Paint the landscape with more confidence by mastering the elements of it.  This class is part of the Mastering the Elements of the Landscape Series. This course will focus on painting rocks and cliffs, elements that many landscape painters struggle with. In this course students will learn about achieving realistic form and texture in rocks and cliffs enabling them to paint them more realistically.  Mike will lead students through four projects discussing and demonstrating how to paint everything from smooth river rocks to jagged cliffs and everything in-between.
