days to process depending on the payment method used.)


First of all for these workshops you will need your eyes & ears I always encourage students to watch the workshop first and then have a go because I record most of these workshops in just one take so any mistakes or adjustments I may make to get to the final painting are included - this way you learn more.

More importantly though I always encourage students who are new to me to approach these workshops with an open mind!

While I always try to encourage students to use their own materials I know that some of you prefer to use the same as the tutor as it is one less thing to think about. Especially when you may be trying out some new techniques. So below you will find a complete list of the materials I used to produce the painting in this workshop:


1 x Sheet of Watercolour Paper (I used Bockingford 425gsm ROUGH 1/4 Imperial [38 x 28cm])

If you need to you can purchase paper directly from me here:


I use Daniel Smith extra fine watercolours as quite frankly they are in my opinion the best on the planet however I know that some of you may not have access to these so where appropriate I have included a substitute colour that may be more readily available to you.

Suggested Colours: Naples Yellow, Quinacridone Gold, Paynes Grey, Burnt Sienna, Lavender, Isoindoline Yellow (sub’ Cadmium Orange), Bloodstone Genuine, Indigo

If you fancy getting yourself a few tubes of these fantastic watercolours you can find the colours I use here:


All of my brushes are made by Rosemary Brush Co who hand-make some of the finest brushes in the world. Below you will find a list of the ones I have used for this particular workshop.

  • 1 1/2″ Flat Brush
  • 1/2″ Flat Brush
  • Squirrel Hair Mop (Size 6)
