THE RESULTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

Here's what just a few of my students have said...


"I started painting about three years ago. I fell in love with it but I find myself frustrated because I don’t know a lot of the fundamentals, which then I end up with a handful of half done paintings. I took this course to be shown from beginning to end what your process is. Thus far it’s helped me tremendously, there was a lot of steps that I was skipping with my other paintings that would have saved me frustrations." Talia A., artist

"I have been painting in acrylics for a few years and feel like I want to better my skills. I have been trying to transition to oils but it is a very different animal for someone that has only done acrylics. So many questions in oils that other tutorials don’t answer. I love how you explain every little aspect... You leave nothing out. I also like the fact that I can see your palette at all times. So important to see how you mix your colors in real time. You show and explain what you mix and the medium you add each time. Bravo for an awesome learning experience." —Andrew A., artist

LET'S DIG INTO THE DETAILS.

Here's our action plan...


We'll start with orientation and getting your supplies & reference materials ready. Including a fun bonus exercise where we'll make some custom brushes together.


Then we'll cover all the foundational concepts, including the tools and techniques you need to know. These concepts will help set you up for success for all your future paintings.


Next we'll apply those concepts following a 4 stage process where we'll paint together – starting with drawing on the canvas, all the way through to the final details. You'll be able to watch over my shoulder as I paint, including everything I'm doing on my palette.

This is the heart of this course –

actually applying the concepts will help you understand them even better.


And we'll wrap up our time together by reviewing the final painting.

You'll also get two important checklists you can use to plan and analyze your future paintings.

"I really have learned a lot of things that I know I’ll use from now on in every painting I do. I loved seeing the ENTIRE process of how you complete a painting, from the block in to the final touches! Thank you for the wonderful course, it’s definitely improved my painting and I look forward to the next one."—Mitchell Z., artist

MEET YOUR GUIDE

Hey there, I'm Layne Johnson.


I’ve been a painter most of my life.

I understand what it feels like to be all alone, frustrated, trying to figure things out all by yourself. Not knowing if you’re doing things “right”. Not knowing what you don’t know...

The truth is, many of us are self-taught. Despite a BFA, many years as an illustrator and graphic designer, and many more as a children’s book artist, it took me a long time to learn what works and how to apply that to my fine art paintings. Figuring out a process that helps me create rich, realistic landscapes. A process that works.

Since 2018 I’ve helped more than 950 painters from around the world improve their painting skills. I know what it takes to help artists get unstuck and reach new levels of growth.

Sometimes, it just takes someone who’s been there before, to show you the way.

Absolutely! Learning how to mix and use colors are essential skills for painting realistic landscapes. Throughout the course I'll show you exactly what colors I'm using and how to mix them real-time, from beginning to end, as we paint. You'll see the specific colors, mediums, and the proportions I use to mix them.

HERE'S A LITTLE MORE FROM STUDENTS

"Having painted for a few years without much guidance it was amazing to have access to such detailed explanations. Layne takes you step-by-step with stunning visuals of the canvas coming to life (and the palette becoming messier!). It was a pleasure to complete the course over months – setting up my painting gear with a cup of tea and blocking off an hour or two to paint the next stage. I know that I will come back to this video in the future and discover new learning points. I can't wait for more!"—Toby M., artist

___________________________________

"I have been so thrilled with this course and also "Painting Clouds" I have learned so much being a new artist and am looking forward to more classes. Highly recommend - especially the ability to start and stop each lesson as many times as needed since we own the lesson on our computer" —Jan G., artist
