Landscape Painting in Oils


Every Monday in October (October 2, 9, 16, 23, 30) from 5 PM to 8 PM at the Artists' Hand studio.

Instructor: Beth Wheeler


In this five-week course, we will create 2-3 landscape paintings in oils, working from photo references. For weeks 1 and 2, follow along step-by-step while learning about atmospheric perspective, color mixing, composition, creating texture, and more. For the remaining three classes, create your own landscape painting using your own reference photo, with guidance from instructor Beth Wheeler. This class is open to anyone from beginning students to seasoned painters who would like to brush up on their skills or explore different techniques.


Supplies needed: Palette knife, brushes (large, medium, and small flat and medium and small round at minimum), paints (see below), Liquin medium (optional)


Paints—Hansa Yellow Light or similar, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red Hue or similar, Alizarin Crimson, Indiana Red, Burnt Sienna, Cobalt Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White or similar, Pthalo Green (optional) , Burnt Umber (optional), Payne’s Gray (optional). I use Utrecht brand available at, but other brands are fine.
