About This Class

Have you ever wanted to express a vivid and lush landscape or environment?

Landscape painting is one of the oldest and most cherished forms of art, and the world is always in need of a good environment artist. 

You have characters and worlds within you, figures and backgrounds. We're here today to cover the background part of it.

In this class, you'll be walked through the process of sketching, coloring, rendering, and lighting a digital landscape painting. 

Taught by professional artist Taylor Payton, the piece you'll see unfold was originally meant as a commission.

In this class, we cover:

  1. Speedpaint sketching
  2. Line drawing
  3. Color and light
  4. Shadows
  5. Simple drawing
  6. Composition techniques
  7. Materials and textures
  8. Brushwork and economy
  9. Shape language and design
  10. Mistake correction
  11. Simplification methods
  12. And more!

Not only will you learn the techniques and methods used to craft the  sketchy landscapes below, you'll even learn what it takes to finalize one.
