Video Archive: Let there be Light! with Howard Friedland


  • *Guest Name

This is a 3-part oil painting class about capturing Light

Painting is really all about capturing  the Light in its many conditions.  In this 3-class series Howard will dig deep into depicting light coming from various sources:

  • Side Lighting
  • Front Lighting
  • Back Lighting
  • Bounced Light
  • Reflected Light
  • Moonlight

These classes will be recorded for you to paint along with on your own.  There will also be a critique of students’ work each week.

All levels are invited to join!

Comments from previous online students:

I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed your classes! I will probably take more from you in the future. I appreciate you so much as a teacher! You are always so knowledgeable and you put a lot of effort into your classes! That is important! Also the subject matter was a bit of a challenge, which is what I really loved! Thank you, CZ

Thank you Howard for your many suggestions! I will be experimenting! I always learn so much from your classes. I think your reflections in the water were outstanding! I’m going to keep working on mine!  EC

Here are several examples of Howard’s paintings where he captures light from various sources:
