New Zealand artist Richard Robinson critiques some student paintings from his online workshop and demonstrates key points with his own painting
Here’s a scene just down the road from my house in New Zealand, right on the main highway. Most people will speed past it without a second glance but to me this is a beautiful little scene just waiting to be painted. Follow me step by step as I show you the techniques I use to paint this rustic country scene—simplifying a subject, creating glowing light, using edge variety and much more are all demonstrated in the video on my website.
In every issue of in 2016 we will feature a Painting Workshop, including comprehensive student critiques, from one of New Zealand’s best artists.
Feel free to follow me in painting the same scene or use the photos below or your own resources to design a piece that is more your own. You can paint this any size or shape you like using any medium. Happy painting!
