FYI to curious readers. This past summer I returned to painting landscapes. I worked my way through several 'How To' books by by various reputable instructors and was satisfied regarding the techniques I was learning (or relearning) but there was little explanation as to WHY the instructor went in this direction rather than another. What was lacking to my mind was foundation level theory.

The other day I downloaded this instructional video from Johannes Vloothuis, and he covered not only how to handle brushes and mediums to create certain effects but why one did or did not add certain touches according to established landscape painting theory.

So for what it's worth I found his video instruction segments practical and very informative.
