The Art of Nicholas Hankins - Friday Afternoon Hike - Part 1

Have you ever visited Silver Falls State Park in Oregon? It's a beautiful and inspirational setting, particularly to the artist. In this video, Nic will share techniques for creating the dramatic landscape of the pacific northwest from a photograph taken while teaching in Silver Falls State Park.

This video details the process of "under-painting" light and dark values using acrylic paints to establish the major compositional elements of the painting before continuing work in oils. Part 2 will feature completion of "Friday Afternoon Hike" with oil paints. For information about Nic and his current teaching schedule, please visit!
