Light as a Focal Point

Create a focal point in your landscape paintings by incorporating light! Watch as Jed demonstrates how to place light within an outdoor scene to draw interest and direct the viewer’s eye. Learn to mix a limited palette of acrylic colors so that your light source appears as natural as possible, while at the same time creating contrast and helping to focus the overall composition of your painting. Once you’ve mastered this fundamental technique, there’s no limit to the creative possibilities.
