What Other Artist's Are Saying:

"This is the 1st weekend class of a set. I have learned more from this course than I have in all the night school art classes I have taken since the 70's!! Johannes is worth his weight in gold as a teacher. You will learn things you can apply to anything you paint. This man is full of secrets he can't wait to divulge to you. These recorded classes are fabulous (and check out his current classes too -it's live). Really the best money you will ever spend. Lucky lucky me to have found such a great teacher!" — Helen Alksnys

He describes, explains and demonstrates his "golden nuggets" in such a positive manner you can't help but learn AND get excited all over again about painting. Wish I had experienced his teaching earlier in life but SO glad to have the opportunity now. I recommend that you take as many of his offerings as you are able. Each lesson contains information to help make your landscapes more enjoyable to execute and more successful. Don't forget to check out current classes too." — Beryl Angelus

Excellent Instructor Review by Susan

I have learned so much about composition from Jo. I ordered the complete set of lessons. I cannot say enough about how Jo has helped me.

Start here--you're in for an amazing ride Review by susan
Rating

For me, finding Joe was a dream come true. I wanted to paint landscapes, did it poorly, and was searching for help online because I couldn't find a teacher locally. I took this complete course from Johannes when it was live. I've bought all the downloads but the last one, which I definitely plan to purchase. That's saying a lot because I'm cheap--but Joe's information base is extremely deep and priced very reasonably. Remarkably, he's not hoarding his tips to himself, nor asking a ransom for them. It's also great to be able to review this information any time I want.

Johannes knows his stuff and is able to explain both verbally and visually. He makes a statement, then he makes photoshop changes to a photograph right before your very eyes to illustrate. You're learning with two senses, sound and sight, which helps deepen the learning experience.

I honestly feel my work has improved and will continue to improve as a result. For me, that's well worth the price of this set. For the cost of an inexpensive multi-day painting workshop, you'll get FAR, FAR more information here that you can even review later at any time you want. I want to buy everything Joe does!

From architecture to painting. Review by Jose Cedeno
Rating

After retiring from architecture I took on painting and most especially Landscapes, for over twenty years attended numerous workshops, seminars, and read many how- to books but it was very disappointing and frustrating to make the transition from architectural drawing to painting it was a battle between the Left and Right Brain so I gave it up; but then a MIRACLE I learned about JOHANNES VLOOTHUIS classes on wetcanvas.com and that changed everything.
"PAINTING STUNNING LANDSCAPES FROM PHOTOS" by Johannes Vloothuis is the best instruction course that an aspiring artist could take, this course of 24 lessons has taught me all I need to know to paint better landscapes. I highly recommend it along with all other individual courses given by him watching the videos is like having a private Tutor.

This series is excellent art instruction and was my introduction to Johannes's teaching style. You will not find a better teacher of art. The entire series is high quality and worth every cent.

Excellent Review by Micki
Rating

I selected this lesson to review as it was the first in which I participated - and have been privileged to be a student ever since.

Johannes courses are well planned and professionally presented. He shares his knowledge without reservation ensuring all understand the material with handouts, diagrams and demonstrations.

The price of the recorded classes is nominal - and it is money well spent.

I highly recommend all the courses as being beneficial to anyone who paints.

Johannes Courses Review by mickisew
Rating

Having participated in all Johannes courses since the beginning of 2011, I select this one for review since it is the first.

Johannes plans and presents his courses in a professional and orderly manner sharing his knowledge to the benefit of his students. He makes sure everyone understands the principles with diagrams and demonstrations.

Johannes courses are the absolute best. The courses are offered at a most reasonable cost, and it is money well spent.

Painting Stunning Landscapes from Photos Review by mickisew
Rating

This class is selected for review because it is the first Webinar I participated in and have participated in all classes presented since the beginning of 2011.

Every class is carefully and professionally planned and presented by Johannes. IMO the information shared is above and beyond that taught by other artists. Instead of learning the "golden nuggets" bits and pieces from various sources, Johannes presents the inside scoop in an orderly, easy-to-understand manner is a series of courses.

I can't applaud the Painting Stunning Landscapes from Photos enough to do justice. This is a most excellent series, and I highly recommend it for anyone painting landscapes. The classes that follow offer an more in-depth study of particular subjects, and I totally recommend them as well.

Johannes is an excellent instructor - giving and sharing his knowledge to the benefit of his students. Experience one of his courses, and you will find it is money well spent.
