Landscape Painting Fundamentals Curriculum at Sentient Academy
I designed this eight-lesson course (Block 1) to illustrate and teach the basic principles of landscape painting. There are plenty of demonstrations, in-depth instruction and paintings filmed from start to finish. Watch every color mixture and brush stroke.
All lessons have been filmed in high-quality 4K and are ready to stream from the Sentient Academy website.
Each pre-recorded video lesson lasts about an hour. All the following topics are explained and illustrated:
Block 1 Topics
- Drawing (shape accuracy)
- Space (positive and negative)
- Perspective (linear and aerial)
- Principles of good design
- Designs to avoid
- Using Adobe Photoshop for design
- Value (including high-key and low-key)
- Practical mixing methods
- Complementary colors
- Color temperature
- Color harmony
- Painting with a limited palette
- Edge handling and texture
- Paint application
Block 2 Extended Demonstrations
Once you’ve completed the eight lessons in Block 1, you can continue learning with my extended demonstrations in Block 2. I’m continuing to develop these, but have already posted:
- Two plein air painting demonstrations
- Two large studio painting demonstrations
Sentient Academy also features a community component. You can post images of your work as you go through the course so that other students and instructors can provide feedback.
You can purchase one-year unlimited access to my entire course for $130, including all lessons in Block 1 and Block 2. (That’s less than $11 per lesson, with more lessons to come.)
Or for $50 per month, you will receive access to one lesson per week, PLUS included weekly lessons from 10 other Sentient courses (the Skill Accelerator Bundle).
