Learn To Paint A Winter Stream Landscape

An added bonus is that snow covered fields set up dramatic value contrasts with almost every other element in the scene.

This lesson shows how to paint a frozen winter stream landscape scene. There is a focus on creating an eye-catching, interlocked composition showing warm glowing light.
