I love the huge scale of the painting on your movable wall, looks like it would be so freeing to paint like that. Just stand back and let the paint fly : ) I would love to win a spot in your class, thanks for sharing your inspiration with us!

brandi said...

We moved to the Rockies a few years ago and the high desert/mountain landscape is so beautiful. I'd love to capture some of that beauty in my art, but landscapes are outside my comfort zone. This class is on my wish list!

Prairie Jill said...

Can't wait for this class to start! I'm inspired by the prairie landscape where I live - vast expanses of flat farmland, with beautiful big skies. And, oh yes, a lot of snow! (So different from your Oregon scenery!)

I'd have to say a sunset. It's like God's gift, no matter what the day has held the sunset gives you a moment to breath again.

Jen Lashua said...

ooh this is sooo perfect! I've been wanting to learn to create landscapes for sometime now..Mountain scenes are calling me, and I have no idea where to start.
Thanks for the chance. xoxo

Katie said...

The Great Lakes! Especially right now when the trees on the shore are changing color. So gorgeous! I'm very lucky to live in Northern Michigan. 💙💛💙

Jana Johnson said...

Favorites are Autumn landscapes :) Thanks for this opportunity, and what fun painting with Lucy!

Unknown said...

The ocean without a doubt! I live on Cape Cod so I'm surrounded by inspiration :)

Cathi Muncy said...

Thank you for the opportunity. I'm most inspired by seascapes, rocky terrain, sunrises/sunsets.

Magenta said...

So inspiring and fun watching you and Lucy create with such freedom that it feels like anything is possible. Living large with landscapes and seasons. Winter scenes, mountains, open fields, hmm, seascapes with fog and massive waves appeals, although it all does. Can there be a landscape of buildings, I like that too.

Janie Husband said...

the mountains,meadows and anything that includes water!! These landscapes are calming for me.... Anxious to sign onto this class....

Jewel said...

Mountains!! Kind of humorous since I am a born and raised South Floridian and grew up steps from the beach. But I love the mountains!

knit by nat said...

Thank you for this wonderful chance! I am absolutely drawn to our lakeside landscapes up north in cottage country Ontario. Blue skies, dark water, evergreens and birch :-)

Analog Girl said...

So cool! This sounds like a wonderful class!
My favorite landscape is the countryside, everything about Nature inspires me so much! Trees, flowers, even small ponds...:)

Analog Girl said...

Cool class! I tend to focus more on the small details instead of "the whole picture ", but I do love the beach and a good old Ruin. There's just something about old buildings...

Cathy Nicholson said...

I paint all types of landscapes as a reminder of my travels. My photographs often serve as my inspiration but it's the painting that connects me most to these far off places.

elena prikhodko knapp said...

I love mountain landscapes and the colors of watercolor skies

Janice Faye said...

Thank you for the great giveaway! I love landscapes that have water in them! I love the reflections and unique shapes the water makes.

Stacey said...

I would have to say the mountains in the fall. I love the aspens and all the beautiful foliage that comes with autumn time.

Claire Meggs said...

I live near the Smoky Mountains which are always "smokin"! Even though I love all outdoor scenes, especially those involving trees, in the end I'm always drawn back to the landscape that is closest to my back door.

The Artist Eye said...

Love that huge painting! I'd say that even though I live near the beach, my favorite landscapes are those with huge old oak trees!

YSABEL RUMBO said...

Thank you for this opportunity! I´ll love take this class!!!!

cjsrq said...

Coastal landscapes are probably my ultimate favorite, but I do love rolling hills, or wide open prairies. Each has its own power to inspire although in different ways.

faith and joy said...

I live in Maryland but come from Michigan - so, landscapes of lakes big & small encourage my heart. I loved the landscape you painted on the rocks as the beautiful Lake Michigan rocks are fun to collect and create with.

Nanci said...

Loved your video of the landscape process, Alisa. Would absolutely love to take part in this course. Thanks for the giveaway for some lucky duckies.

Gail said...

Thank you for the opportunity to take part in this give-away. My favorite type of landscape to
paint are fields of flowers , especially sunflowers.

love, love, love trees reflecting in water.....

Renee said...

How does one choose! Sunsets over the ocean, sky scapes, distant islands, glorious trees!

Pat said...

I love to see how you and your daughter work together! Hard to choose just one landscape but I guess I would have to say something like the Guadalupe mountain range in New Mexico where I'm from originally. Where I live now doesn't have anything like this. :(
Love your blog and all the info you share!
Pat

Lydia Bee said...

Oh, Pick me, Pick me!!!!!! I've never done a landscape!!!! Let me know!!! yayayayayay- Lydia Bee, lbee@frontiernet.net. Just signed up for the large painting class too :)

My Mid-Afternoon Daydream said...

I loved the video so much. I'm always impressed watching you and your daughter that you are actually accomplishing work! So inspiring. We live in Germany and just spent a few days in France. I was gaga over the fall landscape of Normandy - rolling hills, foggy golden violet light, and turning leaves.

Femke said...

The green forests after a rainstorm when everything smells earty and the leafs glissen in the sunlight. Love to win!

kenjenick said...

I love the ocean, scattered blues, greens and grey, streaks of yellow, white and silver twinkling. Day, night, whenever.

Kelly C. said...

I'm absolutely NOT inspired by landscapes. That's why I would love to take your class. If anybody can make them fun and help me appreciate them it's you!

Unknown said...

I love beaches and also fields of flowers. 😄

joyce ho said...

haley said...

Ocean-wild and free.

Reva Madryga said...

The kind of landscapes that inspire me are the beach and sunset ones, with a little island of trees. Or, the country drives through the Ottawa Valley (in Ontario, Canada) to see the changing colours of the trees. Some of the changing leaves even look neon!

Sephra T. said...

I love landscape paintings, and I think all landscapes are beautiful, but I especially love the Alaskan mountain landscapes with trees, rivers, and sunlight streaming through. Hope to win a seat in your class! I'm sure it will be awesome!

Miriam R Kaye said...

totally loved your video and you little helper too ;) I am always drawn to landscapes that incorporate water ie. standing on a beach looking out into the ocean. Perhaps a waterfall in a tropical setting. I have tried to do landscapes but have found it very challenging - I would just love to win a spot in this class.

Jennifer said...

Right now I am obsessed with the bright oranges and pinks the sun reflects on the clouds and trees as iit rises in the early morning. It only lasts for a few moments, but it is a treasure to see.

Nancy S said...

I love to see visions of the Pacific Northwest. It is so very different from my flat, beachy Florida home.

Judith said...

I'm inspired by Mt. Rainier. in the spring. sprinkled with flowers in the foreground.I like to photograph but would love to be able to capture some things in my sketchbook too.

Kristin Dudish said...

Sandy beaches and ocean waters, the explosion of fall color that is happening in my hilly neighborhood right now, and always bright blue skies with puffy white clouds!
(It's supposed to snow here this weekend which means that winter is just around the corner... So that means that the only bright blue skies and puffy white clouds I'll be seeing are the ones I create with paint! lol)

jo cumming said...

Landscape with a road leading to.......love the mystery

Alyssa said...

My favorite landscape images are beach sunsets.

BeanandBear said...

I like the rolling hills and farmland where I live. As the light changes from morning to afternoon to evening the hills transform and keep me inspired.

debbig said...

I would love to learn how to paint seascapes. Thanks for all your knowledge. I love your blog!

William Hetherington said...

I love landscapes with a progression of color, from dark to light or light to dark. They exhibit change and is very dynamic. If I had to choose a particular landscape it would have to be mountain scenes. They depict a lot of different heights that add much interest to the piece. The surfaces are very rigid and do not follow a flat surface it adds an element of inequity which moves the eye around.

Mahira Siddiqi said...

Would love to take this class. Looks so fun!

Lisa Zaren said...

I grew up with the luxury of being near the ocean and the mountains. Now, I am surrounded by corn. You'd think that would be boring, but this time of year, when the corn is gold, the trees are turning and the sky is blue, the colors play off each other in amazing ways. I think all landscapes have soaring beauty, but For me, sitting among the trees fills me with possibility and the water gives me so much peace. ☺️☺️

candyknits said...

I love a woodland setting with rolling hills in fall colors that I just want to walk into and get lost.

Courtney said...

Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite thing to paint in a landscape is interesting skies.

Anonymous said...

The beach, a field of flowers, autumn trees changing colors, and a city park on a snowy evening. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and talent!

I love your landscape painting! Thank you for the giveaway! Very excited!

gottahavemoxie said...

I'm still very new to painting but I would really like to learn how to paint trees and mountains, as I live the mountains of NH. In particular I would love to capture the beautiful fall colors that are on display right now. Looks like a really fun class.

frankie955 said...

I love snowy forest landscapes. The calm serenity inspires me!!

Kim Holl said...

I love to be outdoors and paint plein air. I'd love to learn how to use the camera for referance and do studio work!

Ali said...

Fields. All the hard work and beauty that shows in each unique one. Thank you for this opportunity!

Janelle said...

The forest. Forever and always. It resonates deeply with my melancholy, romantic soul.

Nina Thumand said...

Rolling hills,valleys, forests and trails... A peaceful setting that makes you feel like you can walk right into the painting.

Sounds like a great class! Where I live, gorgeous landscapes are everywhere. Would love to paint them!

Katie said...

This class looks wonderful and how cute is your little girl!

Beaches :)

Helen Shields said...

I left part of my heart in Alaska with its mountains, a section in Scotland with its beaches and a smidge in the Fallkands with its desolate win blown but wildlife full landscape. Landscapes are definitely feature a huge part in my memories of life. Love this post and your class looks amazing.

Montgomery Family said...

I think my favorite landscape is one where the sun is setting...ocean, desert, city, farmland...just give me a beautiful sunset!

Mridula said...

I love soft and muted landscapes.

Holley Downs said...

I love landscapes with mountains and lakes! I also love it at sunrise and sunset. I would love to win this class!

Cindy said...

At the moment it's tree-scapes. and skies. But it's also been ocean, and forest, and farms before. So it could change again any day now.

Carrie said...

We just moved to the mountains and I love driving along in a tiny town, going around a curve and up a hill and BAM! Glorious mountains and farmland and orchards and barns. That's my favorite right now. I love your work and your classes :)

Amber Malarsie said...

I love mountain landscapes and anything about trees. I started painting landscapes in high school and so I am really excited about this set of classes!

Kate Cannon said...

I love open pasture and wooded paths

Dvora said...

Sunflower fields, Poppies on rolling hills and lavender fields. Any rolling hills with tons of vibrant color and maybe even some cypress trees. :)

AshleyQ said...

Beach scenes inspire me most....the texture of water and the play of color between the blues of the sky and ocean just make for such a beautiful landscape! I would LOVE a spot in your class!

Elizabeth Dianne said...

This was amazing and informative to watch--I love all kinds of landscapes--thanks for the opportunity to win a spot in this class--

Firesong said...

I am loving the fall sunrises on my way to work every morning.

Sweet Love and Ginger said...

I'm lucky enough to live right in the Adirondacks, some of US's most beautiful mountains and I love hiking, to look out and see such beautiful forests and mountains is one of my favorite things. I would love to be able to paint those scenes and be able to have them when I'm old and unable to make it up the mountains anymore.

Teresa said...

I have no idea what landscapes speak to me the most, but I know the pictures you post of the Oregon coast are so beautiful! Cannot wait for class to start. Love the giant landscape.

Evette Barry said...

I try to find beauty in everything I see, but the lush landscapes of the Pacific Northwest really inspire me. Greens, golds, reds, browns, and blue sky = beauty.

Judith Westerfield said...

Old world - Tuscany vineyards, French Riviera, Greek Islands are among my favorites

JackieP Neal said...

What a gorgeous canvas you have created!!
My favorite landscape is that of a fall day in rural eastern states,Mass or Vermont. To see the glorious old oak trees with their leaves turning every gorgeous warm shade you can imagine, well, it's just heavenly to me!
thanks for the opportunity Alisa! hugs

Debora Exum said...

Any landscape with a beautiful sky, which often means sunrise or sunset. So many pretty colors.

Tracey Burr said...

Summer is coming in NZ. I'm really looking forward to taking my art journal and watercolours down to the beach to try to capture summer. I have no idea what I'm doing but looking forward to just having a go and seeing what I get. Love your art Alisa, you are so inspiring!

Penny said...

Living in southerenOntario I am inspired by the earthyness of the dappled forest. Especially in the fall

Living in Idaho and loving to hike and hot spring, I take a lot of photos. I'm trying to prove to myself that it's as beautiful at NYS.
Oregon coast is on my wish list.
Pick me! Pick me!

Any vista with beautiful clouds and I'm a bit partial to a bird or two in my scenery as well!

Wow....would love this, thank you for the opportunity!

Sue said...

Whoops was so excited to enter, forgot to say what type of landscape I'd prefer, I think it would have to wheat, corn fields or maybe more meadow-ish with flowers.

jruminski said...

Home inspires me the most. I see the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in the field next to our house. Believe it or not we live in southern Western NY. I am proud and happy to live here. I feel like our view can never gets tiresome, since it is always changing.

Lay Hoon Chua said...

I love sunset landscapes, especially the orange-ist tone of colors.

Alyssa said...

Beach scenes especially with a sunset

Leeshy said...

Hard to choose but I think for me to paint would be mountains. Deserts are so beautiful though. I have lots of inspiration from our trip to the OR coast this weekend!! Fingers crossed!!!

Leeshy said...

Anything with rocks. Rocky coasts or deserts. Weird choice right? But man rocks are truly spectacular be they volcanos or basalt tables or piled high in the desert sun. Thank you for the shot at winning :)

scj said...

What a lovely idea for a class with you. My favourite landscape is autumnal with mountains, lakes, valleys and trees, a haven of quiet and stillness with just nature as my companion. I can see it all now in my imagination - a little moment of peace in an otherwise busy schedule. Thank you Alisa.

Mrs. C said...

Right now I'm loving the Fall colors all around me here in the hills and mountains of Northern New Jersey! :)

Rita Hatcher said...

Sunrise's. What a truly beautiful way to start any day.

We are vacationing in the Rocky Mountains right now and the landscape in breathtaking and so inspiring. I have never taken an online art class before but have been looking at them and your blog for years. Maybe this is the one!!!

Anonymous said...

I live in the Midwest in Nebraska. There is a vastness and beauty to the wide open skies and flat prairies are really inspiring. I have been inspired by your blog for years and have read your book. I have also wanted to take one of your online classes before. Would love the opportunity for growth!

Clémentine Gibert said...

I love to draw the Alps. I started to draw the mountains as a geologist, and now, I just love to sketch for fun! This class looks so much fun! Thanks for the give away.

Marloes said...

I love the sea, so that will be one of my inspirations for a landscape. But also the blooming bulb fields.

Sangita Pillai said...

Thanks for this giveaway, Alisa. All landscapes are beautiful, especially beaches but the best to paint would be misty mountains, where you can have different layers of light and dark colours to indicate the mountains. Looks like it's going to be a fun class. Cheers :)

Sangita Pillai said...

Not sure if my comment went through, as I can't see it among the sea of comments. So reposting...

Kelley said...

Since I live on a rock in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, water scenes pull at my heart strings. This looks like a great class!

Shine on!
Kelley

Brig said...

The ocean has been the main focus for me but lately I've been appreciating any landscape that captures a nice light on it – contrasting light and shadow – so I can add lots of colours into the piece.

Kerrie said...

The sunrise! The quiet stillness and ever-changing colors is what inspires me the most!

iHanna said...

Love the Lucy + Alisa painting movies, you two are such a great team. Thanks for sharing, it makes me happy to see this videos.
