    I gained so much knowledge to help me on my painting journey.

    I’ve watched the video a couple of times through and now a section at a time to see how Dennis mixes the mountain colors and develops the hazy effect, etc. Since he previously taught me how to draw landscapes, I plan to do a sketch first to get the tonal values right, then start the painting. He is a great teacher and I like this landscape scene!
