This course is ideal for beginners and even those who have never picked up a brush before. We will explain all you need to know to get started, what art supplies you need including brushes, paints and canvases etc. The course is suitable for both oil painting and acrylics.
Here is what we will be covering over the course of 6 weeks:
Week 1 – Clouds
We start off our journey by looking at clouds and how to paint them more effectively. We look at the impact of light and the position of the sun on clouds, and how to integrate clouds into your painting for greater realism. Clouds set the mood of your painting and learning how to paint different atmospheres with clouds is essential as you advance with your landscape painting.
Week 2 – Mountains & Hills
We continue you our work with Mountains and Hills in our landscapes. In this level 2 course though we take it further by taking a closer look at the details you might find in your mountains and clouds. We further look at perspective and creating depth through tone and the use of warm vs cool colours. We will explore both alpine mountains, rolling hills that you might find in Tuscany, and typical Australian mountain ranges.
Week 3 – Trees, Shrubs, Grasses
Now we come to a more in-depth look at trees, shrubs and grasses. This time we will focus in more on the different types of trees you might find such as gum trees, pine trees, oak trees and poplar trees. The principle of painting trees is the same no matter what type so we will make sure you understand these principles so you can paint any trees you like in the future. Plus we will look at shrubs, bushes and grasses.
Week 4 – Buildings, Houses, Sheds
In level 1 we painted buildings from a distance which required almost no detail. No in this level 2 course we are going to look at more of the details painting larger buildings, houses and sheds. By being able to paint structures like buildings, houses and sheds you can use these as the focal point in your painting and base the story of your painting around these. We will focus on perspective so that your buildings look right and we will look at how do you make them look integrated into the landscape rather than looking like they were cut and pasted.
Week 5 – Landscape Details (Fences, Windmills, Foreground, Rocks, Paths)
In week 5 we focus in on finishing touches. These are so important in a landscape and cover everything from fences, windmills, foreground details, rocks, paths, ponds and dams, broken tree branches, people, animals etc. There are so many little finishing touches you can add into a painting to bring it to life and we will be exploring these in some detail.
By the time you have finished week 5 you will have gained a greater sense of mastery over painting the key elements in a landscape painting and your confidence will be soaring.
Week 6 – Painting Your Landscape
In week 6 I will paint a complete landscape painting of an intermediate level for you going into much more detail with each of the elements than we did in the level 1 course. You will then complete the painting project following the steps given.
BONUS – A Complete Painting From “Yes You Can Paint” TV Show
As a bonus for joining us for this course you will also receive the complete painting demonstration from one of the episodes of the new TV show “Yes You Can Paint”. This will be a typical landscape painting that covers of many of the elements that we looked at in the 6 weeks of the course.
PLUS … As an added BONUS
Plus you will also receive an additional complete landscape painting project from our DVD of the Month club which features a landscape setting with a cottage and large gum tree. Again this is another great project to help you further develop your skills.
Remember that each step along the way I will be asking you to take photos of your work and send it to me so that I can give you valuable feedback.
When you complete the course you will receive a certificate of completion of the course that you can hang on your wall next to your paintings.
By the time you complete the 6 week course you will have a solid understanding of how to paint landscapes at an intermediate level.
