This course serves as the foundation for better understanding the material in the full AOP site and is a crucial start on the adventure. After the "Getting Started" section, which covers materials, the core content is divided into 3 "Adventure Series" that support an integrated process to landscape painting. Scott covers the core concepts and processes that he practices to this day in each painting that he creates.

Taught by world-renowned artist and instructor, Scott L. Christensen, AOP dives deep into the essentials of landscape painting. For beginners and seasoned painters alike, the content will give you the fundamentals you need to accelerate your growth and radically improve your artistic vision. While examples are done in oil and gouache, the concepts presented are easily applicable to any medium.

This is everything you need to take your painting to the next level.
