A light effect is determined by the position of the sun in relation to the landscape painting scene. A scene with the sun behind you will look vastly different than a scene with the sun directly in front of you. In this lesson, you will learn about the different types of light effects created by the position of the sun, and how they affect the value relationships in your scene.

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.
