Paint four seasons of the Tuscan Landscape!

In this 4-week course we will paint a landscape in 4 different color palettes ; Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

I will provide a photo of a landscape but if you have one your own you would like to use, that is great. I will demonstrate using the subject I provide for you, with a limited palette of colors for each season, and change the foliage accordingly.

For example, fields of poppies in spring, sunflowers in the summer, golden autumn leaves in fall, and lavender shadows on snow covered hills in Winter….

I will explain the importance of understanding the complementary color wheel and how it makes your paintings come alive!

Acrylic paint is very versatile and is the perfect medium for a beginner and accomplished painter as well.

Please join me as we enjoy our Virtual travels to Tuscany with our paint brush and canvas in hand.

We will start out with Winter and see how much color is in WHITE !!!

Message from the instructor, Lynn Stender:

Are you ready to bundle up and travel to Tuscany with me? Please see the subject below that we will be painting. Print it out so you can follow along with my Demo.
We are using Acrylic Paint.   I will go over the Color wheel and the limited palette we will be using to create our  Winter Landscape. The basic colors you will need are:  (starter sets are great if this is your first time using Acrylics.)
  • Titanium White
  • Black/ Paynes Grey
  • Cadmium Yellow
  • Cerulean Blue
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Cobalt Blue
  • Cadmium Red
  • Sap Green
  • Alizarin Crimson
  • Camium red
  • Burnt Umber
  • Raw Umber
I will be working on a small Canvas, 8 x 10 or 11 x 14. What ever size you are comfortable with is fine.
I use a set of Acrylic Brushes, which include a 1/2 flat, 1/4 flat, 3 rounds, #6, #8, #12.  Please have two containers of water, paper towels or paint rags. I use a Masterson covered palette with a sponge to keep my paints wet. If you don’t have a palette, paper plates or palette paper pads will work.  There are many starter sets available on line, , or Amazon. Liqutex, and Golden brands have complete sets.
