The Official Michael James Smith painting school. - 40 lessons in Michael's own art school - New lesson added every month! Learn to paint with me on my ONE AND ONLY online painting school. Enjoy 40 full length, real time painting video tutorials. New lesson added every month. From beginner to advanced. Paint along with me to learn the techniques to produce realistic landscape, portrait and still life paintings.
In this lesson I'll show you how to achieve the subtly in light and colour needed to accurately recreate this delicate landscape scene. I love the light in this painting with the contrast of the cool greens in the grass and the warm light in the morning sky. This scene may seem a little daunting for some of you because of the softness and smooth gradients of colour but it's not as difficult as it looks. Give it a go and see just how easy it is!
