This spectacular fall scenery combines several essential elements of Chinese landscape painting: foliage, structures, mist, and sky. The trick is to build up the composition in stages. Prepare a draft to serve as a guide and place it under your paper (see draft below). In Part 1 of this three part video lesson, you will learn how to paint the Pagoda. Please refer to the attached handout for additional instructions on materials, draft and color preparation, and other diagrams.
