Painting a mixed media landscape triptych on ARTiful, painting demos by Sandrine Pelissier

French countryside- Triptych mixed media painting tutorial

The Anonymous Art Show is a great concept, this exhibition is organised by the North Vancouver Arts council consist of 641  8x 8 inches paintings.

No artist name or title is visible and all the paintings are at the same price of 100 dollars . So this is a great mix of artist that could be well-known or just starting and people will choose what painting to buy only by looking at the work itself: a great idea!
