Sunset Across the Lake
This class introduces color mixing, blending, and creating reflections as you paint a glowing sunset over water, with the sun setting behind the mountains. Each painting is unique since some students prefer a bold, bright sky, while others prefer a more pastel look. Peggy will talk and demonstrate how to use the brushes and mix colors to achieve a beautiful sunset.
