    In this lesson, instructor Marc Dalessio will guide you in selecting landscapes to paint from life. He will start by demonstrating painting a scene with clear foreground, middle ground, and background elements. Afterward, Marc will take you on a tour of outdoor locations and explain the suitability of each subject for painting. Finally, you’ll learn how to create thumbnail sketches in your sketchbook.

    This lesson belongs to the course Studio Landscape Painting Utilizing Sight-Size. In this 11-week course, Marc Dalessio will teach you how to paint landscapes in oils using the sight-size method. You’ll learn about the materials needed and how to select a landscape scene, create thumbnail studies, and make color sketches on location. From there, Marc will walk you through things to consider when choosing the best composition to enlarge in your studio. You will learn to block in, refine, glaze, and add details to the final painting. After this course, you’ll possess the skills to masterfully capture outdoor scenes.

    Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.
