With her step-by-step approach, professional artist and painting instructor Anne-Marie Esson takes the intimidation out of a blank canvas. In PAINTING WITH ANNE-MARIE, she encourages beginning and advanced students to tap into their inherent artistic ability and create stylish works of art. Over the course of two episodes, Anne-Marie creates an oil-based painting from start to finish. Her subject matter, drawn from her memory, photographs and outdoor locations, includes vibrant landscapes, seascape vistas and floral arrangements. In every episode, she details the entire five-step paint-application process — which incorporates color washes, shadows and highlights — while providing advice and creative exercises for inspiration.
