Painting the Landscape

Painting the Landscape


This online course is dedicated to artists or art lovers, who want to paint their heartland landscapes.

In this course, I share with you from my studio my processes and methods, tips, and more in live, step-by-step demonstrations.

We are all connected to a Force of Nature that transcends us. By entering its magical world, you will rediscover yourself, in all your nuances, seasons, and emotions. You will hear its whispers, look at the light and the shadows, and be inspired by all the beauty of Nature.

Landscape painting is a way to reconnect with our Essence.

“There is just as much beauty to us in the landscape as we are prepared to appreciate, and not a grain more.”

Henry David Thoreau


Hello, my name is Cristina, I was born and live on Madeira Island, in the North Atlantic Ocean. This is where I get the greatest inspiration to create, as it is an island blessed with magnificent expressions of Nature, that are in some places in their purest and wildest state.

For more than 20 years, I have been dedicated to painting and other forms of artistic expression. It took a lot of resilience and patience to find the means and tools to bring my dreams to life. Fortunately, with the Internet, this great network that unites us, a whole world of new possibilities and hope has opened up.
Directly from my studio, I will share with you everything I have learned over the years, and I hope to be able to help you and make your journey lighter and more beautiful.

In this sharing space, we will create and find the tools to expand and develop creativity, and beyond. We will focus on total surrender to the creative process.
Art is something substantially internal, a way of breathing and living.
We will create with our Hands, with our Imagination, and especially with our Hearts. So that, in a fluid way, magic can enter and give body to your dreams.


How do your Painting Classes and Courses work?
They are one-on-one or in small groups, to give you a deeper understanding, in line with your needs and goals. The painting classes are limited and personalized.
