Oak Country Lane

This is a simple yet very educational DVD Art Workshop.  You'll sit beside Linda as she paints this scene and explains every step along the way.

First, it's painted in grisaille to create 3 dimensional form and establish light and shade.  Then a lengthy discussion about color harmony where Linda explains many aspects of how to choose, organize and master the color application over grisaille.

Next comes the Pure Color Glazing painting demonstrations as you sit and watch closely while Linda explains every step she is doing and why so you will understand her thought process while painting.

After the colors of atmosphere are in place, then it's a short journey with "local colors" to complete the project.

Then each element is finished, one by one, starting with the distant trees and hillside where the goal is to keep the trees nestled in the misty atmosphere where they belong.  The road is deeply rutted where wagon wheels have rolled down the lane for many years.  Little tufts of grass grow randomly between the ruts and the sunlight dances across the contour of the path creating interest and realism.  Then comes the huge oak tree with twisted trunk and sprawling limbs.  You'll watch as this scene comes together in front of your eyes. 

In this Art Workshop in a Box you'll receive 2 art education DVDs so you can watch every brushstroke Linda applies to canvas as she explains why and how she does everything.  You'll also receive a CD containing traceable pattern in 2 sizes,  richly illustrated written instructions with step by step photographs, a lesson about canvas preparation, graytone mixing instructions and how to lay out the grisaille palette, color mixing chart. This is a wonderful Art Workshop that you won't want to miss!   Retail Price:  $45   



Mountain Meadow

Vast depth of field is achieved in this beautiful scene, from the far distant hazy mountains to the oak-covered hillside, and then coming forward, the golden grassy fields and the big shade tree in the foreground.  You'll enjoy this journey with paint and brush as you learn many valuable painting techniques and concepts. 

This Art Workshop in a Box comes complete with painting demonstrations filmed from start to finish where Linda shows you the techniques and brushwork, and she explains why and how she is doing everything as you are watching the painting demonstrations. You'll watch her create the grisaille art work first, then apply pure color glazes to add the color, and finish with opaque color accents. 

Also included is a CD with richly illustrated written instructions, including step by step photographs, graytone chart with mixing instructions, canvas prep instructions, Color Chart, and traceable pattern.   Retail Price:  $45
