Step-by-step landscape demonstration for beginning artist.

Learn to oil paint in the style of the old masters with Jon Houglum in this video series.   Houglum covers
fundamental lessons and techniques involved in painting a simple mountain landscape scene.   Demonstrations are directed to the absolute beginner but others can benefit, especially if you have trouble with deciduous trees, as I do.

The following 5 videos are actually excerpts from DVDs sold on his website, however they are not skimpy on detail.  Over an hour of instruction all together. He covers how to mix color, then focuses on
painting a lacy tree.  Finally a step by step landscape that includes trees.

Part #1. Houglum covers how to prepare canvas, how to mix colors, the color wheel, basic drawing and painting techniques.

Part #2. Houglum demonstrates how to paint a tree in three steps. How use lights and darks to get visual interest.

Part #3. How to paint a mountain scene with oils, step 1.

Part #4. Here video jumps ahead with background nearly completed.

Part #5. Adding tree and tips for making the painting vibrant by darker darks and lighter lights.
