Our Painting Seascapes online course will show you how to represent the sea in your paintings. Moreover, the course will help you to develop your skill as a painter. However, please note that you will need prior painting experience to join the class.


Whether calm or rough, the sea can be soothing and relaxing, as well as romantic. In these two sessions, you will study the anatomy and colours of waves to create your own atmosphere. After all, the sea’s waters and the subtlety of the changes in light that they reflect are hard to show. Hence why the challenge that has fascinated artists throughout the history of art. If you, too, feel the fascination of the sea, this course will help you show what you see. Above all, you will gain confidence in your ability as a painter while also learning specific tricks and effects to improve your representation of water.
