Value Study of a Cube – – Needs editing

Lesson Outcome

In this lesson we will work on a simple landscape painting, you will begin to use the paint in a free and impressionistic way (next month will be a realist piece) by the end of this lesson you will feel more confident in beginning to paint in a loose way. I don’t want you to worry about the end result but to enjoy the process.

If you would prefer to select a different landscape, or different subject entirely you can visit: for royalty free images to use.
