Landscape Painting Course with

Louise Balaam

Would you like to improve your expressive landscape painting, and use your experience of the outside world to make intuitive and gestural paintings? At Jurassic Studios our expressive landscape painting courses are designed to help you reach the next level of landscape painting. This course is designed for students of all abilities.

What you’ll learn?

In this course, we will first focus on any single element of landscape painting. Next, we’ll teach you several ways to simplify and play with pictures and colors of the landscape, so you can re-create them in expressive form. Then, you’ll get a chance to create a series of expressive landscape paintings, and one or two bigger paintings, as you try your hands on each approach. We’ll be using fast drying and versatile paints for getting the most unique and beautiful expressive landscape paintings.
