Painted on a specially toned canvas, called "verdaccio", this design goes together remarkably easy and fast.

You'll learn how to paint expressive eyes, soft flesh tones, red velvet hat, plush fur trim and ball on Santa's hat, soft flowing hair and thick beard.

What you'll learn in this seminar ...

This is your very special opportunity to paint your very own house portrait set in a soft romantic setting with special lighting effects of your choice.  Choose the season and Linda will help you from start to finish.  We'll paint in grisaille first to create the basic scene, then if you wish to add color, that will be done with pure color glazes that are transparent so you'll see every brushstroke of paint previously applied to your canvas.  This gentle color is then enhanced with delicate semi-glazes to create the special romantic ambiance.  Final accents of opaque color complete the design.
