Walk through and impasto painting
Since I have been painting quite a bit, I thought I would show you a little walk through of how a quick impasto painting goes. I have a great book called Barron's Easel series acrylic painting It has been such a wonderful and helpful tool to keeping your skills up.
It has you do a quick sketch and gives you some basic guidelines on how to do the painting. I must say, that you do have to improvise and fall back on previous skill level to complete the way that it is shown in the picture, but fun none the less.
Once you follow through with the walk through you end up with a finished picture. Since it is a basic method book I do add my own knowledge to my painting to give it a more realistic look, but even for beginners, I think you would enjoy it.
