09-17-2010, 11:45 AM
In this 51-minute artistsnetwork.tv (www.artistsnetwork.tv) video workshop, from artist Michael Chesley Johnson, you'll paint a sunny distant rocky mountain and foreground foliage, focusing on light and dark contrasts and rich color. Michael's relaxed and thorough teaching style leads you through every step--initial sketch, establishing color values and shapes, underpainting, restating and refining—to capture a landscape filled with lovely passages of lights and varieties of texture.

In this preview you'll add a simple pattern of lights and darks to the rocks and trees to establish their form and dimension.
