A Bright Winter's Day

A Bright Winter's Day

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 :)
