One distinction of New England-style painting is that landscape artists, like Stapleton Kearns, often finish up their paintings in the studio, after leaving the location. In this lesson, Stapleton walks you through this process, including how to choose which painting to bring to completion. Here you will learn how to entirely focus on design, without the ability to paint from life.

This lesson belongs to the course Designing Your Landscape Painting. Follow Stapleton Kearns through the howling deserts of Joshua Tree, the coast of Point Lobos, and the colorful fall landscape of Vermont, as he teaches you the New England style of landscape painting. Stapleton will take you through his decision-making process on how to design and construct different elements in a landscape painting. Along the way, you will learn his tips and tricks on brushes, paints, and personal techniques.

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