Learn How to Paint Mountains – Acrylic Painting Lesson by JM Lisondra


This will be the colors I am going to use
in this tutorial. White, phthalo blue, lamb black, medium yellow and burnt sienna.
Let’s start by sketching the shape of the mountain. I used burnt sienna for sketching.
Lets assume that there is a nearer and far mountains. And first we need to visualize
its look, shape and colors. Just draw it and make sure the top are irregulars. The horizon will be the base of the farthest mountain. Let’s mix the sky blue and paint over for
the sky. Let’s make it fast. Add clouds to it. And that’s it! We are now ready for the
mountains’ base colors. Let’s mix bluist gray like colors. As you
can see it, it almost like gray but its bluist. I don’t use pure blue. Start with the farthest
mountains. Just mix the darker
version of the farthest mountains. More blue and black then paint it all over
the sketch. Ok let it dry for about 15 to 30 minutes before adding the final touch. Now let’s paint the field. Mix yellow, white
and a little blue for it, then paint it all. You can play with the colors. Add a blue to make it greener or black or red to make it brown. Then let it dry. Let’s mix for the farthest mountain highlights.
Mix the white, little blue and little black. Make it more lighter. Let’s assume that the sun is in the left. So we put all the highlights on the left side of the mountains. Use a smaller brush, the pointed one to make the good details. For the nearer mountain, lets start the darker side detail. Mix a darker bluist gray color and add a little green and white. Just follow the color I create on screen. Then slowly tap the right side of the mountain. Paint it slowly. Don’t put it all. Make some spaces. Just imagine that we paint the trees. Then mix blue, yellow and burnt sienna and white to make the highlights. Tap the left side and use a flat brush. Just imagine that its forest. Slowly paint it but don’t put it all. Make some spaces. Don’t overdo. Ok, it looks like it’s been touch by sunlight. Add a little lighter color. To make it more visible. I add some mountain cliffs. Just mix a lighter color and paint. For finishing the painting I add nearer vegetations. And that’s all. You can now create a realistic mountains. Thank you for watching!
