Painting loose is widely considered a more challenging style to master.  Get some practice in by painting this American flag in a loose style.  You’ll learn how to paint loose on hot press paper, you’ll see how a painting can look like a mess and then still pull together in the end by strong repeating pattern elements, you’ll learn about painting with warm and cools, and you’ll learn how to paint beautiful light.  This is an hour long tutorial.  Enjoy!
