Painting Dappled Light with Shanna Kunz

This is a short preview from a 2 hour and 35 minute art lesson with Shanna Kunz.   This demonstration is all about painting dappled light and making the light bring your attention to the tree.  We are working on a 16×12 oil on a new linen panel for me – Senso linen.  We will use the notanizer app to simplify the composition  and talk about shape placement and dropping the values down just a bit to really accentuate the light.
