About This Class

This is a winter scene depicting a partly frozen lake with a small island with trees and the tree lined banks in the distance. The demonstration is in two parts which I have joined together. You will need to allow for drying time.

I have painted four different versions of this painting and the most exciting thing is the difference between them all when I use a different shade of blue.

I have used Prussian blue and in this one Cerulean blue just o see how it would turn out.

The most important thing is to makes sure you leave plenty of white areas (which would be the snow) on the lake area. I would have liked more on this one.

The one I like the most is the first one I painted ( see below). This is no doubt because it was spontaneous and I didn't overthink the process. I have posted more of the same subject in the class project.

Why choose one of my courses?

Because, as a self taught artist I understand how a lot of people feel about their creative work, sometimes anxious, sometimes overwhelmed and often that it's not 'good enough'.

Here's a bit about me.
