Painting Birds can become addictive! They are beautiful creatures, most especially the tropical birds and their colorful feathers. This little Asian Parakeet belongs to my brother. He is just the sweetest bird and always wants his head stroked. Rather than paint him on a perch, I decided to feature him in his natural setting. I chose a tree branch complete with moss, and a wild orchid plant growing high up in the forest canopy. I felt this offered a much more attractive composition to showcase this beautiful green bird.

This online painting class is designed for the up and coming artist who wishes to paint a tropical bird in a natural tree setting. Class emphasis is placed on learning to paint the feathers, handling the light source, painting bark, moss, water drops, and many other details.

There are many different acrylic painting techniques and painting exercises included in this course. Several of which are transferrable to other bird subjects you might paint in the future.

Class Learning Outcomes 

  • Learn about textural contrasts ranging from the atmospheric background, realistic tree moss, moisture and water drops.
  • Learn how hard and soft, lost and found edges are used for establishing depth and three dimension.
  • Learn to work with a light source.

Watch and learn from the best seat in the house

One of the greatest benefits to taking an online class like this, is having the ability to hit the rewind button. If you need to re-watch a particular painting technique more than once, you can do so with a click. This also gives you lots of time to practice and digest the information at your own pace. Watching the videos from the best seat in the house gives you an over the shoulder view of the whole painting process from start to finish. Below is a short video snippet of the final painting details from the male lion. You can see every stroke at very close range.

 All Skill Levels Are Welcome

This course has been designed for all skill levels of painter. Naturally it is recommended that you have some prior painting experience. That said, you will meet many painters who are at various stages of their artistic journey. Everyone supports each other and is very helpful and friendly.

  2. Love this class!

    Posted by Margo M. on 26th Dec 2015

    I certainly was not into tropical birds until I saw this class! Neadeen is so great explaining how to paint tropical birds! Great class, lots of hours of video instruction, lots of helpful explanations and tips! You can never go wrong with any classes you take from this school! The quality is always great! Thank you so much guys! You gave me hope and knowledge to get better as an artist! This is priceless.


  3. Full of information

    Posted by Fiona Kear on 24th Sep 2015

    There is so much information and technique in this lesson I will be doing it more than once. Neadeen is an excellent teacher and almost makes this feel easy. It definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me in many areas. Highly recommended.


  4. Asian Parakeet

    Posted by David Triche on 29th Oct 2012

    I just finished watching the entire video, first before I will paint it. The is absolutely gorgeous and very realistic. Not only do you see how the painting comes alive, it is shown Step-by Step. Thanks for such a wonderful piece of art.

    Lots of real learning.

    Posted by Sally R in Richmond, VA on 2nd Jan 2011

    This was a challenge for me, the instructor walked me through the class and it was not difficult as I imagined. Sign me up for more!


  8. This design is fresh and happy!!

    Posted by J from Oregon on 29th Dec 2010

    I paint anything with a tropical flavor for my brother. He lives in Jamaica and it fits right in his home. This class is well developed and the instructor is excellent. I have yaken many other classes at the AAO and loved them all.


  9. My first online experience!

    Posted by Sandy L. Florida US on 29th Dec 2010

    The fear of taking a painting class online was removed when I realized how easy this was. the videos and detailed instructions,wow! it was a breeze. Have taken quite a few now. The AAO is my second home!!


  10. Great teaching skills

    Posted by Maria P on 22nd Dec 2010

    Wonderful class, the videos are very detailed and easy to follow. Not only are the brush techniques learnt, but also the theory behind why the painting is painted as it is. This allows what is learnt to be able to be implemented into another painting if so desired. It's so much easier to paint when you understand the "why" behind what you do. Worth every cent paid!!!!


  11. Best learning experience

    Posted by Annie B on 20th Dec 2010

    This was my first online class. It was very enjoyable and I'm still in shock that I painted such a lovely painting. Thank you. Great presentation.


  12. Tropical birds are my favorite birds!

    Posted by Joyce Anderson on 20th Dec 2010

    This class was a pleasure to paint. We had an asian parakeet as a pet when I was a kid. I was so excited to see this offered as a class. Well done instructions and I watched the videos over and over. Thank you for an excellent class.


  13. An Excellent Class!

    Posted by Carol O'Connor-Eisenberg on 9th Dec 2010

    I cannot say enough for the quality of teaching in this course. I have been to many classes with live teachers and never learned anywhere near what was presented here. I learned so much about how to create the illusion of the various textures of the bird and its surroundings, how to use color to give depth to the painting, The combination of well written instructions, many step by step photo, and all of the video is an unbelievable value for the price. Plus you have access to the teacher with any questions you may have, critiques, etc. And your lessons are ready for you whenever you have the time for painting.


  14. Fantastic bird

    Posted by Claire Marquis on 9th Dec 2010
