Learn How to Paint BEACH FLIGHT KITE with Acrylic – Paint and Sip at Home – Step by Step Tutorial

VIDEO DESCRIPTION This painting tutorial will take you through easy to follow, step-by-step instructions on how to paint this summer inspired coastal image of “BEACH FLIGHT KITE” with a stunning dusk glow in the sunset sky that is reflecting in the shallow water of the waves rolling into the shore while a young girl runs with her colorful kite in hopes of catching the last good wind to set her kit in flight. You’ll learn simple painting techniques that will help you to create this realistic piece of art with a woman with long wavy hair wearing a flowing white beach dress running through the beach sand with sand dunes just beyond her path. Holding onto her brightly striped cloth kite, she’ll soon let go of it and set it free like a beautiful bird. You’ll learn to draw basic outline of a female figure that gives form and shape to the body beneath the clothes. With a dry brush technique you’ll learn how to create dimension and reflections on the water with subtle blending of the surrounding colors and properly placed highlights and shadows. The strong posture of this girl and the flow of her dress, hair and fabric in the kite and movement to this painting that make you want to run along side her during this warm summer evening. Inspired by my desire to run on the beach in Cape Cod right now hoping that a warm summer breeze will be be right around the corner! You’ll learn to paint this realistic landscape with depth and contrast. Using only 2 brushes and 7 colors we’ll create this conversational masterpiece inspired by bright summer colors and warm atmospheric dimension that is sure to bring lively energy on the wall of any home. So let’s get painting and let’s get sipping!
