How to Paint a Landscape

The How to Paint a Landscape course answers all the questions you have ever had about painting fields, meadows, or landscape views.

The all-day course is divided into two blocks. In the first, theoretical part, we will have a lecture with a projection about the landscape with a sample of famous landscape paintings. In the second, practical part, we then begin to paint. We’ll talk about the atmospheric perspective and how it changes the colors in the landscape, find out what the first and second plans are, and how they affect the composition of the image, and explain how to work with oil paints.

We paint according to the original or your own photos. The course is designed for both beginners and advanced students.
