In this full-length video lesson, viewers learn how to paint a dramatic bird's nest
scene. To create this background, we use the FolkArt Blending Gel
which allows for more time to get the painting just right before it dries; a dry brushing technique; and we're also introduced to palette knife painting.
This painting lesson dives into the hardest part first, challenging painters to accomplish a seamless gradation of color from dark to light. Andy Jones, Content Editor of our online educational program, Let's Paint
, expertly guides the most inexperience painters through a piece they would be proud to call their own.
