In this step by step lesson you will learn to paint a lighthouse, you will learn what colors to use, and what brushes to use for the best effects. If you decide to do all lessons you will have a finished painting, I will do 30 minute segments so you can pick and choose what you would like to learn..that way you can put together your own finished painting.
Tip: If you use the same canvas for the lessons you choose, you will beable to do a finished painting, so if you do the sky, then do an ocean, then a lighthouse on the same canvas, you will have a full painting in 3 lessons.
