Learn to paint an Italian garden in the style of the impressionists

I'll demonstrate how to paint with bold brushstrokes as well as how to balance a wide array of colors and values.

With my palette visible during the entire demonstration, I'll show you how to mix a wide variety of greens which is a big challenge for landscape painters.

I'll also show you how to mix and balance the brightly colored flowers in the sun and shadow.

Lastly, I'll show you how to paint a bright blue sky with atmospheric perspective and gorgeous, uplifting clouds.

Your painting will sparkle with life!

What students say

Not too long ago I moved from NH to CA. Took 6 months to get my house organized and bingo we were under “house arrest" for the virus and I hadn’t painted in almost a year and lost my creativity. I looked on "‘Bold Brush” and found a class listed as “paint the California desert” I liked the painting that advertised the class and when I spoke to Kristen I knew it was a go. I’m a moderately experienced painter and loved watching Kristen demonstrate and talk about what she was doing. I understood what she was saying and learned about round brushes and how to use them. I love to watch Kristen's brush work. It makes me want to paint. Not only that, she has a sense of humor, is refreshing easy to talk to, and loves to teach.


I have been following Kristen’s fun video lessons one after another on teachable for a while. With her teaching I learned how to mix vibrant impressionistic colors and brushstrokes. Paint along with her is always fun and enjoyable.
