Be Inspired to Paint!


Watch a short preview and/or the first 30 minutes from a full length tutorial in oils with Elizabeth Robbins which will give you a glimpse into what to expect from Inspired to Paint

In this lesson we paint Autumn Beauty Sunflowers which are a mix of colors along with my jade jar, brass bowl and some apples and grapes.   I painted mine on a 24 x 24 C15 Linen canvas that had been toned the night before with Raw Umber and Neo Megilp.  I wanted to paint a complicated painting and show you how I would take a painting to a gallery ready finish.  If this painting is a bit intimidating I would suggest taking just a portion of the photo and painting it.  Just paint a few of the sunflowers or paint the green apples with the brass plate behind it.
