PAINT ALONG 44 LIVE | PAINT BETTER LANDSCAPES SHAPE BY SHAPE
One of the major weaknesses of artists it to be too truthful to nature’s trees, rocks, and its other subjects. For this reason it is not recommended to paint what you see, rather what the viewer is supposed to see. This workshop will focus on designing visually pleasing landscape shapes that are not symmetrical. You will reinforce the artistic, not the literal, value of trees, bushes and rocks as well as other parts of landscapes.
You will receive drawing templates before each class, which you can trace onto your painting surface. And, during each session you will receive verbal techniques, color combinations, professional secrets, and instructions to guide you along the way. One painting demo will be in oils, another in watercolor, and another in pastels. Acrylic artists will benefit as well.
Join Johannes Vloothuis and hundreds of like-minded artists for this fun filled workshop. Register now and get ready to create beautiful landscape paintings.
Painting demonstrations will include the following subjects:
• A shallow creek running through a meadow in late spring (oils)
• The famous Kuang Si Waterfalls (pastels including PanPastel)
• An overlook from a tall hill at the feet of the Tetons with gorgeous foliage (Watercolor)
Dates: 3 Saturdays: April 7, 14 and 21
Time: 1:00 to 6:00 PM EST (The class may extend longer)

Here are some testimonials from our students
I’ve been painting for 10 years and wish I had found Johannes when I first started. It would have saved me thousands of dollars and needless aggravation. I do have a commercial arts degree but that was all drawing no painting. I am retired from the Chicago Tribune newspaper as an ad creator.
Thank you Linnea
“I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying your classes. I am a first time user only since January and am now convinced that I can paint landscapes. I am a die-hard still life and florals painter in oils and can’t wait to get at some landscapes.”
“My work and ability to ‘see’ has improved considerably in these 3 months. Heart-felt thanks for a great student/teacher relationship here in real-time cyber space!!”
“Since watching your class, I look at my old paintings and see what I did wrong. I had no idea there is a ‘melodic line’ that conveys to the viewer in a positive way. Thanks for this eye opener and all the other gems.”
“Your classes have answered my two big questions which I have searched answers of for years. One is why master pieces have strong attractions. Another is how can I do to make my paintings more attractive. Thank you very much.”
“I’ve been teaching art for more than 20 years and, after spending approximately 60 hours with Johannes during his weekend classes, I feel like I should start over again. Wonderful teacher, wonderful teachings!!”
“I so appreciate your solid teaching on composition! Your enthusiasm for sharing this information is obvious. Thank you so much!”
“I have learned more in the past 12 weeks than I have in the 50 years I have been a pastel painter. You have a way to impress the knowledge you impart into my thick skull!! So happy I took the class.”
“I feel fortunate and privileged for having participated in your fantastic Webinar art class. Your unique, professional teaching has opened my eyes: I see, think and paint in a totally new way, and I’ve learned from you more than I ever have of the huge pile of art books I studied!”
“I’ve enjoyed your Wet Canvas lessons. The information on composition has been fabulous for me as a photographer and a fiber artist. What you say makes perfect sense. I started dabbling in watercolor and your guidance has given me the confidence that ‘I too can do this’.”
“My landscape attempts always seemed to be lacking that special spark. Your online workshop has shown me how in so many ways I was missing the mark. I can’t thank you enough for opening up a whole new genre for me!”
“I struggled for years with composition, value, color harmony, etc. Then I stumbled upon your Wet Canvas Webinar and, presto, within weeks things just clicked. The foreign became the familiar. You have given me the tools to create and blossom. Thank you ever so much!”
“I am so impressed with what he has to offer and very sad that I wasn’t able to do the whole course. He is amazing! I would tell anyone that if you want to learn how to paint landscapes….this is the man to do it with.”
