About This Class

Welcome to my class, How to Paint an Abstract Landscape (the easy way)!

In this class I teach you how to paint an abstract country landscape from a simple sketch.  This class is for beginners.  I walk you through the whole painting process step by step.  I show you how to sketch your image onto your canvas, block in your colors, and add details.

All of the supplies I used for this class are listed below along with my original sketch and painting so you have images to refer to. Feel free to use my sketch and painting as a reference or use your own image and sketch.  Either way, I would love to see what you create!  To share your painting with me and the other students in this class, you can click on the "create project" tab in the Projects & Resources section and upload a photo of what you painted. 

Supplies I used:
8x10 canvas
pastels
paint brushes
palette paper (a paper plate works, too)
clean water
paper towels
acrylic paint (colors and brands listed below)
