A Bright Winter's Day - Advanced Level 3

A Bright Winter's Day - Advanced Level 3

There are some interesting parts to this scene which are fun to paint, when you know what you’re doing! The two things I’m asked most often are, “how can I paint realistic water” and “how do I paint realistic shadows”. As you can see, shadows feature heavily in this painting and in this lesson you’ll learn the most effective technique to make them look real. I love the bright, warm colours in this scene and it’s always nice to have man-made elements blending with the beauty of nature.

Happy painting :)
