Learn to paint vibrant, exciting and dynamic seascapes in acrylics with one of the studio’s most popular tutors.

This course will lead you through the best approaches to painting loose and lively seascape paintings, getting the best out of your acrylics. From capturing bright and intense sunsets to painting sparkling, reflected light, top tutor Tom Shepherd will give plenty of demonstration as well as individual 1-2-1 guidance.

You will be looking specifically at:

  • Breaking down the composition into simple shapes

  • Creating form

  • Lines of motion and creating movement

  • Giving an impression of water, clouds and rocks

  • Creating exciting texture on the above

Participants can expect to leave with at least 2 finished paintings, with potential for many more. Students will develop a deeper understanding of how expressive seascapes are put together and how to get the best out of their acrylics.

Acrylic paints in a range of colours.
