Join landscape artist, Johannes Vloothuis, to combine reference photos for great landscape painting results.

In this online course you will learn how to combine more than one photo to compose scenes that will dramatically expand your painting possibilities. During each session you will receive verbal techniques, color combinations, professional secrets, and instructions to guide you along the way. You will receive drawing templates before each class, which you can trace onto your painting surface. One demo will be in oils, another in watercolor, and another in pastels.
