Majestic Landscapes, is an instructional video with classically trained oil painter, Ken Salaz. Ken is a highly talented artist, magician, and mentalist, and an instructor with the coveted Hudson River Fellowship. In 2018, Ken was named a Living Master by the Art Renewal Center, a high-level designation that very few artists possess.

One of the most valuable things you’re going to learn from Ken is his self-invented, proven system for creating landscape paintings.

He calls it “The Butterfly System,” and he developed it to help everyone he teaches to really grasp the concepts of painting. He takes three elements that are in the landscape and brings them together with the three elements of painting, so you always have an intentional approach and a specific system to follow. This will help you paint with more self-assurance because you’ll have a strong foundation and structure to help guide you.

With this new approach, you will ALWAYS know how to move your paintings forward rather than staying stuck in repetitive mistakes.

Ken began capturing landscapes at the age of 7. Inspired by the beauty of the Arizona desert and encouraged by his family, Ken custom-designed his career to incorporate everything he loves to do —working as a professional and highly accomplished oil painter and entertaining audiences as an in-demand magician and mentalist.

You will really appreciate Ken’s casual and encouraging teaching style, allowing you to incorporate the Butterfly System into your next painting. The entertainer in him shines through, making it very easy for you to learn from him, regardless of where you are on your journey as an artist.

Prepare to be amazed as Ken reveals his long-practiced and perfected painting maneuvers that will help you feel as though your paintbrush has turned into a magic wand!

Study with Ken and let him show you how to paint magic!

Ken Salaz

Ken Salaz in his paintings, Video and Book. harkens back to the Transcendentalism of Thoreau and Emerson who believed that Divinity was present in nature and that Landscape reflected that divinity. Hence the Hudson River School paintings demonstrate meticulous detail and brilliant color, which they inherited from the Luminists. Their landscapes were bathed in a light whose glow touched all the objects in the scene. Ken Salaz is firmly in that tradition of landscape painting. On this DVD he paints a brilliant sunset which touches and enhances the objects in this landscape. He not only carefully explains the techniques he has employed to create the objects of his landscape, but also how he lights it with that magnificent glow so typical of the Hudson River School. This is a great teaching DVD by a master Teacher and should be in the library of every landscape painter.

This man is a fantastic artist and teacher. I love this lesson. I want more. I watched this eleven hours of instruction in one setting. I simply could not tear myself away from it. I expect I will watch it again, and again though in smaller segment. There is just so much to learn from him. I hope he does create more videos and soon.

This is an excellent teaching video, one of the best ones I own and I have several. Not only does Ken teach a wonderful technique but he gives philosophical insight as well concerning not just how but why to paint with many quotes from famous artists from the past. Highly recommended!!

Sublime landscapes

The most inspiring landscapes and methods to achieve them. I like the butterfly system because one has the method to make corrections during the process. He's a natural at teaching.
