Boy Standing by the River

In this lesson, "Boy Standing by the River", Ginger shows you how to work with strong colors and many layers to achieve this very impressionistic fall painting.

Ginger first finished the painting without the boy, so you will have the same opportunity to stop at that point or challenge yourself a little more by adding the young man to complete this painting.
