New Year 2018 Best Wishes to all for a good one!

Happy New Year everyone!

In my last post on this blog, I promised that I would post some tips to accompany the book.  So I thought I’d start with this project.  In the book you get an A4 tracing to help you along if you wish.

How do you get that misty effect in the background with the trees and branches showing up as shadowy shapes?

I’ve made a short video to demo that technique.


Of course the daffodils would be masked out  with masking fluid in front of this woodland area.  You could then paint this boldly without worrying about spoiling your flowers.

More tips soon!
