This scene of a pond surrounded by trees of different sizes and colors was filmed during a butterfly migration, and it was chosen for all of its variety. One of the challenges was capturing the most interesting aspects of the scene without making the composition too symmetrical.

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.
