Sorolla: Painting the Color of Light

     With this exclusive video training, you will learn:

    • The working methods and incredible techniques of Sorolla (Claude Monet even called him "the master of light")
    • The way he actually applied the paint to produce such a stunning end result
    • How Sorolla conveyed the intensity of light in his paintings
    • The value of working at a fast pace so you're not even thinking while you paint


    Joaquín Sorolla is one of the most respected painters ever to have lived.

    The way he mastered the color of light is something other artists dream about...

    ...yet can never quite pull off. 

    Though one person who has mastered it is Thomas Jefferson Kitts — a modern master in the color of light. 

    That is why we are beyond delighted to make this announcement:

    We managed to persuade Kitts to come to our studios to film what will surely go down as one of the great art trainings of all time captured on camera. 

    In this release from Streamline Art Video, Kitts shows you how to paint like Sorolla.

    It's like breathing life into a painting when you master the use of color in light.
