It’s been a long time since you’ve seen a video, huh?!? Yeah, I’m slacking! Well, no more! Time to get to work. And more to come….I promise.
Normally, I like to perform a step by step painting demo right in nature. It is so much more pleasant than an indoor studio, however I saw this magnificent breathtaking sunset as I was driving to Springfield, IL, two weeks ago and I only had time to click a quick picture. So this demo is done from a photo.
Here is the photo:
Here is a photo of the final painting:
Unfortunately the video has poor lighting, so the final (which was scanned in) looks much more vibrant. I am using new software so quality will improve with use.
I hope you are keeping up with your art. I hope you are playing and practicing. I hope you are taking time for yourself in this area. Life can be overwhelming most of the time, especially if you have a full time job and a family. You have to fight for your time. Fight for it. It will keep you healthy.

After many months of technical difficulties with my camera and such, I am FINALLY pleased to present this video series of Waterfall Glen. This was taken last August and will help you with your summertime watercolor sketches, dealing with that ever dreaded subject of too much “green” color. This was filmed during my MeetUp group: Chicagoland Sketchbook Hikers.

As you may already know, Let’s Paint Nature has been running for two years. The primary goal of this site is to offer free art lessons in the hopes of helping people become closer to nature. As of today, the “Learn How” page has 49 free step by step painting demonstrations. Yesss!
We’re going to take it one step further…
I do not have the equipment, but I have arranged for a camera person who has the equipment to start taking and editing video of short hikes and painting demonstrations and do it on a very low budget.
To keep this site running with many free lessons, I’m asking for the help of those who are able, to make a donation for camera production time and art supplies. If you enjoy this site and the demonstrations are helpful to you, please consider making a small donation. Donations of $10 or more will receive a free bookmark of their choice. Please leave your email info when donating so I can contact you. Your name (optional) or company logo will be listed on the video that was sponsored and also appear on the video page of this site.
Donations of any amount can be made by clicking the button to the right.
I believe it will be much easier for the viewer to follow along if they watch the demonstration instead of just reading the demonstration. That’s why I’m very excited about this project. Not only will you learn how to paint nature, but you will learn about nature as well and see it from the comfort of your own home! Cool Beans!!!
