The Official Michael James Smith painting school. - 40 lessons in Michael's own art school - New lesson added every month! Learn to paint with me on my ONE AND ONLY online painting school. Enjoy 40 full length, real time painting video tutorials. New lesson added every month. From beginner to advanced. Paint along with me to learn the techniques to produce realistic landscape, portrait and still life paintings.
As with many of my tutorials, the decision to paint a subject has been a request from either one of our art school students or YouTube subscribers. The subject of this lesson is the result of so many requests, from direct emails to social media comments, across the board. I looked at many reference photos in the pursuit of just the right scene and settled upon this one for a few reasons. Firstly, I like the fact that there is a good range of colour throughout, there is good depth from front to back and finally it’s strong compositionally. I’m really happy with the final result of my painting and it was fun to film and paint for you. You’ll learn a lot with this one and I think you’re going to enjoy it too.

Brushes used in this lesson: Michael James Smith Professional Brush Set
In August 2019 Michael switched brush manufacturers and as a result the series numbers/names are different in some of the lessons. In order to be able to complete the lessons regardless of which set you’re using we have put together a chart which lists the equivalent brushes from both sets.
