Composition is a concept with ideas and rules that can be played with or ultimately broken. Regardless, it is good to understand the different ways to compose your painting and the effects those decisions have on your painting. In this lesson, Ben lays out the rules and lists a few common types of compositions.

Landscape painting in a studio compared to painting on-location are completely different experiences, each with their own set of challenges to face. Painting landscapes on-location means you’re faced with constantly changing natural lighting, as well as nature, but the experience itself can really make your inspiration flow.

In this painting course, Artist Ben Fenske teaches you the fundamentals of landscape painting through a series of lessons. These lessons include easy to follow instruction, analysis of famous landscape paintings, and demonstrations shot on-location, to help you better your painting skills.
