I always wanted to paint a fall foliage scene, however time i tried, i ended up with something muddy or too dark. This was a fun painting project. Thank you.
Clear instructions, great set up and exciting to watch.

The luminosity of watercolors is what fascinates and draws me to this medium. I like to paint atmospheric watercolors and continually try to stretch the boundaries of watercolor, sometimes using other media to create interesting textures in my watercolors. I look forward to sharing my techniques with you here on Skillshare.
