    You don't need tutorials--you need to learn what went wrong with your previous landscapes. If you can't figure out the answer yourself, post the work here and ask for critiques.

    The best advice I can offer you is to paint from photos and real life whenever you get the chance. Intelligently analyze what makes things look the way they do and try to commit that to memory.

    ^ That's always fun. Mr. Ross inspired me to create some interesting PS brushes.

    He's on YouTube. Pity he's not syndicated anymore, at least where I live...

    I guess it's not that I'm against tutorials, Matthius. Heck, I read them all the time. But I can't really think of any really good ones on landscape painting. I did one on deviantArt a year or so ago. My techniques have changed, and I've certainly improved, but take a look if you wish. It's a fairly good primer, I suppose.

    The big thing is that you just have to DO IT. Once you've seen what your attempts look like, you can identify problems (and ask other people to identify problems) and then work on fixing them. Over time, you'll improve. It's not an overnight process.

    Can you draw happy little trees with them?

    There's a similar guy named Jerry Yarnell, who's got some books available, in case anyone was interested. Also, a magazine called Photoshop Creative often runs workshops of this nature.

    If you're interested in doing more wet-on-wet blending (a la Bob Ross' oil painting technique), set up your brush with Colour Dynamics enabled, and use the Foreground/Background Colour Jitter set to Pen Pressure. Then switch the foreground and background colour.

    That way, light pressure gives you complete coverage, while increasing the pressure adds the background colour.

    Another thing you can use is the smudge tool, with Finger Painting enabled, and the strength increased. This gives you a result similar to the Artist's Oils in Painter.

    That was the goal. Unfortunately, it seems nothing beats a "big ole one-inch brush." My results weren't as great as I'd hoped.
