Learn how to paint realistic grasses, clouds, rocks, fields, and believable leafy deciduous trees through trade secret effects: splattering, spongework, layering, masking... make natural colours through specific colour recipes. Note that this is an intensive skill building workshop - we will not be re-creating a photo or painting.
