Painting Simple Landscapes for Beginners

If painting a dramatic landscape painting is a subject and style you've always wanted to explore… then working with a brilliant limited color palette is one of the keys to your success. There are specific ways to mix and control color to give you the clean and vibrant colors you see in this painting. The secret is in knowing how to mix color relative to light and creating a mood for your painting.

Personally I have always loved bold and brilliant color, especially when it describes a certain time of the day. In this case that would be dawn.  The class goal is to show you how easy it is to build a landscape composition from the ground floor up! In this class, I wanted the students to experience working with a unique type of light source. Rather than the light coming in from the front or above, I want you to learn how back lighting is a very effective way to create drama! The poppies in the foreground are presented in a way that makes them look luminous and touchable. The light source helps us create this beautiful mood and unique color effects.


Students learn how to work with the brilliant colors using a limited palette and working with a specific color scale. This knowledge helps you adjust colors for describing the effects of light, cloud textures in the sky as well as the poppy flowers. This style of mixing will also help you to create many beautiful paintings in the future. 

There are several learning outcomes for this online painting class. You’ll learn how to blend with larger brushes, how to create gradations of color across large areas. You'll learn direct painting methods to help you paint loose and painterly styled flowers and foliage. As you paint along with the course video demonstrations, you’ll be discovering an assortment of painting applications that are fun and easy to master.

 Step By Step Videos and Written Lessons

Make Painting Very Easy to Follow


  • The course lessons and videos start out by explaining in detail the concept of painting with a chromatic value scale. This sounds scary, but in reality, it is the easiest way to adjust your colors and you'll be excited to use this again. You will be amazed at how this will change the way you think about adjusting your colors in the future. This new information will make you feel confident as you learn to control the colors of this painting, and create subtle differences between textures in the clouds, fields, poppy flowers and poppy leaves and pods.


  • The class goal is for you to paint a lovely Tuscan or Italian themed painting, one that you will be proud to hang on your wall and show off to friends. As we move through the course videos together, you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment with each stage of the painting.
  • You will also learn effective brush mixing techniques using wet in wet blending.
  • One of the most important aspects of all my online art classes, is the fact that I like to explore and use the elements of art for creating repetition and contrast, and to establish relationships and movement through color. This might sound complicated right now, but I can assure you, it is explained is easy to follow language and will make complete sense when you see it used in context.
  • There are many classroom forums where photographs and questions and answers are shared between students and the instructor. This helps the student know that they are on the right track. If there are any issues or challenges, these Q & A’s forums help clarify anything that might not be completely clear to you.
  • Unlimited access to classroom materials, classroom is always open. You can work along at your own pace as the course is designed to be flexible to fit with busy schedules.

Please Note:The painting techniques are taught with acrylic paint. However the techniques learned and demonstrated, can also be adapted for oil painting. Some adjustments will be necessary to drying times and paint viscosity.

 Testimonial from a Student

"It was a rewarding experience,

...having the tutor demonstrating on video to 'me' - Nola Jones

from Moyhu,Victoria, Australia


 “This beautiful sunset, was a new challenge in Online learning for me. It was a rewarding experience, having the tutor demonstrating on video to 'me'.
Learning so many techniques, that I can take onto further studies, will hopefully broaden my skills. Neadeen's ability to explain the steps and guide me through, was fantastic. Achieving the mood, perspective, back lighting and translucent poppies with their different positions, chromatic palette and mixing on the painting itself and much more, all teach the student how to have better control in their paintings. Extremely valuable lessons to use.”

Extra Bonus Features and Benefits for the Student

One of the greatest benefits to taking an online art class like this is having the ability to hit the rewind button. If you need to re-watch a painting technique more than once, you can do so as many times as you want. This 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.                                               


Another added bonus of this style of painting class, is the fact that you are not only learning to paint a pretty picture, you are learning all the theory that is involved to create it. For an art student this is knowledge that you will take with you forever. It will build your confidence and help you mature as an artist in so many ways. You'll become more observant about flower shapes, you'll be looking at different types of light sources, AND you'll be adjusting color as if you've done it all your life!

Exploring the concepts of Perspective can hardly be ignored when painting a landscape. In this class you will encounter a few elements that are key to correct perspective. This aspect of the class will help you 'see' how to illustrate correct perspective. There's a little bit of leaning around every corner!

The painting surface is a 36"x 12" gallery styled canvas. This provides an excellent support for this composition. 'Poppy Fields At Dawn' is a very fun yet educational online art class. Join me for this class and I'll walk you through the painting process with my step by step instructions and videos. I paint using artist grade acrylics, however the lesson can also be painted in oils. Only pure artist grade pigments are used. You can see the list of suggested colors below.

    Making poppies pop!

    Posted by Ann Patmore on 9th Dec 2010

    I started this class when it was first offered and, never having really painted before, I did not expect to produce anything acceptable but I was so wrong. With Neadeen's great tuition she taught me to see the things I had missed and needed to acknowledge. I loved every minute of this class, it is vibrant with colour and techniques. The videos are so comprehensive and it is like having a friend next to you as you paint.
