Q&A

This week is a tutorial all about fine stems. A project worth doing to improve your brush skills. Make time to practice and have some spare paper handy.

In painting this I hope to show you how to be freer with your drawing and paint fine stems with a little more confidence. Grass is a wild and willowy subject and a little time is needed to ascertain the structure, in this project I show you the process I use and how I try to capture the movement of the plant. Why not add some grasses to some other projects to create a wild bouquet.

Available to watch right now with our monthly and annual paid subscription plans.
