Dahlia Fields Painting

Follow along with Susan to create a vibrant landscape painting rich with texture. Start by creating a sketch and applying pastel ground to your surface anywhere extra texture is desired. Use watercolors to create an underpainting, laying down large, flat, simple shapes. Once dry, refine shapes with a pastel pencil. Finally, use pastels to reinforce shapes and value, adding color, highlights, and details as you paint.
