Johannes Vloothuis' Landscape Photo Reference Pack
Over the years and during all his travels Johannes has been accumulating his own personal library of reference landscape photos. From all these photos he has handpicked the best from some of his favorite painting spots. These will make good reference photos for painting landscapes. The difference with these photos compared to others is that they were carefully selected and taken by an expert landscape artist so they are very supportive in composition. Whereas as other photos by professional photographers are not taken with the intent of painting from them. That's why these photos are so special and are now available to you. By purchasing these reference photos, Johannes grants you the right to use these photos and waves the copyrights for you to use for paintings.

:clap: In an online class earlier this year, Johannes mentioned that he would be working on a book.

As someone who has enjoyed and learned much from watching several of Johannes' webinars, I'm sure I'll be one of the first to buy the book.

I'd like to know more about how the book is progressing:clap: :cat: :clap: and when it is likely to be published
I have submitted a sample lesson to Northight. It still has to be approved for final contract. I am also waiting enthusiastically for the final word. The difference with many authors is they have to hustle the publishing company. In my case it was the reverse. It was offered to me.
