  • How to create "eye candy" to make the painting interesting far beyond the first look

  • Which solvent is not only odorless, it won't leave you with headaches and is the safest for studio use

  • What critical elements to watch out for when you're painting from photographs so your creation best matches reality

  • The secret to taking a fresh look at your work without ever having to walk away from it

  • How Kathleen uses the color-temperature shifts in shadows to make them far more interesting for the viewer

 

Have you ever stood on the shoreline, gazed at the crashing waves, and thought to yourself,

"I'd love to capture THAT in a painting!"

Have you ever wished you possessedthe secret techniques the masters use so you could create your own gallery-quality composition?

Well, if you're an aspiring landscape artist, you already know that talent and technique usually come at quite a time-consuming AND costly price...

...a price that a lot of people simply aren't able to pay these days!

That's because most of us have careers, families, and other obligations that take up most of our time...

...and the expense of traveling around the world from workshop to workshop ishefty, to say the least.

However...

What if you could get exclusive access to your ownaffordable private course with an award-winning professional landscape artist?

What if you could go back to this course and refer to it over and over again?

Think about it:

One-on-one instruction from an expert who can show you all the best techniques that the very best landscape painters in the world use in their work...

...a proven teacher who can build your confidence and skills as an artist...

...with training you can go back to for guidance and direction.

How would that change things for you and your work?

Here's something you may not realize:

The difference between a mediocre landscape artist and a truly great one is NOT raw talent or effort(or even desire)...

...it's the quality of instruction they receive!

This is the "game changer" for artists.

THIS is how you can learn, step by step, to take that sweeping mountain range, the vast desert canyon, or the sun-splashed oceanfront and create a breathtaking work of art.

In Kathleen's own words:

"The landscape has always been my chief source of artistic inspiration.I love to capture sweeping vistas of rugged terrain, shimmering waves, and dramatic atmospherics.My paintings represent specific places and moments in time: the brief point during a sunrise when the sun fills the air with an ethereal golden glow...a break in a storm where light pierces through heavy cloudsor the sight of glacial runoff sending waterfalls down the side of a mountain wreathed in fog."

When Kathleen attended the 2017 Plein Air Convention in San Diego, she got the opportunity to paint one of the most famous seashore scenes in the world: the California coastline.

And it's this stunning piece of work Hudson uses in her all-new instructional video ... where she shares all of her incredible techniques.

Recording every single step, Hudson has taken all of her landscape painting knowledge and techniques and placed them in a brand new video collection.

 

 

Clouds and Distance

Paint along with Kathleen:

  • Go ahead … paint that complicated landscape scene!
  • This special tool will help you self-critique your work in progress
  • Plan for that spontaneous storm!
  • Why things are a little different when painting rough weather (Kathleen shows you everything here!)
  • Beware the shifting shadows … they play tricks on your eyes!
  • Be completely transparent!
  • Show your viewers what you found meaningful in the landscape … here’s how!
  • Using photos? They might be lying to you!
  • Manage your palette so you don’t get interrupted (yes, you have permission to buy more tubes of paint!)
  • Kathleen’s special tools that you’ll want to add to your own collection (she’ll tell you why!)
  • Were you taught NOT to put the horizon close to the center? Sometimes, it’s the best thing to do!
  • Lead your viewers through the painting by virtually holding their hand
  • When it’s time to remove what you don’t need!
  • Be careful … nature can be chaotic, but you don’t want to bring chaos into your paintings
  • Aren’t storm clouds all gray? You’ll be seeing cloud color in a whole new way!
  • And so much more…

A rumbling storm rolling through a majestic mountain range may be quite scary … the dark, heavy clouds growing as they gain speed … the thunder made louder as the hills and valleys amplify the roar … the wind picking up and raindrops pelting the landscape…

You fight the instinct to run … your inner creative stands in awe of this impressive performance brought to you by Mother Nature…

You don’t want to leave this storm … nope. You want to paint it!

You long to capture this moment so you’ll remember it forever — the images, the sounds, the feelings you’re experiencing…

How can you possibly paint this when the scene is literally changing every few seconds?

Shifting light, crazy dark shadows, billowing clouds in every color, an occasional beam of brilliant sunlight changing everything for a fleeting moment.

Maybe you begin to doubt yourself … you can’t paint this, it’s all changing so fast … there’s no way you’ll be able to recreate the depth and texture you see before you … maybe it’s impossible…

Don’t worry … There is a way for you to paint this magical moment … and do it very well! Even though you MUST get to shelter and stay out of harm's way.

You just need the right instructor to show you what to do and how to do it!

Kathleen will walk you through every step as she expertly prepares and paints the light and movement of a daunting storm in the Colorado Rockies.

Painting such a scene requires a few adjustments in how you do things, and Kathleen will cover it all…

  • Special planning and prep work
  • Studies and references
  • The right brushes and brushwork
  • Dealing with the quickly changing atmospheric conditions
  • Creating a sense of distance

And this is just the beginning of what you’ll discover when you study with Kathleen in Clouds & Distance.

You’ll love Kathleen’s casual teaching style and how she explains every step and decision so you gain a thorough understanding of the “why” behind everything she does. You’ll know exactly how each move will improve your painting skills and elevate the quality of your work.
