Our first online painting course is now available! Learn how you can create your own imaginary landscapes and environments by connecting with nature and your own creativity.
Painting a landscape from imagination is a fascinating process. It allows you to bring whole worlds on to the canvas that only existed within your fantasy before. The possibilities are endless and there are basically no boundaries to your creativity. What is a landscape that you are dreaming about? What atmosphere would it have? What kind of plants and trees would you plant? What colours would you use?
While painting from imagination is a very intuitive process, we still want our landscapes to look real. And for that it is important to learn some basic rules and techniques on how nature works and how to transfer that onto the canvas. This course will guide you step by step through the whole process - from the materials you need, setting up a landscape, creating perspective, easy brush techniques to how to make your landscape three-dimensional using light and shadow.
In this course we will start from the very beginning. You will learn about the basics of oil painting, how to use colours, different brushes and simple techniques to practice.
Landscape painting is often taught in very similar ways. In this course we forget about all that and work only with our intuition and memory by learning the behaviour and different patterns of nature.
Painting is a lot about practice. And still there are many techniques and tricks you can use to make your landscape look realistic in very easy ways. This course will give you lots of useful knowledge about perspective, three-dimensionality and how to set up a landscape.
Maybe you always wanted to express yourself creatively, but you just don't know where to begin? This course will guide you in a fun and refreshing way - with lots of enthusiasm and positive energy included. :)
Through the course you will get access to an exclusive community, where you can ask questions directly to Joachim, connect with likeminded people and also get the chance to show your painting in our online gallery.
The approach that you learn in this course is the same approach you will also use in much more complex and advanced paintings. In this way of painting everything that you learn you build on what you have learned before. So, after this course you will be well equipped to progress and continue on your own.
The course has 11 lessons and includes a step by step guidance of two different paintings - a more simple and a more complex one. So, depending on your level you will always be able to choose between a more easy and a more difficult approach. The videos are designed to give you all the information you need in a short and compact amount of time, so you can get started right away!
For every step you take on your painting journey there is probably somebody out there who has been there too. In our community forum we hope to create a place, where you can come together, connect, share about your experiences, get to know other artists and learn from each other. If you have any questions about the course you can also directly reach out to Joachim and get individual assistance.
When you have created an artwork it's always wonderful to be able to show it. So, after you have finished the course you will get the chance to submit your painting to the Art of Nature - Gallery. Write a little bit about yourself, maybe attach a link to your website or Instagram and show your painting to the world! We can't wait to see what you have created.
Joachim Ingulstad is a full-time and self taught landscape painter. Inspired by the 18th century landscape painters like Kaspar David Friedrich he mostly learned by trial and error. Early on in the process he discovered that many of the usual techniques in oil painting such as copying from outside or photo realism did not satisfy his wish to create his own worlds and restricted the freedom to imagine. As such he made a pledge to never look at anything while engaged in a painting. And so the first step was taken in finding his own style and approach into landscape painting, which he has now developed and refined over the last 12 years. Today he paints on a wide variety of objects such as porcelain, glass, wood and canvas all the while using the way of imagination and memory.
