A step-by-step process for painting an
So you're enjoying painting landscapes, but feel like your clouds are just not as good as you'd like?
I want you to imagine for a moment... painting clouds like you've always dreamed!
How do I even start? What colors should I use? Which brush works best for what?
If you're nodding your head at any of these, this course is for you!
If you’ve watched my videos on Instagram and wished they were longer so you could learn more, this course is for you!
Join me in my studio and follow along while I demystify clouds and share the magic of painting a cloudscape.
What you can expect in this online course:
By the end of this course, you'll have a cloudscape painting of your own, and new skills you can apply to painting other landscapes.
I hope you'll join me!
(Note: While I paint in oils, you can also use acrylics in this course. See the FAQ section below for more information.)
Don't just take my word for it, here's what other artists have to say about the course, from beginners to experienced painters:
"I have taken several online courses to improve my painting but this one is the best by far in teaching me new techniques. I feel so much more confident now when I pick up my brush - and I have reviewed the course several times. I'm sure I will continue to learn from it.
Thanks so much for your time and effort! When is the next one? Let's GO!"
"An online course for painting is something that never occurred to me, but it was exactly what I needed. This was also my first painting lesson since I started painting 4 years ago. Your teachings (from Instagram to the course) have been really useful, and I'm thankful for that.
I especially liked the photo that you chose and the bonus material where we, the students, can hear you talk more about things that are important to know if you want to be a painter.
Thanks again, I'll enroll in any other course you might open.
"The course really helped me learn new techniques and manage color and blending! I improved so much!"
"Do not hesitate to take a painting lesson from Layne! Not only does he have the knowledge but he also has the ability to articulate the lesson in bite-size pieces so you are able to have a very successful painting at the end of it all. It was a complete joy to learn from Layne Johnson.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced painter you will learn a lot at your own pace with an exceptional professional artist!"
"I'm really enjoying your "Painting Dramatic Clouds" video course. I'm working on a small 5x7 study just to feel out the technique and will then do a 9x12 or 18x24. Great instructional teaching and I encourage you to do more of these.
For others considering this course, if you enjoy Layne's paintings and techniques, then sign up for this course. It's really awesome and professionally done."
"Every year I try to learn something new. I have zero painting experience so your class is the first class of instruction I've ever signed up for. Before I started my painting I wanted to do a ‘dry run’ and watched the videos to get an understanding of what to do. (Phenomenal by the way.)
This format has been great, super easy to navigate."
"Mr. Layne’s class is so peaceful and educational. My work shall change because of his clear instruction.
I felt like I was in art class and my instructor was painting with me. The music was perfect."
"I think you are the best cloud/sky/landscape artist out there. Your instructional videos are thorough. I appreciate that you offer so much detailed information. I find that I watch a video once or twice before I actually do it. There is so much to learn. Thank you!"
