That early morning mist in the mountains, specially just after the sun has made it presence visible, can be very refreshing indeed. Also, just watching the swirling of the mist, can be very relaxing and stilling to the mind.

In this Lesson you will learn:

1 How to add distance to the painting
2 How to paint the deep shadows
3 How to add the sunlit cliffs
4 How to indicate the mistiness

Latest Reviews

I have watched this lesson a few times now and it is very well laid out and explained. The only suggestion I could make to improve it would be to show the palette of colours you would be using, perhaps just a photo along with the handouts.


Thank you very much! This class was very informative to me! I am making my first steps in pastel and in art in general and started from learning pastel myself with Internet help a year ago.

I signed up for these Online Classes and this is my very first video tutorial so far! I love it
