This video has three step-by-step demonstrations that celebrate color with easy to follow techniques that will enable you to paint whatever subject you choose.
Lesson 1: This lesson has no boundaries. This style of painting is an integration of a soft, very abstract background with a precise interpretation of your subject that ultimately gives your painting a “loose” look. The more planning and drawing, the more freedom you will have to interpret the background colors later.
Lesson 2: This Poppies lesson has a superimposed shape to add an exciting challenge for design possibilities. Each flower is a “mini-portrait” and the background is a spontaneous and out of focus abstract painting
Lesson 3: This composition shows the benefits of planning ahead. The drawing is as much fun to conceive as it is to paint.
