Join artist Jenna Silander in this beautiful acrylic painting lesson Touch The Sky. Jenna will show you how to create this masterful forest scene with a great perspective. Imagine walking through a thick forest on a warm summer day. You walk into a slight clearing and the sun appears and gently warms your face. You stop, taking a moment to look up at the deep blue sky. The trees seem to go on forever, at they reach up into the clouds. A pair of birds fly by as you gaze and connect with nature.
In this painting lesson Jenna will show you each step in creating this calming scene. From mixing the color to applying the paint, she will leave no stone unturned. You’ll learn how to create this perspective, how to create the depth you need to make it look real, and then how to detail and layer every brush stroke to complete the painting.

We hope you join Jenna and paint your own version of Touch the Sky.
