Landscape Painting Video: Forest Spirit

A painting video demo of painting a forest, done on location.

Watch the Painter's Key artist, Robert Genn, (www.painterskeys.com) as he paints a forest on location. The video starts by setting the scene in the location, how the painter organizes himself, then moves up closer so you can clearly see what's happening on the canvas. Notice how a mahl stick is used when painting detail to keep the artist's hand steady and off the still-wet oil paint. (And wouldn't it be handy if modern cars have boots that could serve as an outdoor studio like this!)
