Landscape Cottage - instructions from Richard Schmid

I wanted to make you all aware of a great learning tool on the internet.  You can purchase DVDS and books by the great painter Richard Schmid, but did you know you could get monthly lessons with photos of each step.  Go to and you can subscribe.  It is reasonably priced.  I am not often attracted to landscape, but I did enjoy doing this one and like the loose, fresh look of the strokes.  His limited palette is also very nice.


  1. This is lovely, Anne. Nice composition and soft palette. Love the house peeking through the trees. You should do more landscapes! Thanks for the tip on Richard Schmid.

  2. I love Richard Schmid, thank you so much for the info. Your painting is great. Is this from one of the lessons. I really like the composition and color palette. I hope you are enjoying the twins.

  3. Debbie, it is from one of Richard's lessons. Think it was series 18. He has the palette listed on the web site as well.

    Twins are great...growing and just adorable. Thanks.
