I have been quite busy since last post, so here a quicky Landscape thumb-nailing. More to come...(hopefully)


  1. good Job Fred! Great to see you back.
    What advice would you give if I want to learn how to paint? Currently I am just using Photo and doing Master Copies.

  2. I think the most important is to learn composition, it is the basic of all painting. Rendering seems to be a second issue, and without good composition , rendering won t help. For composition follow these two masters one book from Marcos Mateu-Mestre and one from Edgar_Payne_composition Outdoor Painting)

    Second thing is practice. Do your own stuff, but don t get caught in doing one thing and turn it to something great from scratch. Do a lot of different theme, and pick up the one that can turn a little star...Start black and white...the go to color...and compare with nature and others work...
    Finally, always study and paint what you like...
    I can t really tell you more as I m allways learning...

  3. thank you Fred! This really help! Can't wait to see more good stuffs on your blog!

  4. Thank you for another great post. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing about landscaping? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
