Do you find that your paintings seldom finish off looking good? Or do you abandon your painting halfway because nothing is looking right? Scraping back the paint in frustration only to abandon the painting is annoying. Not to mention a waste of time and money.

The solution in many cases is what you do even before you begin painting. It is all about the preparation and start where the real outcome is usually determined.

Any professional will tell you that there are a thousand ways to paint your picture and ruin it too. But most agree that getting the painting off to a great start is critical Step One

That is why I decided to create this short course with a focus on the start. This course is based on part of my Learn to Impact Master Course. The latter has much more detail should you want to take your learning to the next level.

The Secret to Your Painting Success will give you much information and practical tips that you can try out now with your next painting. Make that step up in your painting before moving onto more complicated techniques.

You will need the following materials:

  1. The primary colors and white (oils or acrylics)
  2. A canvas or painting panel
  3. Brushes - #6 bristle
  4. Medium or white spirits
  5. Paper towel
  6. Pencil and A5 sketchbook
  7. Black marker pen (thick wedge shaped tip)

Students: 1129, Price:  Free

Hello, my name is Josué Andrade García and I am an independent artist from Oaxaca, Mexico.

I am passionate about expressing my way of seeing life through photography, music, and painting. I use paint to capture the way I see and experience nature, and my environment, on a canvas.

I think that art can help find the peace and creativity that each of us carries within, so my intention is not to impose a method, but to give my students the tools to awake the artist within them.

The Covid-19 quarantine, which I've lived in my hometown in Oaxaca, Mexico, served as an inspiration to create this course. I hope that my students enjoy the course as much as I enjoyed creating it and that through painting, music, and photography, they continue trying new things and awaking their creativity.

In this class you will learn various techniques for painting loose, expressive still life art. It's recommended for intermediate and advanced artists that want to break away from rigid, tight artwork. However, I've included a 'what makes this painting work' for each demo so you can learn what holds it together even though it's loosely painted.

Behind every successful painting is a good design and composition. That and color harmony which is the icing on the cake. Together these ideas will help support an expressive work of art. Without them it will simply fall apart.

Welcome To Abstract Animal Painting Course

Hi, I'm Robert Joyner and I'm excited to share some expressive art making techniques with you. If you are tired of painting stiff, rigid art and want to loosen up while having fun this is the class for you.

The lessons include various ideas such as;

  • Using gestural drawing & sketches

  • Progression sketches

  • Collaging

  • Making your own collage paper

  • Working with images

  • Animals include sea, farm, birds and more...

Who Is This Class For?

Many artists just copy their photos and try to duplicate exactly what they see. The end results are typically boring and lack personality. In this class we will use photos as a starting point but infuse some creativity and expressive painting techniques to create art that's unique and exciting.

If you want to branch out and try something fun and fresh this is a class you don't want to pass up. When you are finished with the lessons you will have a new approach to painting and loads of ideas that will bring you enjoyment and creative freedom.

I've been a full-time artist for over 12 years and have worked for many popular brands as Kentucky Derby, CBS, National Pastime Museum, Carnival Cruise and much more. I have over 8 years experience teaching art and thrilled to offer my lessons here to you on Udemy.

I hope you find the class interesting and hopefully I'll see you on the inside...

Creating beautiful abstract art has never been easier

Hello, my friend! Welcome to class.

In this class, I will show you my very favorite way to create some abstract art without the pressure we put on ourselves when we sit down to create. I used to get so frustrated when I sat down at my table to create art and I was staring at a blank paper. I wanted to paint a masterpiece without all the work and practice. I expected great things to just appear on my paper and I'd go away mad without anything decent to show for my time... and it was so discouraging that it would be months before I'd go back and try again.

This technique I'm going to share with you isn't new, but it truly changed my relationship with my art and my expectations when I sit down to paint. It doesn't really matter what level you are at, this is a great technique for all of us. Perfect for experimenting and learning our papers and supplies, trying out new ideas and color palettes.

Now, every time I sit to create one of these - I'm truly pleased and pretty happy when I get up from my paint table. I know you'll love creating these... I cannot wait to see your pieces!

This class is for you if:

  • You love learning new techniques for your art

  • You are interested in abstract painting

  • You love experimenting with art supplies

  • You love watching how others approach their painting practice

Supplies: I encourage you to use your supplies you have on hand to do your projects. You do not have to purchase any specific supplies for this class. It is all about experimenting with the supplies you have and learning to let loose.

  • Watercolor paper - I Iike cold press and hot press at least 140lb. You can also use oil/acrylic paper - I think the one I'm using in class is 138lb

  • Ceramic paint palette - I show you 2 in class if you are interested in checking them out - I show you one from Sylvan Clayworks and one from Sugarhouse Ceramic Co. You don't need one for class - you can use anything for your paints like paint palette paper or paper plates, etc...

  • Various paintbrushes and mark making tools

  • Various paints in your favorite colors. I'm using a variety of acrylic paints in this class, but feel free to use watercolors, oil paints, inks, etc... the sky is the limit on the supplies you could choose to use and experiment with.

  • I'm using some soft pastels in class - pick some out in your favorite colors if you choose to use any at all.

  • Various Neocolor II Crayons - I love using these and they are water-soluble.

  • Disposable gloves if you are using any toxic art supplies

  • I love using a Stabilo black pencil and the Posca Pen to make marks in my work

  • A few cradled boards if you want to mount your finished pieces to boards.

  • Finishing spray - I show you several I have used to finish my pieces to protect the art.

This is most of the supplies I chose to experiment with in this project... but as I mentioned above - don't think you need to go out and buy tons of new supplies (unless you just want to...). Try this project with some of the supplies you have on hand and grow from there.
