Through his profound understanding of the physical nature of landscapes and his highly developed artistic sense, John F. Carlson was able to clearly explain both the whys and the hows of the various aspects of landscape painting. Among the subjects he often covered in his teachings were angles and consequent values (an insightful concept necessary for strong overall unity of design), aerial and linear perspective, the painting of trees, the emotional properties of line and mass in composition, light, unity of tone, choice of subject, and memory work. He also taught how to make the best of canvas, palette, colors, brushes, and other materials, and also gave valuable advice about texture, glazing, varnishing, bleaching, retouching, and framing.
