simple seascape painting in acrylics

You've been wanting to paint seascapes for a while now but

The Problem Is

  • You already have so much going on that there doesn’t seem to be enough time to commit to anything else

  • You don't want to outlay a lot of money when you are not even sure if you will be able to do it

  • You have tried online learning before and it didn't work out so well

What if:

You could learn to paint seascapes in acrylics without making a big commitment.

In fact, after watching 4 short video lessons you could have an impressive seascape painting finished and ready to wow your family and friends PLUS you will have gained a whole lot of knowledge about painting principles and techniques that can be used to in any of your other artworks


Stunning Seascapes are Possible for Everyone

  • Blending and mixing colours smoothly in acrylics can take some practice so I break it all down into detailed, step by step instructions

  • My tri-colour method is a simple, logical process to follow that will add depth to your paintings by making 2D images appear 3D

  • Start at any time, work at your own pace and return to the lessons as often as you like. I offer encouragement along the way and you can also reach out at any time for extra help.

"I didn't think I could do it but surprisingly I could"

is one of the comments I most often hear from students

This course is a lot of work but I've been struggling to paint realistic looking waves & sea foam. Now I know why, I had no concept of complementary colours, reflection or refaction but this course shows you all that and more. Thank you so much, it is well worth the course fee. 😁🎨❤

Absolutely loved this mini course! Although i've dabbled in painting, I have never painted a Seascape or used Acrylic paint in this way before. This course taught me some important theory, about using colour and and complimentary colours when mixing to highlight and shade areas of my picture. In fact the course was full of useful and essential tips. Jenny is an excellent teacher, her instructions were clear and purposeful and she is accessible to answer any questions and give guidance when needed. I was really pleased with my finished painting too. So pleased that i've enrolled in her 'Paint Stunning Seascapes Course'.

Course Creator

Jenny Buchanan

I've been creating and selling paintings and mosaics for 25 years.   Over that time I have sold well over 1000 artworks, won several painting awards, participated in gallery exhibitions and have two public works of art to my credit. I have taught painting classes in acrylics, watercolour and pastels. For the last ten years I have been selling my paintings and mosaics only online. While I have had quite a lot of success as an artist I don't believe that to be my greatest gift. Since launching my first online course in March 2020 I have come to realise that my true gift is being able to show other people how to paint. I also know that getting the best results for my students requires a full time commitment from me. That is why teaching online is all I do. Documenting my processes for the creation of painting lessons has helped me to exactly define my methods so that I can then pass on what I know in a clear and concise way. My experience as an online seller means I know how important it is to have great communication. Having taught in-person classes means that I understand how personal criticism of your work can feel which is why I only ever offer supportive, constructive (but honest) feedback. So I guess what I am trying to say is that I believe I have a unique set of skills that makes me ideally suited to teaching art online. The wonderful feedback I get from my students and followers each day seems to back up this claim. I have painted in a variety of styles which is one of the reasons I was approached by Artable Studio to teach and why I am able to help students paint better while maintaining their own unique style. Staying true to your personality is the only way to achieve real painting success.

Here is my promise to you

  • 30 Day Money Back Guarantee

    I am dedicated to ensuring your acrylic painting success but I understand that everyone learns differently and we may not be a good match. If you try this course and find my teaching methods are not for you just contact me with the first 30 days of your enrolment and I will gladly refund your money.
