How to Paint a Country Road in the Forest | Acrylic

Painting foreground details such as leaves and foliage can be time consuming. However with a little extra work to shade in the areas first, prior to the detail, it can be done a lot easier.

In this video I show you how to paint this country road through the autumn forest. I detail how to paint the leaves on the ground, the highlights and shadows, as well as the gravel on the road.
