Class Description

Here we have a small Pohutukawa tree off the side of the embankment. We have a nice beach scene with stretches into the distance. We will paint this one as the eye sees it and not as the camera sees it. Curious? The camera normally has everything in focus  in a landscape, while the eye can only focus on one small section at a time.

In this lesson you will learn:

1.  How to find the focal point
2.  How to simplify the distant trees
3.  How to paint the sea
4.  How to paint the tree
5. How to paint the beach and add small details
