How to Create a Landscape Painting, Part 1

Capture the natural beauty in a landscape painting

You will be given the tips and tools to create a landscape painting that you will be proud of: Draw the viewer to your painting, by learning how to create a focal point, and where to place it. Plus you will know where to place the horizon, where the sky meets the earth.

Using the 3 simple landscaping elements; the foreground, middle ground, and background, you will create your own landscape painting and choosing from your own reference photographs…

The class sizes are kept small, so you get the individual attention you deserve. You are encouraged to work at your own pace. Choose from sitting or standing with your own easel and professional lighting in the artist’s professional studio. Located in the heart of Wine Country, minutes from Mission Hill Winery. Your instructor is professional artist Louise Lambert, known for her captivating landscapes and vineyard paintings in the Valley.

What to bring to the studio:
Bring a good reference image. When choosing a photo reference, you will want one with good lighting and contrast. And of course, a subject that holds your interest. You will want to bring some images to work with and an 11” by 14” canvas. If you have your own acrylic paints and brushes bring them along, otherwise, you can use student-quality paint at the studio.
