Peaceful Garden DVD Art Workshop

This charming scene was created by Linda Coulter from her original photograph of a stone footbridge found in Rhode Island.  You'll notice by comparing the two that Linda has arched the bridge a bit more than the original and she has enhanced the gently flowing stream beneath the bridge to enable facilitate a gentle curve and the possibility of reflecting the stonework from the bridge and also the shimmering lights.  She added four lanterns, on on each cornerstone, to bring a lifelike quality to the scene. These simple changes were made to create a romantic quality in the art work.

In this Art Workshop in a Box, you'll learn how to romanticize a scene with color, atmosphere and light. Discover Linda's easy way of creating soft misty atmosphere to provide a romantic ambience in the landscape. You'll receive the technique DVD plus a CD containing a traceable pattern, reference photographs, written instructions, gray tone chart, how to set up a gray tone palette, canvas prepping instructions and the Master Color Mix Chart which enables you to paint your garden in your favorite colors or to coordinate with your home decor.  Retail:  $45                    


Picket Garden

This garden will charm your heart and excite you as you learn easy ways to paint pristine white pickets in your garden scenes. Linda teaches two different methods, using simple tools.   Perhaps the best part of this DVD art workshop is learning how to "romanticize" your garden with soft gentle atmosphere that envelopes the fence in the distance to provide contrast to the crisp picket fence in the foreground with draped foliage.  You'll learn a very easy way to paint stone and keep it in perspective. Painting hydrangeas and other flowers are featured in this DVD art workshop, and a 2nd DVD teaches how to paint additional kinds of garden flowers. The 3rd DVD teaches valuable lessons in how to make slight adjustments in color value, temperature and intensity to keep color in perfect balance.
