How To Loosen Up With Painterly Edges

Do you find yourself asking the question, “How do I loosen up my painting?” I think we’ve all asked ourselves this question at one time or another. This lesson is my response to your question, empowering you to move toward a more painterly approach in your work by focusing on one specific technique—Edges.  

In this paint along demonstration of an apple, we’ll deploy a rich variety of edges, allowing for a more painterly expression of this subject. Be sure to download your “Painterly Edges Resource Guide” so you can paint along with me. In it, you’ll find a reference photograph, painting examples related to the lesson and clear supportive definitions for each type of edge that we’ll cover in this lesson. It’s going to be great fun to explore this lesson together! Are you ready to paint?
