Here is what we will be covering over the course of 6 weeks:

Week 1 – Introduction + Skies

We begin with an introduction to seascape painters for beginners. We will discuss the importance of composition and look at the most critical factor of where to place the horizon.

Then we will begin looking at skies as they dictate the overall mood of a scene. We will start out by painting a simple clear blue sky on a sunny day. Next we will add in some simple but realistic clouds. Finally we will look at how to paint the effect of the setting sun in the sky. (This is a simple technique but has great effects).

Week 2 – Ocean & Waves

In virtually every seascape painting there is going to be the ocean. So in week 2 we will look at establishing the ocean horizon, choosing the right colours, the transition of colours as it moves towards the sand. Then we will look at waves in the distance and breaking waves near the shore line. You will be able to paint simple yet realistic ocean and waves in no time.

Week 3 – Sand

Of course with every seascape painting you will be painting in sand. You need to know how to paint wet sand vs dry sand and also wet sand that is reflecting the sky colour. Plus you will learn how to transition from the breaking waves and water foam to the sand. Getting your sand to look right is essential to a good seascape painting so you will want to learn the principles here.

Week 4 – Mountains, Cliffs & Rocks

Often in good seascape paintings you will find there are distant mountains, or cliffs, and usually rocks. Its great to know how to paint these realistically as they add so much to your seascape painting. So in week 4 we will study how to paint each of these elements to really enhance the overall scene you are painting.

Week 5 – Foreground, People, Seagulls, Pebbles & Seaweed

Now that we are in week 5 we will focus on the foreground. This is so important to finish off your seascape painting. There are so many elements you might want to put into your foreground such as people walking along the beach, seagulls flying through the air, pebbles and rocks and even seaweed. We will explore each of these elements and discuss where to place them in your painting for the right perspective.

By the time you have finished week 5 you will have completed at least four small seascape studies just from doing the exercises given to you.

Week 6 – Paint Your First Seascape

Finally in week 6 I will paint a complete demonstration painting of a typical seascape for you which will pull together all of the elements we have learnt in the previous five weeks. It is important that you understand how each of the previous weeks lessons all work together to form one complete painting. I will give you in depth instruction and then you get to follow along and paint it as well.

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.

At the end of week 6 I will give you some additional seascape painting assignments for you to complete to further enhance your skill and knowledge.

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 basic seascape and you will be ready to move onto level 2.
