Newfoundland and Labrador.
Newfoundland and Labrador is one of mini-course of the Canadian landscape set of courses. This mini course takes you to the East coast of Canada where you will learn to paint puffins and ocean coast landscapes.
This course contains four lessons. You will learn the theory of atmospheric perspective and use this knowledge in practice. You will paint four landscape scenes with different viewpoints. You will learn how important it is to understand where the line of horizon is and how it changes the impression of your painting.
