About This Class

In this class I will show you how to draw a difficult shape, like a boat, using my favorite drawing technique called the Box Method.

Then I will show you how to paint the boat within a sun filled landscape scene. I use various impressionist techniques to create the light and sparkling effect in the scene.

You will also see how to add life to the scene with a figure PLUS the use of aerial perspective to give the scene depth.

I use these techniques everyday in my studio or outdoors. You can use the same methods to achieve a lovely painting in the impressionist genre.

I hope that you enjoy the class and try out the techniques in your own painting.
