Spring is here and it is a perfect time for a Spring themed painting. I recently visited the lovely village of Bathurst in the Eastern Cape. We stopped by their famous Farmer's Market which is set in a stunning garden filled with flowers, trees and of course the market stalls here and there. I picked a scene to paint which also forms the subject of this month's lesson in my course How to Loosen Up Your Painting.
The course is already extensive with many demonstration of various subjects. Different techniques and use of brushwork have been demonstrated. But I do think that a step-by-step lesson about the decision making process through the painting would be useful.
This lesson is not the usual watch-me-paint style. Instead I have used a series of slides showing stages of the painting. Each to illustrate a certain decision that had to be made. Plus the steps taken to follow the concept or make adjustments. Sometimes errors needed correcting. Painting is a dynamic process and does not always go to plan. You need to be able to take this into your stride and adapt.
A Balanced Course
The course has evolved over the past year. I think it is more balanced and will have something to offer the beginner and intermediate artist. Check out the course for yourself and preview some of the lessons.
I have also started a private Facebook group for my art course members where we can have more interaction, share painting progress and Q&A sessions with me. All course members can join at any time.
Watch the trailer below. I hope that you enjoy the new lesson!
