The keys and secrets to landscape oil painting are unleashed as artist Julie Gilbert Pollard gives instruction on how to simplify the world around you!

Some believe the best way to get started is just jump right into a painting, but Julie reveals how a warm-up study and loose line-work can lead to effective artwork. After you become acquainted with your piece, learn how to give your subject vibrancy and energy through placing values and layers. Whether you focus on the background or centerpiece, your painting will start to capture gesture with your brushstrokes and color choices. Oil painting allows for choice, and your unique style will start to come through as you decide the shapes and strokes of the landscape.
