Paint a Springtime scene in Acrylics

Springtime painting

About the Course


In this class we will create a beautiful springtime painting of two sheep under a blossom tree.

I will guide you every step of the way from setting up your stay wet palette right through to putting in the final finishing touches.

You will see me paint in real time, and I'm a very slow painter so you won't ever feel rushed.

The class is split into lessons each with a video, you can stop and start when you want to.

You will be amazed at what you can create even if you haven't painted for some time.

You may already know that making art can be a lot of fun and very fulfilling. When you are being creative you can become lost in the process and this is super relaxing, it really is good for the mind, body and soul.

The course includes a suggested materials list. All you need to do is pull together your materials, pour yourself a glass of something or make a nice cup of tea and watch the videos. You can can stop and start them as you wish and watch them over and over again.You will be joining artists from around the world and creating art in a unique and exciting way from the comfort of your own home or studio.


This course is for absolute beginners and more experienced artists who would like to try something different.

It is for people who would like to see how to create a painting from beginning to end, everything is shown in real-time. I know when I was learning to paint many years ago I really wanted to see the whole process, not just time-lapse videos that make it look really easy.

Making art is fun and relaxing, let me show you how easy it can be to create some beautiful pictures. Join me in this soothing class and unlock the creativity inside you that’s just waiting to break free.


I hope that you will learn lots of things by completing this course. In particular, I would like you to take some time out for yourself and by completing the course find out that you can complete a painting that you are proud of. Some specific things you will learn include:

how to mix colours
how to apply the paint
how to create a stay wet palette
how to relax and enjoy painting
how to build up layers of paint to create subtlety in your work
