What you’ll learn

  • This course will show you how to assess a subject like an artist. Compose and paint a subject with confidence for maximum impact.
  • You will know how to mix colors to the correct value.
  • Why edges are so important.

This course is designed to fill in the gaps left by conventional art instruction. We all want our paintings to stand out. To express our feelings or catch the eye of a collector. What is it that makes a painting move from ordinary to stunning?

The secret is learning how to see like an artist. No matter what your subject the basic foundation for color, value, edges and shapes needs to be in place. I take this further with extensive video demonstrations that give you the confidence to try yourself.

Challenging and fun assignments with demonstrations will help you put theory into practice. In this course you will learn by doing – the best way! Supplemented with over 200 pages of notes, video, slideshows and full demonstrations you will be able to take your painting to higher levels quickly and confidently.

This course will give you the confidence and direction to paint with impact.
