Learn to Use Warm and Cool Colors
In the video snippet below, Neadeen demonstrates how to add character and personality to leaves using transparent color glazes. There is so much to learn about painting leaves, not just in their shape, veins and their edges, but in ha composition, we must learn how to create color relationships between pairs and groupings of leaves. Students will learn how to use warm and cool color temperatures to establish these relationships, as well as how to carry color throughout the painting for harmony and for creating movement and interest.

Wonderful so far. I have never taken online courses before that are as comprehensive and well presented as this one and the other classes I've taken on Art Apprentice.
I am so pleased that I've found this wonderful platform. Art Apprentice is my all time favorite.

I was searching for how to paint birds wings and came across Naedeen, who is the teacher of this class and the bit i saw of her painting the wings really intrigued me, so i went further and found this class.... fell in love immediately with the end result that was shown...... and i started... i am still not far into it, but till now, it has been so instructive, it is so clearly explained and certain details i never knew i needed to know...... and there is so much care taken to have everything explained from the core... that makes everything more pleasant, and much easier to remember and digest.......this is one of the most awesome classes i have taken yet..........

I was reluctant to ever take another online art course after taking a course from a different site that cost more than 5 times what this one cost. It was a complete ripoff, but when I saw the photo of the finished painting for this course, I fell in love with the beautiful colors and blending, and decided to take a chance. I am really glad I did! The instruction is complete and easy to understand, and the "extras", like the essay on the composition of the rain forest, really made me feel like the instructor really cared about making an interesting and engaging presentation that goes beyond the basics of most 'how-to' courses. My only complaint is that the sound quality of the videos is not really great, but I got used to it and didn't have any trouble understanding what was being said after a few minutes.
