In this live workshop, you’ll learn about Layne Johnson’s 4-stage painting process for creating beautiful, luminous landscapes. Layne will demonstrate stage 1: the imprimatura–bistre, one of the most important techniques to help jump-start your paintings. Since values are so critical for a successful painting (some would argue more important than color), this stage helps you establish your values, light sources, preliminary modeling, and gives you a solid foundation for luminosity. At the end of the workshop, Layne will also share a bundle of art resources for painters.
Through his video lessons on Instagram and his online art school, Layne Johnson has created a global community of more than a quarter million people who love cloudscapes, landscapes, and celebrating the beauty of nature through art. @laynejohnsonstudio
