Landscapes are made up of many different elements all put together. In this series of videos you will learn how to paint some of these elements - skies, backgrounds, foregrounds and trees.
This course will teach you the basic skills you will need to be able to paint these features of the landscape.
Skies play such an important part in any landscape. They can be the main theme, with stormy clouds and great drama, or they can be just the backdrop for the main theme. But always they provide the light and atmosphere for the scene.
Here I´ll show you how to paint different types of sky, from the bright blue of a summer’s day to a rainstorm.
Adding clouds to a sky will increase it's interest. In fact they can become the main focus of the painting. I'll show you how to paint realistic clouds in a variety of ways.
We start off with learning how we keep the background at the back, and how we can give our paintings that feeling of recession into the distance.
I’ll then show you how to paint simple hills that stay in the background, and finally how to make the background the star of the picture, by painting a sunlit snowy mountain scene.
Many people find foregrounds quite hard to paint, but that is usually because they make them to fussy and complicated. In most paintings, the foreground is only there to support the man centre of interest or the focal point of the painting. I’ll show you how to paint foregrounds that are interesting, but which don’t distract from the focus of your painting.
Trees play a big part in many landscapes. They can be the focal part, or the backdrop, or just features of interest. But almost every landscape has them.
I’ll show you here how to paint trees, from those way back in the distance, to trees up close. I’ll show you how to paint them simply and easily, and how to make them fit into the landscape and feel a part of it.
