This short video tutorial shows the sequence in which this particular artist uses to achieve a misty forest with breaking sunlight. He begins with the background using a selection of brushes to manipulate the acrylics keeping them a nice soft shade. He then comes on to the foreground where the darker colors are used to contrast with the hazy backdrop and give the impression of a misty morning. Narrated throughout, so easy to understand.
William (Bill) Alexander was born in 1915 in East Prussia. As a youth he put his artistic talents to paint murals and carriages for local aristocrats. After the war, Bill and his family immigrated to North America to pursue their dream of building a home and to share Bills gift of painting. He is probably one of the happiest artists on the planet. The video is very easy to follow and you can easily share his enthusiasm for painting. Some great techniques are used to achieve nice tonal values of natural light on the pathway and the trees.
