Learn to Paint abstract landscapes
This course is for you:
if you feel inspired by nature
- If you would like to let go of perfectionism.
if you want to try a new art style.
If you want to learn new ways of using your watercolour paint
if you want to build an art habit and create on a regular basis.
if you don't know where to start and you would like to paint as part of a creative community.
if you are looking for a creative, fun and artful month.
Do I need to be good at drawing to join?
The course starts really easy with real time video's. No drawing or painting experience is needed. There will be minimal sketching in the course and one of the goals is to let loose and experiment.
a little mistake can create the most amazing results at times.
What are we making?
In this course you will learn how to paint in a loose and free way.
we experiment and practice with our paints and you will learn how to create lots of different textures to create interest in your paintings.
play with curiousity
we will combine different other materials with out paint to see what happens. There is space for mistakes and experimentation in this course. some results will be more pleasing than others but the most important thing is to have fun!
What Materials Do I need?
Part of the course is experimenting with different materials. You do not need to have all the materials that I use and feel free to try using other materials if you have these already. I want to inspire you to try materials you have and if you have any questions, please ask away!
As a minimum I would recommend:
a HB sketch pencil, eraser and sharpener
Watercolour brushes, a container for water, cloth and a palette.
Water based paint; watercolour paint or gouache
Watercolour paper, I would recommend thicker paper as we will use a lot of water. I use 300 GSM watercolour paper. 100% cotton paper is of the highest quality but also most expensive.
The following are optional:
a piece of hard plastic
a spray bottle for water
You can find my favourite art materials in the FAQ
If you would like to draw as part of a fun and inclusive group, why not check out the Makings & Musings Community.
In the community we draw and paint together twice a month, you will find art tutorials and lots of inspiration.
The community is perfect if you want to experiment with materials, if you are looking for a reason to make time for art and it is the perfect place to share your work in a safe non-judgemental environment!
Hands on approach
I love a no-nonsense approach to art as the best way to learn is by creating.
In this course we will do minimal sketching we will start painting from day one and I invite you to draw along from the start.
My hope is that you will carry on painting after you have completed this course and that I help you finding your own creative voice in the process.
How does it work?
During the course you can see what I do as if you are looking over my shoulder. I explain each step I take and you can see exactly what movements I make.
If you sign up today you will immediately have access to the day one drawing plus all introduction video's. As I do not want to overwhelm you with video's you will get access to a new session every few days after for 30 days.
Share your work
after each session I ask you to share your artwork with me, if you do that in the course I am the only person who will see it and I can give feedback if you like.
You can also share your artwork in the discussion group where all course participants can see it. (This may sound scary but it's a great step towards sharing your artwork with the world eventually if that's something you want to do.)
