LANDSCAPE and ART INSTRUCTION VIDEO by TOM BROWN

Want to know one of my secrets to painting better pictures?

Work out your composition first with a quick value-mass sketch. (Not a careful line drawing, but a value mass study.*)

It takes only moments and it saves loads of time later. A sketch done this way lets you see how the big shapes of tonal value & color work together in the composition before you go too far.

I teach this in my live workshops, especially plein air workshops where it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the amount of detail nature shows us.

A number of my students asked me to make a video about this so everybody could benefit. And now you can download that video today. In the video I’ll show you how I do this type of value-mass sketch.

In the video you’ll watch me use *value-mass sketching to explore several designs for the painting shown here before touching brush to canvas. And then you’ll see how the painting developed based on the sketch I liked best.

The video even includes a small gallery of other subjects with their preliminary value-mass sketches so you can see how it applies to a variety of compositions and ideas.  

Thanks for looking.
