Welcome to the Online Video Tutorial for Waterside Cottage. Opposite is the reference image that we will be using to paint from, please feel free to print this image out if that helps you. Below is a brief description of the painting and what you can expect to learn from completing the tutorial. So please relax and enjoy this video tutorial.
A slightly more demanding painting although I’ve simplified the detail and blocked in most of the foliage with simple washes. The colour pallet has been kept limited. To keep the painting loose set yourself a time limit for the painting of around an hour.
In this exercise we are looking for lights and darks and over all shapes not slavishly following the photo. The object of the exercise is to loosen up. Have fun.
