Then through step-by-step demonstrations, you’ll discover how to develop a complete studio painting with the depth of color and values.
You’ll learn about mingling beautiful earth tones, capturing translucent light and colorful shadows, and explore brushwork to add strata lines and texture to the stonework. Painting these stone cathedrals connects you with nature and helps you see it with the artist’s eyes. Sign up for both “Dramatic Landscapes” lessons and receive a bonus video lesson.
