Discover how to paint a beautifully, dappled wood in the heart of Autumn, along side of a professional artist and instructor, Peter John Reid. 

Peter John Reid is an artist highly revered for his good-humoured, practical and genuinely helpful teaching methods. His beautifully intelligent acrylic paintings -- sometimes striking, sometimes soft -- smear the edges of Realism and Impressionism.
