Your First (or Next) Complete Landscape
In Under 3 Hours!
A Painting Course from the Studio of Artist Jennifer Vranes
Here’s What’s Inside This All-New Painting Course...
From Blank Canvas to Background Layers
Lesson #1 - Your Background
In lesson #1 you’ll get started by discovering...
My “kitchen sink” trade secret to painting gorgeous backgrounds in less than 10 minutes WITHOUT a paintbrush. This saves you hours and hours so you can focus on the FUN stuff like texture and using your palette knives.
Blending to create beautiful sunlight! Why we don’t want it to look sharp or cut out, and why “rough” softens your edges best.
Which colors soften the tones of your background. My secret sauce to make browns darker. What I never add, and what I always add to the mixture instead.
How to create depth easily and map in the meadow without any smudging. Seems silly, but works like a charm.
Mapping in the Distant Trees
Lesson #2 - Distant Trees
In Lesson #2 you’ll begin layering the background trees. I’ll show you techniques including...
The direction you always move when painting a landscape. Plus, why this makes it so much easier!
How to make each knife-stroke unique. Actually, it’s the fastest way to paint and the unique strokes are an inevitable side effect.
My go-to green mixture to avoid contamination. I sometimes tint it. But I never ever use it until I finish these other steps.
Why NOT cleaning off your palette knife makes your painting even more gorgeous. It’s one of the few things that make painting a “WOW!”
How to paint faster than most artists. This is how my students regularly create 2x, 3x, even 5x more than most painters.
Making Your Scene Almost 3D
Lesson #3 - The Meadow
In Lesson #3 you’ll enhance your painting by adding additional layers to the foreground. You’ll discover...
How to make your paint last long so you can save money. Better still, this money-saving technique gives your paintings a special shine.
When it’s the wrong time to be conservative with your colors. This 3-stage layering technique makes your scene come to life.
Which “Let’s Dabble” knives work best for this spring scene. Plus, get the full scoop on how my tiny paintbrush secret gives your canvas even more 3D texture.
What color I add to create depth in my paintings. And why it works!
Giving Gravity to Your Spring Scene...
Lesson #4 - Sculpt in the Trunks
In Lesson #4 I’ll reveal my signature secrets for creating aspen tree trunks, including…
The secret ingredient that makes your tree trunks thick and free of unintentional (and all too common) cracks in the paint. Plus, a MASSIVE time saver I’ve discovered over the years to tint my trees in the most delightful and speedy way.
Why the lid to your gallon of modeling paste makes one of the best tools for trunks. Without it, it’s easy to make a total mess.
A common misconception — Your trees have to be perfect, right? Wrong! Here’s why you want imperfections in your trees, especially the small ones. Plus, without this kind of “tilt” effect, your scene looks less natural.
My “textures of life” technique for creating 3D pop. Sculpt life-like “Fatty” tree trunks — the kind my galleries adore — using this rounding motion.
Dragging your way to beautiful aspen trees. And the best “quick erase” method for correcting any mess-ups or over-done spots.
Why listening to your intuition is better than perfect palette knife technique. FACT: Anyone who can butter toast or frost a cupcake can paint this lovely scene.
Avoiding Branch Blunders & Placing 3D Knobs
Lesson #5 - Adding Knobs & Branches
In Lesson #5 you’ll give your tree trunks deeper definition. You’ll discover...
Why you don’t have to wait for a dry painting to get your knobs and branches done. I mean you can, if you want. But this is much faster.
How to scrape away the bland 2-dimensional spots most hobby artists can almost never avoid. If you scrape your scene properly with this tool, your trees will gain depth you can get in no other way.
Why almost dropping your palette knife is a good sign. It means you’re doing this right!
How to know the perfect spot to place your black knobs. HINT: one of your past steps set you up perfectly for precise placement.
The “spin” motion that fills the middle-ground of your painting with just the right amount of branches. Overdo it and you’ll knock the balance right out of your scene.
Time to Add "Pop" to Your Painting...
Lesson #6 - Fine Tuning the Trees
This lesson is SO FUN because I usually only share these secrets with the Dabblers in my private Dabble Club. But I’m revealing to you...
The secret “Dabber” way to finish aspen tree trunks. Nobody else in the world uses this technique. It’s so great, it almost creates an optical illusion. I'll show you how I complete my painting and sign my name
My “noodle-out” technique for making your scene appear real. Plus, the only brush I ever use to finish my aspen tree trunks, especially for my 5-figure collector commissions.
Why it’s much easier to paint on a large canvas. Most beginners feel more comfortable using a small canvas until they begin using my methods.
My “illuminated texture” secrets. All it takes is a simple “glide and feather” motion on your branches.
The upside-down canvas trick I use to add warmth to every aspen tree painting. It sounds crazy, but does the trick every time.
Bringing the magical glow...
Lesson #7 - Adding Sunlight to the Meadow
In this final lesson, you’ll discover...
How to make the trunks vivid and striking. This final touch on the knobs does the trick, giving your Spring scene “eyes to see.”
My pet peeve when adding final highlights to the leaves. Don’t do what most artists do. This “finishing” technique is far better, yet super easy.
How to break up your clumps with a top layer of leaf coloring. Plus a little scrape in the final layer is the best way to finish your wonderful new world.
Why strategically placing beautiful blobs creates an unforgettable painting. I wish I’d begun using this method much earlier in my career.
How to enclose your scene and give it a feel of intimacy. It’s tough to stop fiddling with this, but I’ll show you when to call it “finished.”
You’ll discover all this and more, plus finish your painting in as little as 3 hours. But there’s no rush. If you want to take your time, that’s fine. And here’s what the finished product looks like!
