Michelangelo famously said: 

“Every block of stone has a statue inside it, and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”

The same is true for any form of art

Your next masterpiece is waiting for you to discover and breathe it into life on the canvas...

Paintings that leave impressions through the ages are not about great technique alone, nor just subject matter, but convey part of the painter’s very soul. 

True artists are able to capture the intrinsic beauty of the moment and depict the raw emotions they’re feeling, as well as the reality of the scene, simultaneously. 

Most artists struggle to do this, but there’s one man who does it with ease. 

One man who has conquered the human-error element of plein air painting…

The best part? He can show you how to master landscapes too.

His name is Paul Kratter. 

He’s an award-winning, emotionally driven landscape painter and instructor. 

You’re looking for a new way to learn how to paint landscapes?

His step-by-step process is easy to follow. 

You’ll learn the importance and inherent beauty of the sketch and how it can save you valuable time before you even lift your brush…

Learn how focusing on the fundamentals and pre-framing of sketching will help you avoid frustrating and costly mistakes midway through.

If you want to learn Paul’s proven method, keep reading… 

This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants more freedom in their expression or who just loves art!

“I like to Capture the Authenticity of the Day.”

— Paul Kratter

I enjoyed Paul's Mastering Trees so much I decided to get Mastering Landscapes. I am not disappointed, this one is equally as good as the first one.

Easily worth the investment

I haven't viewed all of the video yet but I have not been disappointed. I knew some of what to expect as I already had Paul's earlier video, "Mastering Trees." I obviously thought that one was worth the price too, or I wouldn't have ordered the new one. He has a very natural teaching style and relaxing approach. I figure if I learn just one or two principles per video that help me advance quicker it's worth the investment: one or two good lessons can save years of learning by experience. Sure I need lots of practice but good practice is better than bad practice. Compared to college tuition videos like this are a bargain - and contain a lot more usable information than most college courses from my experience.

Superb teaching

I really enjoyed this video, Paul has a brilliant way of explaining things without confusion for beginners. That being said all levels will benefit from this video! I look forward to purchasing another of Paul's videos
