In this lesson I'll show you how to achieve the subtly in light and colour needed to accurately recreate this delicate landscape scene. I love the light in this painting with the contrast of the cool greens in the grass and the warm light in the morning sky. This scene may seem a little daunting for some of you because of the softness and smooth gradients of colour but it's not as difficult as it looks. Give it a go and see just how easy it is!
