Before Debra Joy Groesser got into painting full time, she was in real estate.

It’s not like it was her first choice. Art was always her number one.

But she took a detour into that industry to help her then-husband, who had a building company, sell his homes.

And so her art was put on the back burner.

During that time, she missed art and painting terribly, so, to remind herself she was an artist first…

She used the password “artist” to log in to her computer (she doesn’t use it now, by the way).

So every time she logged in, she was reminding herself that the real estate job was just temporary, and that she was really an artist.

Little did she know that simple password, and the act of constantly reminding herself who she wanted to be, would change the entire trajectory of her future!

One day, she decided to call it a day in real estate and pursue art full time…

Fast-forward to today...

The Nebraska artist is now best-known for her impressionistic landscape paintings — particularly her plein air work.

She went even further...

Not only is Debra Joy the CEO and president of the American Impressionist Society...

She’s also a Master Signature member of Plein Air Artists Colorado, a Signature member of Laguna Plein Air Painters Association and American Plains Artists, and an elected artist member of Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters and the Salmagundi Club in New York. 

Her work has been featured in several national art publications, including Art of the West (March 2018), American Art Collector (May 2010), Southwest Art, and a feature article in PleinAir Magazine (November 2014).  

She was a finalist in Southwest Art Magazine’s 2012 Artistic Excellence competition, and was a faculty member for the 2014, 2015, 2018, and 2020 Plein Air Conventions.

On top of all that, she owns her own gallery in her hometown of Ralston, Nebraska, where she’s also the “First Lady”! 

(Her husband, Don, serves as mayor of the city, 24 years and counting!)

Wow. I’m telling you, she’s definitely one to watch for!

And guess what?

Debra Joy is sharing all of the painting insights and wisdom she’s learned throughout her journey in a brand new course called:

In case you’re wondering, this master class is perfect for anyone (beginner, intermediate, and advanced painters) who wants to understand how light influences color in the landscape and the elements of landscape painting.

Debra Joy is a remarkable and accomplished artist herself, and she’s an amazing teacher.

One of her students left this nice testimonial for her:
“You are an amazing artist, and I am so lucky that you had room for me to be in your class. I learned sooooo much! And I believe you were the perfect teacher to introduce me to oils, as well as plein air. I feel so fortunate to have met you. Thank you for your patience and compassion and especially your talent that you shared with me. Thank you!”

Here’s what’s inside:
How Light Influences Color & Atmosphere
You’ll get to watch Debra Joy as she uses a series of photos, plein air studies, and paintings to illustrate her techniques. 

She’s going to review the importance of painting from life, and how to understand the differences between life and photographs.

You’ll be surprised at how much you’re missing if you only use photos! 
The Five Types of Light
You’ll discover the five different types of light, and how to produce each type to create the scene you want. 

I think you’ll find this section extremely insightful, as you can create totally different atmospheres by understanding lighting conditions, the time of day, and the weather.
Key Elements of Landscape Painting
Debra Joy is going to list the key elements not only for landscape painting, but any other subject.

Then she’s going to jump into a more in-depth review of the two most important elements in landscape painting: composition and value.
On Choosing Your Subject
In this section, Debra Joy will use a series of photos, sketches, and paintings to illustrate how she chooses her subjects. 

There will also be a mini-presentation with visual notes to guide you as she reviews motifs, thumbnail sketches, and notans!

She’ll also reveal her “roadmap method” for drawing in the scene. Plus, you’ll learn how to block in shadow shapes and lights.

Then you’ll see how she develops the painting, and how to keep the shape by adjusting the color or temperature within … and finally, you’ll get to see how she finishes her painting (her advice on how to know when you’re done is golden).
