Sunday Studio Time: Intimate Autumn Landscape Demo Youtube Video

I was so inspired that I had to get down into my studio to paint. The chores had to wait. Once I am home from a trip often life gets in the way of inspiration. This time I didn't let it! I threw in the laundry and immediately downloaded the photos from my New England and Canada cruise.

Once in the studio a printed put a few photos and pulled out my pastel palette for the intimate autumn landscape that begged to be painted. I thought it would be fun to paint live so we set up the iPhone to do a Facebook Live video of my painting. I had no idea how the painting would turn out but my goal was to show you how I respond to inspiration. Everything gets put on hold until I paint!

The photo above was my inspiration. You can watch the video demo here on my YouTube channel.

Karen , What is the best way to establish darks in a painting? You have the perfect touch.

Thanks! I don't know the best way but my favorite way is to layer several dark colors of the same value in the very beginning layers. This seems to work for me!
