How To Paint Mountains

How To Paint Mountains

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.

Good luck,
Michael
