How to paint rain and fog – Acrylic painting w/ Lachri

Today I’m painting a very simple landscape to show you the basics of painting rain and fog. The techniques that I’m showing you can work with oil or acrylic paint. Then I will show you a clip of how I applied these techniques on an elephant painting!

I’m using Liquitex basics acrylic paint for these paintings and liquitex heavy body transparent mixing white for the fog. I’m working on a Fredrix watercolor canvas board for the landscape and a Fredrix Belgian Linen canvas for the elephants.

My reference photo for the elephants comes from Clare Smith over at
