Lesson: Dense Foliage
Take a step by step mini-workshop from Lindy Cook Severns and learn to paint dense foliage in soft pastels. Photos and text explanations take you through the thought process behind painting this dense rocky mountain forest as well as the materials and techniques the Texas landscape painter uses.
This digital art lesson also includes an art image of Lindy's finished pastel painting, plus the artist's reference photo for you to work from. Your downloadable painting class includes an invitation to email Lindy any questions you may encounter as you paint.
The lesson covers painting a dense forest of aspen and fir trees lining a mountain stream, and ends before the water and foreground are added. Running water and rocks are subjects complex enough to warrant their own separate lessons.
This Lindy Cook Severns Pastel Painting Class is formatted for viewing on your computer screen or for printing*. Return to it again and again as you gain confidence painting in soft pastels.
* Printed images will not be as high a resolution as the original art, and depending on your printer, colors may not be as true. We suggest you also save the lesson in your computer documents to refer back to, even if you make a printed copy.
