"I feel like I learned more watching and listening to this course than any other class that I've ever taken. Thank you!" - Bonny E.

Brushstrokes are at the core of being an artist, and an individual's brushwork is one of the things that sets them apart from other artists. Using her approachable, easy-to-understand teaching method and lots of hands-on activities, artist Jill Poyerd breaks down historic and contemporary brushwork into twenty-two unique brushstrokes, using both oil and watercolor paint in her demonstrations. 

This course is part one of a two-part series and covers twelve of the twenty-two strokes. They are broken down by style of application and include a brief history, examples of how they're used in masterpieces, visual demonstrations, and student practice exercises. By combining technical learning with visual and hands-on examples, students will gain a thorough understanding of each brushstroke variation. Part one covers invisible strokes, direct painting, strokes that use light amounts of paint, and strokes that use thick, impasto paint.

Note: Demonstrations are given in both watercolor and oil paint. Acrylic painters simply have to apply the knowledge depending on how they use that medium, whether thick (like oil) or thin (like watercolor).

"I can see a noticeable difference in my painting since practicing these brushstrokes and putting it all together. I can now see more like a painter then before. Thank you for a fantastic course." - Kai Z

Brushstrokes are at the core of being an artist, and an individual's brushwork is one of the things that sets them apart from other artists. Using her approachable, easy-to-understand teaching method and lots of hands-on activities, artist Jill Poyerd breaks down historic and contemporary brushwork into twenty-two unique brushstrokes from traditional to unconventional. 

This course is part two of a two-part series and covers ten of the twenty-two strokes. They are broken down by style of application and include a brief history, examples of how they're used in masterpieces, visual demonstrations, and student practice exercises. By combining technical learning with visual and hands-on examples, students gain a thorough understanding of each brushstroke variation. Part two covers broken strokes as well as alternative application methods and finishes with a five-stroke painting exercise.

Note: Demonstrations are given in both watercolor and oil paint. Acrylic painters simply have to apply the knowledge depending on how they use that medium, whether thick (like oil) or thin (like watercolor).

In this course, "Acrylic Abstract Painting Atmospheric Landscapes", you'll learn how to create your own gorgeous abstract paintings in a style I call atmospheric landscapes.

I call them that because they only imply a landscape, and don't describe it in detail. They're meant as abstract works of art to capture the overall feeling of a scene, and they remind me of Mountains, and Canyons.

So who is this course for? Well that's simple really, it's for anyone with basic knowledge of acrylic paints and a desire to learn the techniques used to create paintings like those shown in the Promo Video.

What will you need? The usual items;

  • Acrylic Paints
  • Paint Brushes
  • Canvas 
  • Palette

I listed this course as appropriate for all levels, but in truth if you've never picked up a brush in your life then you might want to start with my beginners course. In this course I assume you have at least some basic knowledge of acrylic paints and how to use them.

As always this course comes with Lifetime Access and I've made all the videos downloadable so you can carry them on any device (most any device, some might not allow the download) for your convenience .

And as always there's a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee so if for any reason you aren't 100% satisfied, you can get a complete refund.

There are 3 Step by Step Demos in this course, each one a bit different, but I already know that many of you are going to put your own spin on this style, and I encourage you to do so. Even if you're a beginning student, if the urge to detour from the step by step demos comes over you, by all means Follow Your Muse!

And please share pictures of your atmospheric landscapes with the rest of us when they're done. You can upload them here or in the Facebook Group. I'm here for you if you need any help.

Thank you and I hope you decide to enroll today.

Use these methods and knowledge to start your painting off right if you're a total beginner, or to take your painting style to the next level if you're more experienced. You’ve never painted like this before.

You can paint along with me during this entire course. I even have a camera angle that shows my palette as I'm mixing colors. You will learn crucial painting techniques in the process of creating a beautiful painting. Or feel free to just sit back and enjoy the show as I create a painting from scratch.

The reference photo I'm using is provided, as well as a materials list. You're free to use your own style of materials of course, but I'll list every single thing I use. I also provide a PDF flipbook showing each stage of the painting, so you can flip through quickly and see how the painting builds with each stage.

This course is partial toward using oil paint, and I highly recommend it, however you can use acrylics also. Many of the concepts I discuss in this course apply to all mediums of art.

So take this course if you're ready to improve your painting with methods you've probably never seen before, and will have you thinking about painting in a new way. For all levels of painters.

Teaching style

Unscripted and hands-on, my style of teaching is a "real world" classroom format where I take you through the whole artistic process:  sketching, painting, and even making mistakes, while I narrate my stream of consciousness thoughts in between teaching various useful skills as we paint.  

Supplies you will need: Acrylic black paint, Mars black is good, but any kind of black will do. Titanium white, or just use acrylic white gesso. The brand of acrylic paint can be whichever brand you prefer. I use Liquitex and Blick brands. Brushes: Having a 1" flat brush and a 1/2" brush will be helpful. Along with a cup of water for cleaning and moistening your brushes, and some paper towels for cleaning them now and then. Canvas can be any type you like. I will be using Arches #180 paper, but you can use stretched canvas, cardboard, wood panel, or anything you like to paint on. Optionally, you may also want to mat and frame your painting, and a matting frame can be used to check the contrast of your work periodically as we paint together.
