About Course

Welcome to my online course, ‘The Landscape’. The purpose of this course is for you to learn to use paint in order to evoke a mood or atmosphere without copying an image exactly. The course is tailored more towards using oil paint but please feel free to use acrylics if you prefer. I will be teaching you how to loosen up and encouraging you to create your own style of painting. The course is suitable for both beginners and professionals. It is fun, relaxed and there is no pressure!


The course is broken down into videos, images and text and you can stop and start as many times as you wish. It can be accessed from anywhere in the world and is designed to fit into your schedule. As it is an online course, there are a list of materials you will need to purchase before you begin so please email me if you are confused with anything. We will start with some experimental painting and then move on to a landscape followed by a seascape.


I want to be able to help you as much as I can so if you need further assistance, I will be at hand by email to give you extra guidance and constructive criticism.



Please note: If you are viewing the course on an apple device, you may need to change the settings to view it properly. To do this:

Open Settings > Go to Safari> Under Privacy, ‘ensure prevent cross -site tracking button is switched off’


Art Materials List


I have listed below some art materials required for the course but you do not need to use the exact same brushes, brands of paints and tools that I do. I am just showing you what I use and what works for me. If you have any questions about materials, please do not hesitate to email me on


I am tailoring this list towards oil painters but if you use acrylics, you will just need water instead of solvent (a spray bottle filled with water would work for some of the techniques)


If you choose to use acrylics instead of oils, then you will not need the solvent or the oil but just water in a mug instead.


  • Oil Paper
  • Canvasses 
  • Gesso primer if your canvasses are not primed
  • Oil Paints (there are not rules regarding exact colours to buy but I will make some suggestions) or Acrylic Paints if you prefer to use these
  • A clear oil medium (to help the spread and flow of the paint) and a small dish / mug to put it in 
  • Paint Thinner / solvent and a mug just for this
  • Mugs / jam jars
  • A range of brushes (These don’t need to be expensive, high-quality brushes) Old bristly brushes work well too 
  • Baby Wipes or wet wipes of any kind
  • Disposable paint palettes or tin / aluminum foil
  • Palette knife (I like one that is smaller and slightly bendy to help spread the paint)
  • A stand easel / desk easel. You can work on a table if it is easier

Landscape painting is all about texture so think outside the box for items to use. You don’t need to spend much money on these! Ideas include;


  • Rags, Tissue paper / kitchen roll (this is used specially to dab on the painting for the effect of flowers)
  • Crayons, pencils, pen, marker, collage, dried herbs and spices
