Overlooking the vast deserts of Joshua Tree, in Indian Cove, Stapleton emphasizes that anyone can paint as long as they put “miles of canvas” behind them. In week five, you will learn how to improve your landscape painting by paying close attention to rhythm, temperature shifts, and innominate colors. This lesson includes a tour through the docks of Rockport and Gloucester, while showcasing the historic sites used for painting.

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