LVS Learning to Paint

Have started a course at LVS
Instructor Dia Spriggs

Hope with the help of these lessons I will become more familiar with the media and what I can do.

Lesson 1

Making a blended sky and making clouds using the dry brush technique. I found this a bit difficult because I am not quite used to painting wet on wet.. we also made sets of mountains and a bit of foreground.

Blue Sky



Orange Sky



Both were done in oils on 8"x11" 400 gram paper that was coated with 3 acrylic layers. Clicking on the images brings up a larger format.
