For thousands of years, artists have learned by observing famous paintings and you can too. See how Boudin made quick marks, Monet used light, and Van Gogh used color and thick paint to create masterworks. Learning to interpret classical painting techniques will train your eyes into seeing past the surface while building creativity to develop a personal style. This approach includes fun snippets of art history and working from photos of masterworks to create three unique oil landscape paintings.
