How to Paint a Late Autumn Steam Train Real Time Acrylic Painting tutorial

Come along with me on a Late Autumn Steam Train painting adventure! 

This is a painting that could be set any where in time. I will show you step by step what to do. This is such a relaxing painting that explores steam, smoke, clouds, simple impressionistic plants and trees too. I hope you have as much fun as I did. (Traceable sketch on My Pinterest:

Everytime I pick up a paintbrush it will be a creative journey.I love exploring the world through the use of art. A couple things you should know: I am not a trained, professional painter. I have been doing some form of art or craft all my life and can't image going a day without doing something creative. :) I am currently loving the way painting relaxes me even when I sit down to a long painting session. I come away with a peaceful heart. My hope is that you will see that You can do this too! Acrylic painting is very forgiving. If something doesn't go right, let it dry and paint right over it. YOu can change your mind, take the painting in a different direction. It is all up to you and your creative spirit!

11"x14" stretched pre-gessoed canvas

The most important things you need to be successful with any of my projects are the willingness to learn and to be easy on yourself as you are learning. We tend to be our worst critics and we need to learn to be kind to ourselves. 

I love the community that we are building here. We are caring and supportive of all levels of crafters, makers and Artists.
