In this lesson I use a reference photo to take the elements I like the most and create a painting from it. I’ll show you how you can create your own work of art using pieces of a photo. This acrylic painting lesson will take you through each step of the way as I create some beautiful aspen trees with loose brush strokes. We will create a bank with water beneath, and some subtle reflections. This lesson is great for those who need to loosen up their style a bit.
