What this course gives you?

In this course you will improve your skills in painting seascapes, coast lines, sky and whales. You will work developing your eye for light and reflections, shading, atmospheric perspective and depth.

What is in the course?

This course contains four lessons. You will continue to learn the theory of atmospheric perspective and use this knowledge in practice. You will paint four seascape scenes, where you will experiment with different watercolour techniques.

You will study in the fully designed art studio space at Pakenham, Ontario, Canada. There will be a lots of exercise that will help you to become confident in seascape painting. After the class you will get an access to video tutorial of the main subject of the class study.
