Free Landscape Painting Class by Fred Bell 10/26/21 at 10am

From: Fred Bell <


Have you ever wanted to learn how to paint a landscape?

In my FREE class, I will show you my approach to painting. The key to painting complicated scenes is knowing how to see in a simple way.  It is about the big simple shapes more than the details.


In the FREE class, I will paint a landscape from a photo using acrylics. Starting with a small sketch and proceeding through to a finished painting. I'll describe what I am doing and why. Colors, composition, values, and materials will be covered.


I have been teaching adults my techniques for a long time. I started teaching on Zoom when the pandemic started and it has worked out very well. Students like it better than in-person classes because they can see me work, we can talk more easily and they don't have to leave home.


The FREE class will happen on
  • Tuesday,
  • October 26, 2021, at
  • 10 am.


To attend:

1.) Go to

2.) Sign up and I will send you the photo I will paint and the Zoom link to the class.


This is a relaxed class that will be easy to understand and fun to attend. I hope you can join me.
