The scene where this lesson takes place is known for its single live oak tree, but Stapleton will reveal its “gremlins”. Gremlins are foreseeable design problems that you need to look out for. You will learn to control your color while painting landscapes from life. This lesson includes a tour of Movalli Gallery, focusing on the work of Charles Movalli.
