This lesson will come out on 8/17/2019. In this lesson I will take you through painting an impressionistic forest scene. We will use loose brush strokes, vibrant color and contrast to create a beautiful forest setting with a winding road taking us through the scenery.
Directional Brush Strokes?
Want to work on looser brush strokes and color mixing? This one is for you! This scene allows you to work on details and staying loose at the same time. Learn how to create contrast with cool and warm colors, and create light with varying values.
For this lesson I use an 11 X 14 inch canvas. You can use a larger or smaller size if you’d like!
Colors used: Cadmium Yellow Medium, Ultramarine Blue, Brilliant Blue (can substitute cerulean if you prefer), burnt sienna, raw umber, titanium white, Alizarin Crimson, Dioxazine Purple (any purple will work well for this lesson)
All brushes used are from my 14 piece brush set
You’ll also receive a high quality reference photo of this scene for you to go by, cropped to size. Access is online (DVD customers also have access to the online lesson immediately after purchase)
