In this workshop, follow Renato as he paints this Christmas village scene. He will guide you through each stage of the painting starting with the guide lines for drawing exploring composition, perspective, planes, expression and tonal values and colour. The painting process will commence with how to select your colours to create a Christmas Winter mood, the first layer preserving light and giving mood to the scene. Moving onto the second layer you will define the main shapes and planes and lastly add the detailed contrasting layer.
