Learn the Secrets of Painting Outdoors From Master Landscape Painter and Instructor Brian Blood 

You want to become a better painter. Wouldn’t you love to be able to set up your easel outdoors and knock out a stunning landscape in just a couple of hours? Imagine how your life would change if you could learn to paint great landscapes on location quickly, and make them come out beautifully. Suddenly you’d be able to paint a masterpiece each time you could find an extra hour or two. Suddenly you’d be less frustrated, prouder of your work, “in the zone” and painting more because you’d have learned the techniques of painting quickly without sacrificing quality.

Imagine when people ask, “Who painted that stunning picture?” and you can respond that it’s one of yours. You’ll no longer feel you have to apologize for your work because you’ll be painting with confidence.

Painting outdoors is a creative and fulfilling art form that allows you to capture the surrounding scenery in real time, no matter where you are, and with little time to work. Whether you are on an adventure in your own backyard or traveling the world, there’s no better way to blend your love of the outdoors with your love of painting than by painting en plein air. And plein air painting allows you to grab stolen moments for a painting — while waiting for the kids or grandkids at a park or the beach, or while slipping away for a couple of hours while the kids are at school. When traveling with friends to exotic places, you can get out and do a painting before they even start their day.

Outdoor painting also presents challenges for even the most experienced artists — rapidly changing weather and lighting conditions can make painting outside very tricky, and sometimes quite intimidating, keeping even the most enthusiastic painters inside. Those who ordinarily paint only indoors are often especially out of their comfort zone painting outside.

But now, like never before, you have the chance to learn how to expertly paint outdoors, making your precious painting time efficient while capturing the essence of the scene that speaks to you. You’ll now be prepared with the right paints and equipment to face any conditions you may encounter, so you can create captivating landscape paintings. You’ll be empowered with the knowledge of how to reflect what you’re seeing and create a likeness of the scene without spending frustrating hours trying to get it right.

Best of all, you’ll be learning from one of the most sought-after painters in America, whose landscapes hang in major collections, museums, and hotels. Brian Blood will reveal his closely held secrets, those he uses when he has only a couple of hours to create a beautiful painting on location.

Brian Blood: Outdoor Painting Secrets is designed just for the person who wants to learn to master outdoor painting and wants to capture the feeling of a scene as rapidly as possible.

Brian Blood Outdoor Painting Secrets

Excellent instructional video! Brian communicates clearly and has an easy manner. The scenery in Pacific Grove is gorgeous and we have visited the location of his demo many times. He definitely reveals many valuable tips which I plan to implement in my landscape paintings in the future. I particularly like the way he divided his canvas into the different planes, the simplicity of his shapes and the effect he achieves for grasses with a light touch and a dry brush. I will be referring back to it again! Highly recommend!

Great Instructional Video

Hands down a great instructional video. Because of the wildfire smoke in Washington State this month, I had to pull out of a plein air workshop on a beautiful island. Instead, I watched Brian Blood's video. It's worth your time and $$$.

Down to earth advice for Plein Air

What I like is Brians no frill commentary during the DVD. First of all his work is impeccable, sensitive and rich. His verbal delivery is logical and delivered with that amazing NE accent. He is a bare bones, get it done kind of instructor. His explanations are easy to grasp, his command obvious, his passion in plain sight. Great DVD.
