The following is a free 2 part step by step oil painting landscape demo, part of a DVD course taught by artist John Houglum available for purchase on his website here.. There is about 30 minutes of content here, enough to really wet your appetite and get you started with Jon’s landscape painting techniques. He really is a great teacher and makes painting beautiful pictures more tangible for beginners in my opinion. Certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but I sure do like his style. It reminds me a great deal of the impressionists.
