Dick Ensing Dvds and Supply Kits
Dick Ensing, owner of the Dutchman's Loft Studio located 1½ miles from Dollywood, paints in the tradition of French impressionism. With Cades Cove and the surrounding country sides as his inspiration, Dick says "landscape painting in the Great Smoky Mountains is a real experience because that light in the mountains is filtered by the atmosphere causing the colors to have a prismatic effect, which creates a mood that captivates the feeling and beauty of God's awesome power. As the 5th generation grandson of the legendary Dutch painter Adrian Van Der Wert (1659-1722), Dick values his heritage, as Adrian was the most famous painter of his day and achieved a high level of academic perfection in all his work, even surpassing Rembrandt who died when Adrian was 10 years old.

Designed to be more of a guide to creativity and imagination than a "formula" to painting, Ensing's teaching process allows you to take these basic elements and easily incorporate them into any type of art you enjoy.
